I have installed a new version of the 1-wire extension board and it is functioning quite well. I decided to improve it slightly and add a few resistors. It is smaller and fits into a 2-module DIN case. Here are the boards:
The left board is the main one. It has the DS2482 chip and distributes 3 1-wire channels. The rest is left for a further use via a pin plug. The right board is and extention, which can be mounted on the 2nd level of the case. All that it does is distributing the remaining 5 channels of the 1-wire network.
Here are the ready boards:
The davice can easily function as the one-main board. 3 channels is quite enough for the majority of uses. If the need arises to use more - the 2nd extension board can be connected with ease.
