Replacement for DS9097 - DS9490 or Ilink?

I am in the process of replacing my second DS9097U and looking at what people have found to be effective.

  • Dallas USB/1-wire (DS9490)

  • ibutton ILINK (serial)

Any one have some experience on these?

ilink adapter works for me .
Has worked on my network ( where the DS9097U failed )
All depends on how you network is wired . Ideally all chips should be wired across the data & gnd lines one after the other ( don’t have any spur lines with chips connected )

I don’t know if I understand what you mean by spur lines etc. Can you explain a bit?
