Re: Driver for APC220 Wireless Module

Wed Feb 01, 2012 2:53 pm

Hi guys,

Someone knows if raspberry B got driver for apc220 wireless module connected by usb TTL adapter? (Maybe i need the USB TTL/UART adapter driver. I thought it is an usb adapter driver issue..)

I need help to do an arduino/raspberry project and let raspberry communicate with arduino through apc220, do you think it would be possible?

There does not seem to be a problem with drivers.

However, several people have reported that you must break off the EN pin when using the USB adapter with Linux. See the bottom of this page as an example.

Your link seems cutted, 404 error.

you mean this: http://www.dfrobot.com/wiki/in.....e=Wireless

then apc220's page ?

however.. thanks for reply!

What's your advice to get apc220 working soon, when i will finally get raspberry pi?

Another question... do they work fine when i had more than 2 apc220 in my network?

for example can 4 x apc220 transreicever module works all together?

Yes, that's the correct page. This stupid forum won't let me paste a link which contains brackets.

The apc220 should appear as a serial USB device (/dev/ttyUSBx). I advise you to read the manual for the stty command (google for man stty) to learn how to set the baud rate for a serial device.

My comments came from experience with USB to serial adaptors. I have no experience with apc220, so I have no idea if multiple module pairs can be used in the same room.
