» 868 04a: Send broadcast

This program shows how to send packets with XBee-868 modules. Broadcast address (0x000000000000FFFF) is specified as destination address

Required Materials

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

Notes

- This example belongs to a two-code example. This is the sending part.
- Both XBee modules must be configured with the same network parameters (PANID and encryption mode)
- This example can be executed in Waspmote v12 and Waspmote v15
