1-Wire is a device communications bus system designed by Dallas Semiconductor Corp. that provides low-speed data, signaling, and power over a single signal.[1] 1-Wire is similar in concept to I²C, but with lower data rates and longer range. It is typically used to communicate with small inexpensive devices such as digital thermometers and weather instruments. A network of 1-Wire devices with an associated master device is called a MicroLan. Wikipedia:1-Wire

On Debian you have to install the following packages:

# sudo apt-get install owfs ow-shell

Afterwards change /etc/owfs.conf for your environment:

  • comment out server: FAKE = DS18S20,DS2405
  • uncomment/change for USB or serial devices
    • server: usb = all
    • #server: device = /dev/ttyS0

I have an USB <-> 1 wire Adapter with FT232RL & DS2480B and have to set

  • server: device = /dev/ttyUSB1
