I need to communicate with several sensors using the I2C protocole, using 2 I/O digital pins for each sensor (been using a multiplexor with success with Labjack units before but here I need the simplest and quickest way to make my test). Could you confirm these 2 points :


-U3 would be the cheapest solution among the Labjack units

-one U3 unit will enable me to communicate with 10 sensors (20 DIO  / 2 ) 


Thank you very much,

I agree.  The U3-LV is our lowest cost device, and it will allow you to talk to 10 sensors using individual SDA/SCL lines for each.  If the sensors have or can have different addresses, you can connect multiple to the same SDA/SCL lines and thus do many more than 10.

You are correct. I forgot to say I didn't want to have to change the sensors adress's.


Thanks you very much for your quick answer.
