question about how to wire up one-wire sensor

The Terminal Shield breaks out all the Arduino headers to handy screw terminals, making it really easy to connect external wires without using a soldering iron. Ideal for quick experiments or for robust connections. [Product page]

question about how to wire up one-wire sensor

Post by beno » Wed Dec 05, 2012 4:35 am

I bought this terminal shield to connect a sensor using CAT5E and would like the 3 wires from my sensor to use the screw terminals so they can be detached easily without soldering.
The sensor needs a resistor between it and the 5V power. Its easier to see what I'm trying to do with the attached image. How to do this using the terminal shield?
Thanks

Good point, I hadn't thought of that. There is actually 3 sensors though.
I have improvised by getting some stackable header pins and cutting off pin D13 so that terminal point isn't connected to the actual D13.
