XBee3 delay receiving data when destination address is 0x00....FFFF (broadcast)

0 votes

Been testing a couple of Xbee 3's that we'd like to use and I've noticed a problem with broadcast mode when in transparent mode. I'll outline the setup below:

- latest firmware on both units
- xbee1: set to controller
PAN id = 12345
DH = 0x00000000
DL = 0x0000FFFF
- xbee2: set to router
PAN ID = 12345

Test setup:
- xbee1 packet content: 1234567890
- transmit internal: 1000ms
- repeat times: 20
- start sequence

What happens:
- xbee1 sends a packet every 1s
- xbee2 initially receives the first 4-5 packets
- then it "stops" receiving packets for 5-10 seconds
- it then receives a couple of packets and then stops receiving for 5-10 seconds
- repeat above two steps until all the data is received

This is much more evident when the interval is dropped to 100ms or less. This doesn't occur if DH = SH and DL = SL of the router.

Is there a setting that I overlooked?
