» 868 01: Configure XBee

This program shows how to set the basic networking parameters to a XBee module.

Required Materials

1 x Waspmote
1 x Battery
1 x MiniUSB wire
1 x XBee-868

Notes

- The XBee module must be configured to the default baud rate (BD=7) and AP parameter (AP=2).
- To store parameter changes after power cycles, it is needed to execute the "writeValues" function. If not, when the XBee is powered off, values do not remain in the module's memory.
- This example can be executed in Waspmote v12 and Waspmote v15
