Bonding

 

oLocal / Remote / Smart

Bonding mode selection. The selection affects the availability of certain features below. For more information about bonding see IQRF OS User's Guide, chapter Bonding.

Local

Used if new Node is in direct range to the Coordinator.

Remote (for DPA v3.03 or lower)

Used if new Node is not in direct range to the Coordinator but it is in range to any existing (bonded) Node.

Smart (for OS 4.03D, DPA 3.03 or higher)

To use IQRF Smart Connect feature.

 

oAddress

Requested address of new Node.

oAuto Address

If active (checked) Coordinator assigns the first free address during bonding.

oTest retries

Maximum number of FRCs used to test whether the Node was successfully bonded. If the value is 0, then no test is performed and the command always succeeds. The value 0 must be set always if a Node is bonded using the CATS.

oBond Node

Bonds a given Node by the Coordinator according to Local / Remote / Smart selection. Passing of operations is displayed in the Communication in progress window and can be canceled anytime. After successful bonding the result is displayed in the Nodes Info table and the Address field is automatically set to just assigned address + 1.

 

oUnbond Node

Removes given Node from the list of bonded Nodes at Coordinator memory. If Only in Coordinator unchecked then Remove bond + Restart commands are sent to given Node.

oOnly in Coordinator

If active (checked) the Node/Nodes is removed only from the list of bonded Nodes at the Coordinator memory (the Remove bond command is not sent to the given Node/Nodes).

oRebond Node (for DPA v3.03 or lower)

Puts specified Node back to the list of boded nodes in the Coordinator memory.

oClear All Bonds

Removes all Nodes from the list of bonded Nodes in Coordinator. If Only in Coordinator unchecked then Remove bond + Restart commands are sent as a broadcast to all Nodes.


 

Discovery

 

oTx Power

Tx power used for a Discovery.

oMax. Node address (DPA version 1.02 or higher)

Maximum Node address to be part of the discovery process. This feature allows to split all node devices into tho parts: [1] devices having address from 0 to Max. Node address will be part of the discovery process thus they become routers, [2] devices having address from Max. Node address+1 to 239 will not be routers.


 

Nodes Info

Survey table of bonded (yellow) and discovered (blue) Nodes. It is automatically updated once a command in section Bonding is executed, by the Update button or by the Update Data button on the control panel together with the map and the table.

 

oGiven address in the Bonding / Address field is selected by clicking respective location in the table.

 

oDoubleclick to an occupied location in the table switches to the Map View tab with highlighted path to given Node. After switching to the Table View tab the row of given Node is highlighted.

 

oBy clicking the right mouse button on a location in the table the menu is displayed (menu items may differ according to the IQRF OS and DPA version detected). Menu items are active depending on the fact whether a free or an occupied location has been clicked and if Local or Remote Bonding is selected.

Bond Node

 

Unbond Node

 

Rebond Node

 

Remove Node Address

Assigns a temporary address 0xFE to the Node. The Node stays in the IQMESH network (it is not unbonded but prebonded).

Enable Prebondig

Enables prebonding of new Nodes to the given network device.

Disable Prebonding

Disables prebonding of new Nodes to the given network device.

Clear flag: Prebonding provided

Clears information about prebonded Node in memory of given network device.

Send Packet from DPA Test

Sends the packet currently selected in the DPA Test / Data to send window to the given network device (only NADR is changed).

Indicate

Sends the Indicate command to the given Node.

LED Red Pulse

Sends the LED Red Pulse command to the given network device.

LED Red On

Sends the LED Red On command to the given network device.

LED Red Off

Sends the LED Red Off command to the given network device.

OS Read

Sends the OS Read command to the given network device.

Configure TR

Reads TR configuration from given network device and opens the TR Configuration window. The configuration can be changed and uploaded back to given network device.

Reset TR

Sends the Reset command to the given network device.

Restart TR

Sends the Restart command to the given network device. This command is similar to the Reset command except RFPGM on reset (when it is enabled) is always skipped. For more information see document IQRF DPA Framework Technical guide.

Enumerate (full)

Reads OS info, TR configuration and list of supported peripherals from given network device. The Table View window is automatically displayed after data reading.

Backup

 

Copy MID

Copies MID to the Windows clipboard. The item is enabled only if an enumeration was read from given network device.

Show IQRF Alliance Product Info

Shows the product information from the IQRF Repository. This item is enabled only if the IQRF Repository knows the HWPID.
