ZigBee Send Data example for mbed XBeeLib By Digi

Dependencies:   XBeeLib mbed


This example shows how to send data to a remote XBeeZB module. The application creates a message for a remote XBee module. This library encodes and sends it to the local XBee module through the serial port. Then the local XBee module sends the packet to the remote XBee module through the air.

The example shows how to send both unicast and broadcast messages. It also shows how to send messages to the network coordinator.

See Sending data to another module chapter for more information.

Common Setup

Make sure you have a valid Example Common Setup

Example Setup


Broadcast messages and messages to the coordinator don't require any configuration, but for unicast messages to a specific node you have to configure the remote device 64-bit address by customizing the REMOTE_NODE_ADDR64_MSB and REMOTE_NODE_ADDR64_LSB defines with the remote XBee module 64-bit address.

Running the example

Build and deploy the example to the mbed module.
Reset the mbed module so the example starts. You should see the example debug information through the debug interface configured in the 'Local Setup' chapter. Once joined to the coordinator, the application will first send a message to the coordinator, then a broadcast message and finally a couple of unicast messages to the configured remote XBee module.

Verify that the remote XBee module is receiving the frames by accessing the "Console" tab of the X-CTU. You should see there the broadcast and unicast messages. If the remote XBee module is also the network coordinator, you should see there also the message sent to the coordinator.
