Hello, I am currently doing a project in which I am using MLX90640 sensors to create a heatmap of an area. I can already read out a sensor and create a thermal image. However to keep the cost down I would like to connect multiple sensors to the same arduino. To do this the sensor would probably be at a maximum of 5 meters from the arduino.
Online I have read that it is possible to create a i2c connection over longer distance using either a cat5 cable or a CAN bus cable. I was wondering what you would advise for connections over a longer distance.
Thanks in advance!
