Features and Benefits
- Simple, low-cost metal stampings form a read/write probe for the iButton family
- Probe guides the entry of the iButton
- iButton slides over the surface to self-clean contacts
- Accessible shallow probe cavity simplifies removal of debris such as mud
- Flexible design supports panel-mount or hand-grip mount with optional tactile feedback
- Bright tarnish-resistant metal surface provides millions of operations
- Panel-mount probe, prewired for easy installation
- Hand-grip probe mates to RJ-11 jack for quick installation
The DS9092 iButton® probe provides the electrical contact necessary for the transfer of data to and from the DS19xx family of iButtons. The round probe shape provides a self-aligning interface that readily matches the circular rim of the iButton's MicroCan package. Metal contacts resist wear and are easy to keep clean.
The DS9092 is available with a flat faceplate (standard) or with optional tactile feedback. The center contact of the standard reader has no moving parts, making this a more rugged interface for harsh environments. This type of probe is best suited for designs where the iButton is brought into contact with the reader.
The tactile feedback probe is ideal for situations where the iButton is stationary and the movable reader is brought in contact with it.
Both types of probes are available in a panel-mount version. The tactile feedback probe is also available in a grip-mount version. The panel-mount probes are fastened behind the panel with a push-on type spring-nut.
The two 15cm 22AWG wires are provided for easy connection to the system microcontroller. The handgrip mount probe comes attached to a 10cm handle and 1m cable which is terminated with an RJ-11 jack.

The DS9092K iButton® Starter Kit provides the basic hardware for a quick evaluation of the Maxim iButton family of products that communicate using the 1-Wire® protocol. The kit uses the USB port of a Microsoft Windows®-based Personal Computer running Vista™, XP SP2 (or higher), or Microsoft Server Operating Systems Windows 2003 or 2008. The kit includes several iButtons as well as an assortment of accessories. The easy setup process includes the free download of 1-Wire drivers and the OneWireViewer demonstration software to easily communicate with iButtons through the PC’s USB port. The download site for the free 1-Wire drivers and bundled OneWireViewer is found at:
For software developers who wish to create custom iButton applications, Maxim provides documentation and a free library of source code examples at http://www.maximintegrated.com/products/ibutton-one-wire/ibutton.html under the Software Development Kits link. Please check our website regularly for software updates.
To evaluate plastic-packaged 1-Wire devices instead of the iButton form factor, use the DS9090K instead of the DS9092K.
