I'm working on a school project and I need communication between two Arduino microcontroller. I selected two Xbee digimesh pro 900 s3b, because the Arduino will be separated by at least 15km LOS.
I have some problem getting X-CTU software communicating with the XBee module via Arduino Uno. Here's the wiring I made between the Arduino and XBee:
PIN 1 of XBee (VCC) to 3.3V of Arduino
PIN 2 of XBee to TX of Arduino
PIN 3 of XBee to Rx of Arduino
PIN 10 of XBee (ground) to arduino's ground
When I try to detect the XBee with X-CTU, I always get the message to reset the XBee radio, so I connect and disconnet PIN 5 of Xbee to ground. However, after minutes, nothing happens...
I downloaded the next-gen of X-CTU and the last-old version and I tried the same procedure with both and I get the same result. I also downloaded Firmware for this specific XBee and tried different baud rate without any difference...
Any idea if Arduino can be used with s3b and/or digimesh and/or pro Xbee module or if the problem occur between X-CTU and Arduino.
Any idea will be very helpful
