This module can be connected only to the SOCKET0 placed in the Waspmote board.
Expansion Radio Board
The Expansion Board allows to connect 2 communication modules at the same time in the Waspmote sensor platform. This means a lot of different combinations are possible using any of the wireless radios available for Waspmote: 802.15.4, ZigBee 3, DigiMesh, 868 MHz, 900 MHz, LoRa, WiFi, NB-IoT / Cat-M, 4G, Sigfox, LoRaWAN, Bluetooth Pro, Bluetooth Low Energy and RFID/NFC. Besides, the following Industrial Protocols modules are available: RS-485/Modbus and CAN Bus.
LoRaWAN - 4G
802.15.4 - Sigfox
868 MHz - RS-485
NB-IoT / Cat-M - WiFi
DigiMesh - 4G
NB-IoT / Cat-M - RFID/NFC
WiFi - 4G
CAN Bus - Bluetooth
NB-IoT / Cat-M and 4G modules do not need the Expansion Board to be connected to Waspmote. They can be plugged directly in the socket1.
The RS-485 module can be used only in the socket 0. If the user wants to use a wireless radio, he must use the socket 1.
RS-485, CAN Bus and LoRa modules can only be plugged on the socket 0 of Waspmote. That means, for example, that one Waspmote cannot have RS-485 and LoRa at the same time.
Avoid to use DIGITAL7 pin when working with the Expansion Board. This pin is used for setting the XBee into sleep mode.
Avoid to use DIGITAL6 pin when working with the Expansion Board. This pin is used as power supply for the Expansion Board.
Incompatibility with Sensor Boards:
