1-Wire 8 port hub, switched star topology
I have to use star network topology due to the local conditions in my installation. Unfortunately the lines are long and with different lengths. I use several 1-Wire temperature sensors (DS18B20) witch works fine individually but not with together.
So, I have to use switched network for for reliability.
My question is: The 1-Wire 8 port hub is a active (switching hub)? Is it suitable for me?
(The 1-wire master is from different manufacturer).
Thanks in advance,
in short - the 1-Wire hub is passive device, which helps with the "linearization" of the star topology. You can find complete information about 1-Wire here: https://kb.unipi.technology/en:automation:02-glossary:1wire-hidden
