The RCTools-TM contains PC software tools supporting modules with the Tinymesh protocol. The RCTools-TM is covered by the RCTools-RC232 documentation.
The TM-CCT (Tinymesh Configuration and Communication Tool) 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.
RC232 Configuration & Communication Tool User Manual
The TM-SA (Tinymesh Spectrum Analyzer) 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.
