I would like to develop a movable coordinator. I got a router and 5 End Devices in a Network. The router is configured with JV = 0x00, so I can take away my coordinator and my battery-powerded Sleepy End Devices can talk to the router respectively they consuming less Energy. In this case I could call the router the “contact-person” if the coordinator is away. I have to take away the coordinator because I’ve another place with a router and 6 End Devices. This network has to talk to the PLC which is connected to the coordinator, too. It isn’t meaningful to setup a second PLC with a second coordinator because of the high price for the PLC. Furthermore if the first Network is used the second isn’t used and vice versa.
I hope you understand my problem. So the question is, how can I ensure that the coordinator always starts with the same configuration that the router (respectively end devices) in each network can talk to it.
I set up:
- PAN ID with a non-zero value
- Channel Mask to a non-variable Channel
- does the value OI (operating 16-Bit PAN ID) changes every time I power up my coordinator?
I use the ZigBee Pro Feature Set.
Thank you for help
