Hello to everyone, I have seen that there are a lot of topics about the arduino xbee shield and the xbee communication but I cant find some question that maybe you can answer me faster.
My idea is build a xbee network with and arduino coordinator connect to a PC a some (more than 1) arduino end device nodes, so I need an API mode communication. Well first of all I have tried to connect only 2 Arduinos (master and slave) so with the digi X-CTU software I have tried to configure them. The model of all my arduinos is XB24 and the firmware is 10E6. When I try to configure them (mode configuration) I have only 4 function set (xbee 802.15.4, xbee 802.15.4 analog IO adapter, xbee 802.15.4 digital IO adapter and xbee 802.15.4 RS232 power harvester)
the first of my question: wich option is te best for the master and the slave of my network? If I try to read the modem parameters and firmware it fail (Failed to enter command mode, Unable to read version (ATVR) Read parameters failed). How with the X-CTU sw I cant do anything I configure myself the 2 Arduinos as next:
Coordinator - AP= 1 (or 2 with scape character) - CE=1 - PAN ID= same as default 3332 - CH= C - DH= 0 - DL=0xFFFF (for broadcast) End device - AP= 1 (or 2 with scape character) - CE= 0 - PAN ID= Same as coordinator (3332) - CH= same as coordinator (C) - DH= Coordinator's SH - DL= Coordinator's SL - MY= Same number as COM port assigned in PC (in example 4)
With this configuration I try the series1_tx and series1-rx examples (xbee library) and its seem that the message is sent from the end device (it contains as payload a simply "hello world", with a terminal I cant see the msg from the end device) but the coordinator dont receive any message (I work with the led 13, but it never blink)
It's possible that I dont have a good parameters configuration?
thanks for all your help
