USB Kickstart-Development Kit
"Plug and Sigfox"
This USB Dongle comes with all inside, that is needed to communicate over the Sigfox network in both directions.
We have prepared a SW for Windows that encapsulates all the underlying AT-command communication to the dongle.
Neither hardware wireing or soldering, nor embedded or application programming is needed.
So, you just have to enter the data to send either in ASCII or Hex or a Bit and press the button.
You can monitor the message in the backend of the Sigfox Cloud.
Of course the dongle comes with the needed Sigfox credentials so you can activate it easily.
Off the shelf usage
The main purpose for the SIGFOX-UBS2-C is to give you a quick setup to send data from your PC or any other system with USB port to the Sigfox Cloud. So you can see what our SIGFOX-MOD1-C on the inside can, and how it is commanded and how the Sigfox Network and Backend can be used.
Here a example setup and simplified workflow:
Plug the SIGFOX-UBS2-C dongle to a windows system
Login to the Sigfox Backend with your account
Select the device and change to the Messages Tab
Start our XoverIoT Sigfox Terminal program
Enter some data, e.g. Hello world and press Send
After the magic of the module and the Sigfox network is done, you can see the message occuring in the backend.
Of course you can command the Dongle from your own application program by using the AT-command set, given in the modem datasheet. ( see link below ).
The dongle is showing up in your operating system as a virtual com port. Just open the appropriate port ( 115200Baud, 8,1, N ), send commands and read the response.
Start with the simplest command “AT” and the dongle will responde with “OK”. Whenever this is working in your programming, the rest will be straight foreward.
