Hello Digi Forum!
So this is my problem:
I am apsolute beginner,and a noob..
I bought two XBee 868LP for Europe modules (XB8-DMUS 002 revG).
Hoping i can connect them directly to two Arduino UNO-s.
And create a simple one way comunication over 1500m in LOS ;
One XBee/Uno send simple potentiometer readout, and the other XBee/Uno
lisens, and move stepp motor accordingly. From what i understand this is called "Transparent mode".
Ok, from what i see , first i must program modules in XCTU software on PC,
but i dont own Dev. Board !
My trouble is how to properly connect Xbee-s (XB8-DMUS 002 revG) to PC witout harming them.
I have read all on forum first, and what i foud out is: 3. ways:
And on Arduino i need to place a jump wire between reset pin and GND.
2.Way using FTDI232 module, but am not sure how to properly do that either.
3.Using just USB wire: To program the firmware on an XBee the six pins of the FTDI cable
should be connected as follows:
1 (Black) - pin 10 ground
2 (Brown) - pin 12 cts
3 (Red) - This is 5V VCC even on the 3.3V cable. If you want to power the module from this cable you will need to adapt this power level down to 3.3V. (VCC will go to pin 1 but be careful to have the correct voltage.)
4 (Orange) - pin 3 tx to din
5 (Yellow) - pin 2 rx to dout
6 (Green) - pin 16 rts
But it does not apply to this Xbee.
on this XB pin goes:
Please i need help, and i dont what to burn the little XBee-s..
Thank you for your support, Merry Christmas & happy new year !
And sorry for long post
