Xbee3 802.15.4 - problem - I'm migrating to XBEE3.

+1 vote
I already use the XBEE S1 and S2 module in my product, I'm migrating to XBEE3.
With the XBEE S1 / S2 modules, everything works fine.
In XBEE3 with the UART firmware 802.15.4, either it works for a while and stops, or when you turn it off and on again it stops working. Are there configurations that can solve this problem?

Good morning,
I'm also having a problem with S3 module.
Our configuration is half duplex communication in a broadcast way of work.
It works for approx one hours then the XBEE 3 module seems to stop. Sometimes, even a hard reset is not enough to make it work again.
I have test my system with S2 modules.
Is there a solution to fix this problem ?

I am having the same trouble. No issues with the S1, but the XBee3 module locks up and I have to cycle the power to fix it. It seems to be something with the message format or timing. I can send much larger packets faster using a protocol analyzer and it works fine. I'm using the international version of the XBee3 and the Pro version of the S1.

I'm having similar issue with XSTICK1 and XBEE3 with 802.15.4 firmware. No issues with S1 and XSTICK1

Good morning,
I have tested my system with XBEE PRO V2 (still in 802.15.4 mode) and I don't have my previous problem anymore.
The XBEE PRO 3 in 802.15.4 mode really seems to be bugged.

same problem... on 802.15.4 mode. Work fine with S1 pro and S2 also.
But S3 seem to stop transmitting after a while ( random time). A power on/off solve the problem for a while, also a hardware reset on the reset pin. But nothing else reset the device. I have revision 2006. I try upgrade to 200A, no difference.
This is very concerning... and no answer from DIGIT!
