RfBee standalone power by battery

Hi, i am trying a breadboard deployment of RFBee with battery power.For this purpose I am using 2 x AA bateries and Sure Electronics power boost board (successfully getting 3.3V out) Same thing is alternatively connected to FTDI USB board - for programming purposes. Here are few strange things that ...

Re: rfbee and I2C (BMP085 sensor)

HI, here is update not that i managed to test it more thoroughly. When using BMO085 with RFBee as plain arduino all works OK. i can get the data with pretty basic sketch (see below). But when RFBee firmware is loaded the code gets stuck after bmp.begin() is it a case that firmware is initiating i2c ...

Re: rfbee and I2C (BMP085 sensor)

HI, If I understood correctly If you are using RFBee on XBeeCarrier board then you need to turn on mosfet (drive A2 low) But in this case I have xBee on the breadboard (raw deployment) connecting directly to BMP085 sensor. I cannot get this to work (BMP085 works on Arduino Uno Pin4 and Pin5 connecte...

Re: rfbee and I2C (BMP085 sensor)

Thanx for feedback
Will try it later.

What in the case that you want to make standalone deployment. Is it the same case ?

rfbee and I2C (BMP085 sensor)

I am trying to interface RFBEe with BMP085 barometric and temp sensor. I found in the docs that PC4 and PC5 are I20 SDA and SCL ports. but when connecting this to BMP085 I am not getting any data (same BMP085 works on regular arduino uno). ist here anything else that needs to be active in order for ...

Re: panStamp on RFBee

HI,

I managed to get modem node up and running.
But XBee Carrier with and DHT22 sensor using the original temphumpress simply does not work.
No output on serial port and no traffic detected on modem node

Any help in making this work would be greatly appreciated.

Thanx,
DiNo

RFBee sleep mode on XBee carrier

Anyone can share a sketch where RFBee is put in sleep mode for 60 seconds or so on XBee carrier board. I would like following scenario. 1) RFBee boots up 2) it sends sensor reading (DHT22) 3) it goes to sleep for 60 seconds 4) goes to 2) Also is there a possibility to power off DHT22 (connected to D...

Grove Moisture Sensor - power usage

Hi, since sensor is connected to power source constatntly is it drawing any power when not used (trigered by analogpin read). If it is drawing power would it make sense to conenct +5v to separate arduino pin and power pin before readouts. I also see that readouts can show rather big oscilations (eve...
