I have been building a onewire temperature sensing setup for our grain bins on the farm using DS18B20 sensors. Most of the time I can nicely read a 10 or 13 sensor string with a sensor spacing of 3' (30' - 39') plus wire running up the side of the grain bin which more than doubles the total length. Most of my onewire busses actually daisy chain two bins together in a short multidrop type bus. Like I said, most of the time it works quite well, but occasionally it works like crap.
Now I have been driving the onewire line directly with the Arduino but I now have received a few DS2480B serial to onewire driver chips and I'd like to try them with the arduino to see if a proper line driver helps any. I found an Arduino library for the DS2482s series (I2C) but has anyone used the DS2480B? I guess I should broaden my search to include any example code as serial data is serial data regards whether it's an arduino or whatever. If there's already any library out there I'd appreciate hearing about it.
