Hello,

is it possible to have 2 "1 Wire Pi Plus" boards (of cource, with different i2c addresses) installed on Raspberry Pi?

For example, for connection 2 separate 1-wire networks into one owfs ?

Hello

You can stack two 1 Wire Plus boards on a Raspberry Pi.  OWFS will detect both of the boards and allow you to connect to devices on both 1 Wire networks.

The only issue you may find with stacking two of the boards directly on top of each other is the plastic tabs on the RJ12 socket protrude out of the bottom of the board and will make them too tall to use our mounting kits properly.  One solution to that would be to trim the tabs off of the connector to reduce its height but this will mean it is not secured to the PCB so you may need to add a bit of glue to keep it from coming loose.
