Can bolt iot take load of four proximity sensors?


#1

I want to connect four proximity sensors to bolt. can it take the load or the it may get hurt internally? each proximity sensor is operating on 5v.

It should work fine with 4 sensors too. You may use Digital Multi read function for better connectivity.


#3

actually it is working fine. But once my bolt has been damaged already, i have to replace it, don’t know if it was because of the load of 4 sensors or anything else, so i am afraid.

Hi,

I would recommend using and external power source four supplying Vcc and Gnd to the 4 sensors, as the regulator present on Bolt may get overloaded by the current drawn by the sensors.
