Problems with two XBee modules

0 votes
Hello!

I have problems with two XBee modules.
The first one is XBP24-Z7WIT-005 revB and the second one is XBP24-BWIT-004 revD. Using X-CTU I could not communicate with neither of them.

With other two modules (XBP24-Z7UIT-004J revE and XBP24-BCIT-004 revD) and the same hardware I have no problems -- communication and firmware upload is working just fine.

I could not figure out why the first two modules do not work. If anyone has a clue I would appreciate the help.

Thank you!

Best regards,
Nikolay Groshkov

What message do you get from from the two unresponsive modules in XCTU on the PC Settings tab if you do Test/Query?

Hi!
Thank you for your reply!

On Digi web site I could not find detailed information about these modules. But here (http://www.tdata.com.au/prodpricing/prodsect.aspx?psupp=D200&pcat=220) I found a brief description about the modules I have problems with.

XBP24-Z7WIT-005 revB is an End Device working in API mode.

Test/Query with "Enable API" check box turned on gives the following:

Communication with modem..OK
Modem type = Name unknown (ID = 42949672482012318844)
Modem firmware version =

If "Enable API" is turned off then the result is "Unable to communicate with modem".

XBP24-BWIT-004 revD is a Router working in AT/Transparent mode.

Test/Query gives exactly the same result.

With other modules I don't have this issue and everything works just fine and I use them in a ZigBee-PRO application with MCUs and so on.

I was planning to change the firmware of the modules as I did for other devices and use them in the same application.

Since both modules I have problem with give the same result I doubt it is possible that they are defective. I was wondering if there is something special about these modules but I could not find any information.

Try different baud rates.
