REQ: SHT31 - Address change on SKU:SEN0385, multiple sensor on single board

Hello,

I haven't found anything related to it....

I have this SHT31 sensor and found this guide https://wiki.dfrobot.com/SHT31_Temperat ... KU_SEN0385

My problem is that i have no clue how to change 0x44 address to 0x45.
They say in the code:
* @n When the ADR is connected to VDD, the chip I2C address is 0x45.
* @n When the ADR is connected to GND, the chip I2C address is 0x44.

1. But when i opened it and removed plastic sealing i see only this...so i assume it cant be changed easily :(
see pics

2. I have also other type of SHT31 sensors , where i should bridge 2 connections in order to change address, but not sure which ones. Haven't found any guide to that...

3. How to solve if i would like to use 3-4x SHT31 sensor in my project? on Cable length around 4 meters each.
As i want to replace DHT22 which are becoming faulty after few weeks, but they were easy to add on PINs without limitations

On since i2C i can add 2x SHT31 (if ill be able to change address) , but how to manage others? (im using also LCD on i2C)

I read about software i2C but not sure how reliable is it.
Also Multiplexer - here might be possible that ill could connect it on 2m long cable and this way i could have 4x 2m sensor on it. But again not sure about stability...

Any tips would be appreciated , thanks!

These products of yours do not have pins that can change the IIC address.

You can see this kind of products in our wiki, we will all lead out the pins if you can change the IIC address. I don’t know what the AD and AL pins of the purple product mean, after all, I don’t have any information about it.
