Waspmote Gateway, USB, ZigBee XBee PRO, 5 dBi Antenna US$366.00

Waspmote Gateway, USB, ZigBee XBee PRO, 5 dBi Antenna

Waspmote Gateway ZB PRO SMA 5 DBI

This device allows you to collect data which flows through a Waspmote sensor network into a PC or other device with a standard USB port. The Waspmote Gateway will act as a data bridge or access point between the sensor network and the receiving equipment. The receiving equipment will be responsible for storing and using the data received depending on the specific needs of the application.

The receiving equipment can be a PC with Linux, Windows or Mac OS, or any device compatible with standard USB connectivity. The gateway offers a USB A plug connector, so the receiving device must have a USB A receptacle.

Once the gateway has been installed correctly, a new communication serial port connecting directly to the XBee module's UART appears in the receiving equipment. This will allow the XBee to communicate directly with the device, being able to both receive data packets from the sensor network as well as modify and/or consult the XBee's configuration parameters.

Another important function worth pointing out is the possibility of updating or changing the XBee module's firmware.

The Waspmote Gateway ships with the XBee module and antenna as shown. This version includes the XBP24-BSIT-004 ZigBee Series 2.5 XBee PRO module with RP-SMA connector. This module has reached its end of life, so only will be supplied while stock lasts. Its firmware can be updated to make it compatible with the replacement XBP24BZ7SIT-004 ZB S2B module.

A compatible Waspmote core board example would be the WZBP-SMA5.

Waspmote Gateway Features


Four indicator LEDs are included on the Gateway:
  • PWR indicates that the board is powered through the USB port
  • RX indicates that the board is receiving data from the USB port
  • TX indicates that the board is sending data to the USB port
  • I/O5 configurable LED (see below)
The I/O5 LED connected to the XBee's I/O pin 5 can be configured either as the XBee's digital output or as the XBee's indicator of association to the sensor network.


Four buttons are included on the Gateway:
  • RST allows the XBee module to be reset
  • I/O-0 connected to the XBee's I/O pin 0
  • I/O-1 connected to the XBee's I/O pin 1
  • RTS-6 connected to the XBee's I/O pin 6
All the buttons connect each one of its corresponding data lines with GND when pressed. None of these has pull-up resistance, so it may be necessary to activate any of the XBee's internal pull-up resistances depending on the required use.

Waspmote Overview

Waspmote is an open-source wireless sensor platform specially focused on the implementation of low-consumption modes which allows the sensor nodes ("motes") to be completely autonomous, i.e. battery powered. The life span of Waspmote sensor nodes may range from 1 to 5 years depending on the duty cycle and the radio used. The system is programmed through a custom Arduino-based IDE.

Waspmote is based on a modular architecture. The idea is to integrate only the modules needed in each device, optimizing costs. For this reason, all the modules (radios, sensor boards, etc.) plug into Waspmote through sockets. Every combination of Waspmote wireless hardware has FCC, CE and IC radio certifications, allowing you to deploy your device with minimal fuss.

Please see our Waspmote Category for a list of main Waspmote boards and starter kits, and see its subcategories for individual sensor modules or other accessories.
