For those of you frustrated with Digi's X-CTU Xbee configuration software, there's now an alternative. Massimo Banzi, the Arduino team leader (who I'm having dinner with tonight in Rome!), reports:
Italian company “moltosenso” has released a free, cross-platform software that allows you to configure all the parameters of your XBee modules.
From the website:moltosenso Network Manager™ IRON is the cross-platform answer for the users of Digi International® X-CTU™.The same functionalities are now available on Microsoft Windows®, Linux® and Mac OS X™ operating systems.
Thanks to a snappy and totally free GUI, moltosenso Network Manager™ IRON is able to grant:
- get/set of the parameters of Digi International® modules plugged to the PC, both in API and AT mode;
- get/set of the parameters of Digi International® modules remotely addressable;
- an effective graphic test for RSSI parameter, especially tailored for XBEE™ modules;
- firmware upload (local and – where available – remote) for many supported Digi International® modules.
