It is time to connect the DS18B20 temperature probe to a CAT 5 cable. This will allow me to create a BUS for as many temperature probes as I need for my aquaponic units.
Temp Probe ——– CAT 5
RED ===== BLUE
YELLOW ===== ORANGE
BLACK ===== BROWN
Only thing left to do now is add shrink tubing to the connection between the probe and cable and place a RJ45 connector to the end of the CAT 5 cable. Now it is possible to make my probes as long as I want and have a standard way to connect the probes to an arduino for reporting temperatures.
Make sure to test the probe and connections and make sure the probe is working correctly.
