In order to learn how to get external power to work with my DS18B20’s I needed some way to be able to do quick connections between all the parts and different configurations.  So I determined the best thing to do is was to  build a power supply brick.  This way I will have it built and can use it in my other sensor work and on future projects.  This will allow me to quickly hook things up with out having to re-invent a way to get power to the projects, just pull out my brick connect up and  I am ready to go.

Here are the parts and tools I used:

Brick pad - drill bit - N size jack - plastic - terminal

Putting it together:

Need to connect up the wires:

Of course ” TEST EVERYTHING” —-

Great blog.
How do you connect your DS18B20? I’m working on DS18B20 but not yet tested working using external power supply. Can you please send me the link.
