When I open a XBee device in XCTU, it displays a product family string in the firmware information (such as XBP24BZ7). I am wondering if there is a way to query the XBee using an AT command request to obtain the product family.
The reason I am wanting this is because I’m using a microcontroller with an XBee to send and receive API Tx and Rx packets; however, I sometimes switch out the XBee with one from a different product family. The microprocessor needs to know the product family of the XBee in order to know which API Tx packet to use (such as a 0x00 Tx packet or a 0x10 Tx packet). Perhaps there is another way to go about automatically determining which API packets are supported by the XBee that I’m using, so I’m open to other suggestions.
