Product Description

The Advantage:

1, Create network automatically

At the first using, when DRF1600 Zigbee Module power on, the Router can search and join network automatically, after the first using, all the network point can keep this network status, no mater you turn on of turn off these points, all of them will keep in the network.

2, Very easy to use

At the most situations, two Zigbee points just as one RS232 (or UART) cable, using Zigbee Module not need driver or API.

3, Simply data transmission

The data received from UART at Coordinator can send to all point automatically.

The data received from UART at Router can send to Coordinator automatically.

Data transceiver can be at any points, just need one instruction.

How to Create a Network when using DRF1600S Zigbee Module:

The point type for Zigbee network:

There are three point type for Zigbee network: Coordinator, Router and End Device.

 

Coordinator: Used to create a Zigbee network and assign address to Router or End Device when them join this network, Coordinator used as all powered on device, at one Zigbee network only need one Coordinator, Coordinator use PAN ID to differentiate other network, the networks which have different PAN ID can’t conflict at one space.

Router: Can receive and send data, can resend data as other points bridge, Router also have keep a Zigbee network function, and Router can assign address to others points when them join this network.

Normally, Router also called as FFD (Full Function Device.

End Device: This point only can receive and send data, at most situations, this type of point defined as battery powered device, can periodically weak up to receive or send data.

 

DTK Zigbee Module’s main function is data transceiver, so our Zigbee Module only have Coordinator and Router points, when a Zigbee network include one Coordinator and n Routers, this Zigbee network normally called as MESH network, as follow:

DRF1600-N1-15

 

So, when you order Zigbee Module, we will send you 1 Coordinator and n PCS Routers as default configure.

 

To create a Zigbee network:

1, turn on the Coordinator;

2, turn on other Routers, these Router can search and join this network automatically;

To view the network structure at TI Sensor Monitor Software

1, Connect the Coordinator to PC, than run the TI Sensor Monitor, select the right COM port and click RUN, than, you will see a red point, this is Coordinator

(This software can download at:http://www.ti.com/cn/litv/zip/swrc096d)

 

DRF1600-N91-15

 

2, turn on one Router, if it’s the first use, this Router can search and join this network automatically, the two LED blink than lighting, after this, than press the TEST Key, you will see a blue point at Sensor Monitor, this is a Router point.

(at DRF1605, the TEST key is J2-PIN3 )

 

DRF1600-N92-15

 

3, same as above, turn on others Routers and press the TEST key, you will see some others Router point.

 

DRF1600-N93-15

 

How to send and receive data at different zigbee point:

 

There are two data transceiver method:transparent transceiver and point to point transceiver

 

Transparent transceiver:

The data received from UART at Coordinator, will send to all point automatically

The data received from UART at Router can send to Coordinator automatically.

 

Point to point transceiver:

Only one instruction can send data between any two points

 

Transparent transceiver(The main function for DRF1600 Zigbee Module)

1, if the fist data byte is not 0xFE, 0xFD or 0xFC, than the data package will be send as transparent data

2, the data received from UART at Coordinator, will send to all point automatically, the data received from UART at Router can send to Coordinator automatically.

3, the MAX data package length is 256 Bytes.

DRF1600-N3-15

 

Data transparent transmission performance:

 

DRF1600-N9-15

 

With the transmission distance between modules increases, the transmission rate can be decreased Coordinator to Router is sent to broadcast way to send, the transmission rate will be slow General application, suggested that each packet 32 bytes, interval 200-300ms transmission

 

Point to point transceiver:

 

Send command formats:

Data transfer instructions (0xFD) + data length + target address + data (up to 32 Bytes)

DRF1600-N5-12

Example:

 

FD 0A 14 3E 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10

FD:Data transfer instructions

0A:length,10 Bytes

14 3E:Target Address

01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10:Data

 

Received data formats:

Data transfer instructions (0xFD) + data length + target address + data (up to 32 Bytes) + Source Address

DRF1600-N6-15

Example:

 

FD 0A14 3E 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10 50 F5

FD:Data transfer instructions

0A:length,10 Bytes

14 3E:Target Address

01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 10:Data

50 F5: Source Address

 

The above introduced the data send from 50F5 to 143E, as picture

DRF1600-N4-15

Point to Point data transceiver performance:

DRF1600-N8-15

 

The target address = 0xFFFF, send data to all points, broadcast.

The target address = 0x0000, send data to Coordinator

 

 

The Setting for ZigBee Module:

 

All the data as follow is HEX format, and all setting will available after reset the module

DRF1600-N7-18

 

You also can use our setting software to seeting this ZigBee Module as:

Setting-2-12

 

 

Order Information:

There are 2 type of ZigBee point at network as Coordinator and Router. As normal, one Zigbee net work just need one Coordinator to create this network, Router can send and receive data, and also can as bridge as other point.

 

So, as recommends, if you just want to create one Zigbee network, you can select 1 Coordinator + n Routers.

 

The Package:

DRF1601-1-package

 

 

Ha, that is so easy to send and receive data between zigbee module.

    HI There,

    I would like to ask questions about the zigbee radio.
    1)can you setup by AT commands
    2)Do you have a case for zigbee.
    3)can you convert usb to Uart to use usb to serial link as well
    4)can you put high gain antenna to make distance greater
    5)Do you supply Software to setup
    6) can you sell a pair to test
    7)How many connections can you have and how does this affect bandwidth
    8)do you have manual or Instructions

    I hope to hear from you soon

    Thanks

    Chris
