Since I have a larger number of sensors in each tower unit I needed a way to know the exact sensor I will be dealing with and the location of the sensor. The best way for me is to mimic the electronic color codes found on resistors. Why reinvent things if I don’t have to. So here is how I solved this problems.
So let now see how this works out —
Temp Probes are – BLUE color
Water Probes are – YELLOW color
Start the code at the Sensor position and work into the inter-core
These patterns are repeated on both ends of the cable with the outer most position being the sensor color. So if you held the two ends up together with the connectors facing the same direction then the code would mirror each other.
