[ENG] Connecting External Sensors
It is prohibited to plug sensors and external modules into NetPing devices when a power supply is on!
Plug external sensors of the 1-Wire standard into the connectors at the front panel of a device:
It is possible to plug up to 8 temperature sensors and 1 humidity sensor into 4 1-Wire connectors of the device.
For example, the following picture shows connecting 3 temperature sensors and 1 humidity sensor:
All 1-Wire sensors are electrically connected in parallel and allow building a branched tree structure using splitters.
Use the next splitters and extenders to plug more than four sensors:
- 1-wire cable extender, 2m;
- 1-wire splitter, 3 sockets.
Maximum cable length 1-Wire network is limited to 50 meters.
For example, the next picture shows 3 temperature sensors plugged into one port:
