I have a small setup which worked, consisting of the following:
- arduino with a sensor, measuring distance
- arduino sends measurement to xbee series 1, on an adafruit adapter
- receiving laptop, with another xbee series 1, on an adafruit adapter with a FTDI cable, receives the measurement, i.e. the sent data is received/seen in the minicom terminal.
Simply put, this worked fine. Until I burned one of the xbee modules. I ordered 2 new ones, but Xbee series2 this time.
I configured the series 2 according to the Chat example available on the Digi website. I configured the one on the laptop side as coordinator, the one on the arduino side as a router. So the X-CTU module allows me to communicate with the modules fine. No problem there
I replaced the old xbee modules by the new ones, and I can see the red leds on the receiving (coordinator) xbee module lighting up. So as far as I can tell data transmission is working.
Now my problem: the minicom terminal connected to the coordinator Xbee module (the one with the red led lighting up when data is received), doesnt' give any output anymore.
I don't see what can be wrong?
Any clues/help please.
thanks a lot
