I'm currently using the expansion port from the IND.I/O to collect temperature measurements from a couple of 1-wire DS18B20 probes and its working great. I'll need to connect many probes on the same bus, maybe about 10-20. Is there any problem in having them all draw current from the 5v output pin in the expansion port?
