Multiple 1-wire sensors on same bus?

Hej team,

I'm building a small controller that will work with multiple 1-wire temperature sensors.
I've added a PLC channel in Mervis, and is able to find 4 of 4 sensors. But only able to attach one of them.
I thought that I just needed to repeat the process 4 times, but every time I select one sensor that's not matched yet, it replaces the one from before.

Can you please give me some pointers on how to attach all my OneWire sensors?

thanks

Morten:)

Hello,

attach is used once you have the sensor added to the channel (also for replacing sensors).

If you want to add more sensors you can use two ways:
    automatic - Right click on 1Wire channel -> Detect One Wire Sensors and select what sensors you want to add
    manual - Right click on 1Wire channel -> Add library device -> UniPi -> OneWire -> 1W thermometer + than you need to attach the sensor as you did (or fill in the address, family, crc,... in the properties manually).

Remember, detecting/assigning new sensors must be made when the PLC is in COMMISIONING mode.
