I have 4 analog signals that I am sending using two XBee S1's. Is it possible to used my 4 ADC pins on the first XBee and then send those signals to the same for ADC pins and then use those pins to simply send the analog signal to the Arduino I am using. Previously I was using a PWM output on the second XBee but with only 2 PWM pins, I was running into problems. Thank you!
Have you tried getting the ADC voltages using the Xbees in API mode?
I contacted Digi and the following is the response I got:
"Your only option is to create 2 networks consisting of 2 nodes each to achieve Line Passing of 4 analog signals."
Is this what you were getting at? Not exactly sure what this means as I do not have a ton of experience in this area. Thank you!
Do you need to use line passing?
Why not just read the digital output of the ADC?
Could I use the UART on the receiving module as the input to the Arduino?
Or do a Google search for "xbee adc tutorial".
I currently have the two XBee's communicating but the packet the coordinating XBee is receiving does not make much sense to me. Here is one example: 7E , 0 , A , 83 , 0 , 0 , 24 , 0 , 1 , 2 , 0 , 0 , 0 , 55. Some are even shorter than that. From what I am reading, I thought the packet should be longer. Anyone know what the issue likely is? Thanks!
