Identifying DS18B20 sensors


Pflug
 Share

Question

Hi.

 

All DS18B20 all have unique IDs.

Is there a way to see/read out that ID somewhere?

 

...or is there another way to identify which sensor is which??

"without touching or heating/cooling a specific sensor and monitoring the temperature?"

I  can not physically get to the sensors which are embedded in the floor!

 

Any suggestions are welcome

Thanks

Jurgen

  • Just in case someone else if wondering, here is the official answer from Fibaro support:

    It is NOT possible to identify the sensors,

    "without touching or heating/cooling a specific sensor and monitoring the temperature"

    Hi Jürgen,
    I spoke with UBS’s constructor, unfortunately there is no other way to identify specific Dallas temperature sensor than holding it in hands for a couple of seconds and recognize temperature changes.
    I’m sorry I don’t have better news.

    Hi Jürgen,
    You are right, the problem is, that producer doesn’t mark the IDs. The procedure for UBS is:

    - UBS is scanning for IDs,
    - UBS is saving IDs (it is happening randomly),
    - UBS is reading it from the endpoint.

    As you can see, the whole identification takes place after adding UBS with Dallas to the system.

    I’m sorry I don’t have better news.
