Hi enthusiasts :D ,
I am using three Xbees which communicate with each other. One of them is a coordinator (in broadcast mode) and the other two are the end devices. The Xbee have been programmed using AT commands through X-CTU and are set to talk in the transparent mode. Initially I had only one Xbee as an end device and the data reception was fine. However, when the second Xbee was added, both Xbees still started receiving data but in an interrupted manner (i.e. the incoming data was cutting off and then reconnecting continuously).
I had two high gain antennas (one 20 dbi and one 9 dbi) on the end device Xbees and they were placed closed to each other. Could that be causing the issue? The issue would stop once one of the Xbees was disconnected.
In general, is there a limit on how many Xbee end devices I can connect with a coordinator which is broadcasting? Any ideas what was causing the problem and how this can be prevented?
Many thanks in advanced :D
