The problem is you are using the Series 1 code.  Here's the Series 2 sketch http://code.google.com/p/xbee-arduino/source/browse/trunk/examples/ZBTxExample/ZBTxExample.pde

and API documentation:

You have the right idea but you should be doing the scaling in the Arduino sketch, not the Java code.

Couldn't you just multiple the values by 16 in the sketch to scale to 12-bit?  You wouldn't need to mess with the Java code or the communication.

Hi All,

I recently posted the code to my latest Arduino project.  This is a interactive color gradient that allows you to control the color of your RGB LED, via the Arduino.  You can find a description of the application and related code on my blog http://rapplogic.blogspot.com/

I haven't done extensive testing but I think both series 1 and 2 will report an ACK delivery in about 50-150ms.  This depends on packet size, signal strength etc.  Where did you get 10x from?

I don't know what to call this thing but it's an Arduino/LCD/XBee that can display weather or really any type of information that fits on a 4x20 LCD (soon to support paging).  It uses XBee packet mode for tx/rx of data and talks to a Java service.  Right now it supports current weather/forecast but it can be extended to support other services and also at as a controller to do things like itunes-next-track etc.

Not exactly Arduino news, but hopefully still relevant.. I have released a Java XBee API on Google Code http://code.google.com/p/xbee-api/
It supports both Series 1 and Series 2 XBee radios, configured in API mode (AP=2).  Since it's written in Java, it runs on a variety of platforms (Win/Mac/Linux) and there are even a few different language options: Python (Jython), Ruby (JRuby) etc.

I'm aware of a usb memory stick logger solution for the Arduino.  Is this different from what you are proposing?

Use the reset pin.  Ground it and release just before you hit write.  Make sure AP, escape chars, baud rate and flow control are set correctly.

Very nice job on the tutorial.  What kind of camera did you use for the photos?  They're excellent!  Could you provide a photo of everything wired up?  I will need to get some ZNet radios to try this out; currently I just have a few XBee Pros.

OK, I finished creating a tutorial for setting up a point-to-point network with two XBee ZNet modules. I put all the information into a PDF which I'm currently providing from my university's web space; I'll put the PDF somewhere else as soon as I can find a better place to host it.

Hope that helps. I'd appreciate any feedback on the tutorial (mistakes or anything that is unclear).

@rappa: thanks for that tip. I can't load that link for some reason, but I'll try hooking up the XBee that way and see if the firmware upgrade works.

@mbj5003: I made a quick drawing of how to connect an XBee module to the FT232 Breakout Board from Sparkfun so that you can upgrade the firmware using the X-CTU software from Digi. I don't have my electronics in front of me so I can't verify the drawing, but I'll check it when I get home tonight. Maybe later I can write a short tutorial for how to set-up and use the XBee ZNet (Series 2) modules with Arduino if that would be helpful.

Nice drawing!  How did you create that?  A tutorial would be great.  Thanks.

According to these guys http://six.media.mit.edu:8080/6/development/daughterboards/xbee-daughterboard  It seems that you could flash your XBee in an Arduino if you connect the following pins:

RTS => 3.3 V
CTR => GND

but I haven't tried yet.

I figured out the solution is to turn on serial in the setup function: Serial.begin(9600)
This is necessary even if you are not using serial at all, as was my case.
74  Forum 2005-2010 (read only) / Frequently-Asked Questions / XBee Shield + I/O Line passing on: March 26, 2008, 01:00:33 pm
I have a Arduino + XBee shield that is sending data to a base XBee through the XBee I/O line passing configuration.  It works if the shield jumpers are in the USB position, but if I put them in the XBee position, it sends one packet and nothing more.  The problem is that when the jumpers are in the USB position, the Arduino can't communicate with the XBee.  I was hoping to be able to run Arduino code and communicate with XBee, while the XBee is sending I/O samples but it appears this is not possible or I am missing something.  Any ideas?  Thanks

I just received two of them in the mail and both had two 6 pin female connectors included.
 smiley

The 6 pins are to expose the Arduino I/O; the XBee requires 2* 10 pin
