Can you use the Y cable with the range finder/sonar?

Hello, I am trying to use a couple of range finders, but I don’t have enough three wire ports to use all of the range finders in, so I was wondering if I could use the Y cables with the range finder, and if so, do the input and output cords on the range finders need to go into a certain three wire entry on the y cable?

I’m pretty sure that won’t work since each wire of the sensor needs independent signaling, and a Y connector would just cause signal corruption by mixing up everyone’s signals.

What is the Y cable even for?

Driving multiple 3-wire motors from the same port.


Ok thanks, is there any way I can get more 3 wire ports?

Yes, using a 3 wire expander.
