Good day forum.
I am currently in a project that needs to read temperature values from sensors placed fairly far away. Our initial test worked well with CAT5 cable less than 50meters, but any more and the circuit crashes and we cant detect the sensors. The sensors use One-wire protocol to communicate and i am using the standard provided library and circuit(4k7 pull to 5V).
I believe we are gonna require the network driver that Maxim recommends for complex/long one-wire configurations, but there is no code example. They do provide a flow diagram, but I was wondering if there wasnt a completed example/code for the driver already? Surely im not the only person that requires this driver/code for long runs of CAT5 one-wire?
Any help or suggestions on Long one-wire busses would be appreciated! **ps: I have read all of the app notes from Maxim
