802.15.4 Wireless Modem
802.15.4 Modem make Wireless Control EASY
Plug In, Open the COM Port and Start Sending Commands
Wireless Control is as Easy as Talking to a USB Port on Your Computer!
Communicating with a Wireless Device does NOT have to be complicated. Our line of 802.15.4 modems allow first time users to communicate with ANY 802.15.4 device, even if it was not manufactured by us!!!
Here's how it works
Plug the 802.15.4 Modem into your computer and install the drivers. The 802.15.4 modem will mount as a COM port on your PC. Next, talk to the COM port as though you were communicating with a RS-232 serial device that is directly connected to your PC. That's all there is to it!!!
802.15.4 Modems offer wireless 2-way communications, compatible with any 802.15.4 device or network. This device is Powered by the USB Port. The includes USB Cable and Enclosure.
Networking 802.15.4 Devices
It is possible to speak to many 802.15.4 devices within a local area. Each 802.15.4 device is hard coded with a device ID number. The device ID number is printed on the bottom side of the 802.15.4 module. This 802.15.4 module can be easily removed. You can also query all 802.15.4 modules to determine all device ID numbers within range. The 802.15.4 protocol is extensive, and will not be covered in any NCD documentation. Instead, we will focus our documentation on sending commands to remote devices that support the 802.15.4 protocol. In other words, we will show you how to talk to our devices for controlling relays and reading data. If you wish to learn about the extensive features of the 802.15.4 protocol (also known as 802.15.4), this documentation can be downloaded from the MaxStream web site by clicking here. We highly suggest reading this documentation as it has more information on speaking to several different 802.15.4 devices and hopping commands across wireless networks.
Both USB and 802.15.4 modules offer 100% emulation of a COM port and offer a completely transparent communication layer. We have chosen these communication methods because we believe they offer the best compatibility and quickest implementation time.
