I’ve been working with some DM XBees and first of all I want to let you know that there is a API well documented for Java that was made for ZB but it works just fine for at least basic send and recieve / configure stuff. I haven’t tried the rest.
Now I’m making a firmware for a microcontroller to use API mode 2 and I want that everytime I send a message the XBee don’t respond with a Transmit Status.
I thought that setting the Transmit Options byte (16) in the TX Request frame would do but it doesn’t.
I’ve used it with ZB modules and it works well. I should have read this thread before posting my own one about reading analog values. For example does the ZNetRxIoSampleResponse class work with Digimesh modules?
As I said before I haven’t work with all the functionality that the XBees provide like the I/O and analog ports in the XBee because I use it only to communicate to a better MCU.
So I haven’t tried the ZNetRxIoSampleResponse class , I didn’t know about your API until yesterday if not I would’ve tried.
I still have a problem with Rapp’s API and is that the transmition speed is slow compared to what Digi claims this modules are capable of. Some other users of the API have agreed with me on this so if I need some more transfer speed I’ll try your API.
I haven’t looked much into that API but there could be a potential issue depending on how the code was written and what lines you are actually sampling. The bit-mask of the DigiMesh module and the ZigBee module are very similar, but there is a difference or two in the number of IO lines that are available. Since this could change, you may need to modify the ZigBee API slightly to handle the difference in the IO sample bit-mask. Otherwise however, they should be in the same format.
