Configuring a Tinymesh Network

A Tinymesh network is self-forming, created by Gateway units starting to invite Routers and End Devices within RF range to join in the network. A Router joins the network after verifying the invitation, and immediately starts inviting new nodes to join. Within seconds of powering up the Gateway, a large network may be created automatically. Devices in the network continuously evaluate alternate connections by comparing the hop level and signal strength of received packets.

A Tinymesh network must have at least one Gateway Device. The Gateway Device initiates the network formation, and is required to keep the network alive. Gateway Devices provide the connection between the Tinymesh Routers and End Devices, and an external host processor, or to a local- or wide area network, such as the Internet. The Tinymesh stack supports implementations with multiple Gateways, where additional Gateway devices provide redundancy and data traffic load sharing. Gateway devices support full Input / Output control capabilities, similar to Routers and End Devices.

Router Devices are full-functioning devices with serial data UART and Input / Output capabilities. Router Devices provide the communication path between individual Router- or End-devices, and the network Gateway. Router devices must always be powered, to support routing of packets received from other devices.

End devices will normally be in low power sleep mode for battery operation. They have full input- and output control capabilities, but will not accept messages for re-distribution from other devices. An End Device will wake up to full power mode by external stimuli, such as a digital input level shift, and generate an Event Message. The End Device will either return directly to sleep condition, or stay awake waiting for response commands from a server or application outside the Tinymesh™ network.

RCTools Installation guide RCTools is a powerful and easy to use PC suite that helps you during test, development and deployment of the Radiocrafts modules. The RCTools includes RC_CCT, RC_SA and RC_DT stand alone applications running under windows .Net Framework. The RCTools is free of charge and easily installed (including .NET and USB Driver) by running the setup file.
RCTools – TM The RCTools-TM contains PC software tools supporting modules TM protocol.
RC232 Spectrum Analyzer (SA) User Manual The TM-SA (Tinymesh Spectrum Analyzer) is based on RC232-SA . It enables you to easily scan all or a subset of radio channels the module can operate on. This is a handy tool for checking for free channels and to verify that you actually are transmitting on the right frequency. The SA tool also enable the possibility of optimizing antenna performance and compare relatively the performance of various antenna solutions.
RC232 Configuration & Communication Tool User Manual The TM-CCT (Tinymesh Configuration and Communication Tool) is based on the RC232-CTT. It helps you to work with your Radiocrafts modules. The program enables you to easily configure the module and can additionally work as a terminal window, where data can be sent to, or received from any serial port. The RSSI (Received Signal Strength Indicator) informs you about the Link budget and helps you estimate range.
