Topic: Will the signal strength of XBee be improved by adding one more XBee module (Read 98 times) previous topic - next topic

Hi, dear people,
I have a question to ask you.
A router of XBee transmit data to a coordinator of Xbee over the distance of 50 m. Then RSSI of the XBee router1 can be measured. If I add one more XBee router2 into the middle between XBee router1 and Coordinator. The XBee router2 also transmit the data to the same XBee coordinator. Under this condition, will the RSSI of XBee router1 be improved? Or the addition of the XBee module into the same network will not affect other XBee's RSSI?
Thank you in advance.
Best

If the data comes to the coordinator via router 2, you can not measure the signal strength of the signal from router 1. The signal strength that you measure is that of the nearest/strongest router.

The Router1 and Router2 transmit data to the coordinator independently.

End devices send data to the nearest thing that can provide a link to the coordinator. If there are nothing but end devices, then no routing happens. You can NOT control the path of data if there are routers. If the path from device 1 to the coordinator is better by going through device 2 which is a router, then that WILL happen, and all that the coordinator will know, in terms of signal strength, is that it got data from router 2.
