CSW-M85, Embedded Serial to WiFi Module

CSW-M85 is an embedded serial to WiFi module that enables you to add wireless networking capabilities to your industrial equipment via UART. So by applying this serial to WiFi module, you can control and monitor your serial devices from anywhere in the world over WiFi.

CSW-M85 comes preloaded with Soft AP so that it can simply be linked to any devices with WiFi by operating as an AP. Thanks to this feature, it makes it easier for you to construct network with mobile devices such as smartphones, tablet PCs and laptops where WiFi network is inaccessible. This serial to WiFi module offers an enhanced security protocol, WPA Enterprise for business purpose to ensure high protection and reliability. CSW-M85 also provides Wireless RSSI mode that enables you to directly check the wireless signal strength through LEDs.

With infrastructure and Ad-hoc network provided, this embedded serial to WiFi module can be used for various wireless applications: POS System, Automobile Diagnosis, Survival Game, etc.

LQ Indication mode of CSW-M85

Let’s
look into LQ indication mode (or Received Signal Strength Indication mode)

 사용자 삽입 이미지

CSW-M85
has 4 operation modes.

 

1.
Normal mode

This
mode is for normal data communication and configuration.

There
are 4 communication modes.

 

2.
Serial Configuration mode

This
mode is for configuration via a serial port.

When
get you get a new CSW-M85, you should use this mode for the first
configuration.

 

3.
ISP mode

This
mode is for upgrading firmware.

 

4.
LQ indication mode (or RSSI mode)

This
mode is for indicating received signal strength with 4 LEDs

 

How
to use the LQ indication mode

 

Connect
11TH
pin(LINK_Q#) of CON1 to GND. (Give LOW to LINK_Q# pin)

The Test for Measuring CSW-M85 Communication Distance Outdoor

The Test for Measuring CSW-M85 Communication Distance Outdoor

Last July, the test for measuring communication distance was progressed in Songdo International Business District where it is easy to secure the straight-line distance as you can see in the picture below.

The types of antennas are as follows:
(1) Chip type antenna
(2) Internal(Chip) type cable antenna + 11.5cm cable / W51-BO-XX / WINIZEN
(3) External type antenna + 11.5cm cable / Hankook Antenna
(4) All-in-one external antenna(9cm cable) / Hankook Antenna
(5) All-in-one external antenna(15cm cable) / Lynx
(6) Patch antenna / Hankook Antenna

Measuring elements are RSSI, Link Wuality(LQ), and receive sensitivity each. RSSI and Link Quality was measured on CSW-M85 side,
and receive sensitivity was done on AP side.

The results came out as follows:

1. RSSI / Unit: dBm
