FUNCTIONS

new()

Creates an object with the unique device ID *uid* and adds it to the IP Connection *ipcon*.

get_stack_voltage()

Returns the stack voltage in mV. The stack voltage is the voltage that is supplied via the stack, i.e. it is given by a Step-Down or Step-Up Power Supply.

get_stack_current()

Returns the stack current in mA. The stack current is the current that is drawn via the stack, i.e. it is given by a Step-Down or Step-Up Power Supply.

set_extension_type()

Writes the extension type to the EEPROM of a specified extension. The extension is either 0 or 1 (0 is the on the bottom, 1 is the one on top, if only one extension is present use 0).

Possible extension types:

.. csv-table:: :header: "Type", "Description" :widths: 10, 100

 "1",    "Chibi"
 "2",    "RS485"
 "3",    "WIFI"
 "4",    "Ethernet"
 "5",    "WIFI 2.0"

The extension type is already set when bought and it can be set with the Brick Viewer, it is unlikely that you need this function.

get_extension_type()

Returns the type for a given extension as set by :func:`Set Extension Type`.

is_chibi_present()

Returns *true* if a Chibi Extension is available to be used by the Master Brick.

set_chibi_address()

Sets the address (1-255) belonging to the Chibi Extension.

It is possible to set the address with the Brick Viewer and it will be saved in the EEPROM of the Chibi Extension, it does not have to be set on every startup.

get_chibi_address()

Returns the address as set by :func:`Set Chibi Address`.

set_chibi_master_address()

Sets the address (1-255) of the Chibi Master. This address is used if the Chibi Extension is used as slave (i.e. it does not have a USB connection).

It is possible to set the address with the Brick Viewer and it will be saved in the EEPROM of the Chibi Extension, it does not have to be set on every startup.

get_chibi_master_address()

Returns the address as set by :func:`Set Chibi Master Address`.

set_chibi_slave_address()

Sets up to 254 slave addresses. Valid addresses are in range 1-255. 0 has a special meaning, it is used as list terminator and not allowed as normal slave address. The address numeration (via num parameter) has to be used ascending from 0. For example: If you use the Chibi Extension in Master mode (i.e. the stack has an USB connection) and you want to talk to three other Chibi stacks with the slave addresses 17, 23, and 42, you should call with ``(0, 17)``, ``(1, 23)``, ``(2, 42)`` and ``(3, 0)``. The last call with ``(3, 0)`` is a list terminator and indicates that the Chibi slave address list contains 3 addresses in this case.

It is possible to set the addresses with the Brick Viewer, that will take care of correct address numeration and list termination.

The slave addresses will be saved in the EEPROM of the Chibi Extension, they don't have to be set on every startup.

get_chibi_slave_address()

Returns the slave address for a given num as set by :func:`Set Chibi Slave Address`.

get_chibi_signal_strength()

Returns the signal strength in dBm. The signal strength updates every time a packet is received.

get_chibi_error_log()

Returns underrun, CRC error, no ACK and overflow error counts of the Chibi communication. If these errors start rising, it is likely that either the distance between two Chibi stacks is becoming too big or there are interferences.

Sets the Chibi frequency range for the Chibi Extension. Possible values are:

.. csv-table:: :header: "Type", "Description" :widths: 10, 100

 "0",    "OQPSK 868MHz (Europe)"
 "1",    "OQPSK 915MHz (US)"
 "2",    "OQPSK 780MHz (China)"
 "3",    "BPSK40 915MHz"

It is possible to set the frequency with the Brick Viewer and it will be saved in the EEPROM of the Chibi Extension, it does not have to be set on every startup.

get_chibi_frequency()

Returns the frequency value as set by :func:`Set Chibi Frequency`.

set_chibi_channel()

Sets the channel used by the Chibi Extension. Possible channels are different for different frequencies:

.. csv-table:: :header: "Frequency", "Possible Channels" :widths: 40, 60

 "OQPSK 868MHz (Europe)", "0"
 "OQPSK 915MHz (US)",     "1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10"
 "OQPSK 780MHz (China)",  "0, 1, 2, 3"
 "BPSK40 915MHz",         "1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10"

It is possible to set the channel with the Brick Viewer and it will be saved in the EEPROM of the Chibi Extension, it does not have to be set on every startup.

get_chibi_channel()

Returns the channel as set by :func:`Set Chibi Channel`.

is_rs485_present()

Returns *true* if a RS485 Extension is available to be used by the Master Brick.

set_rs485_address()

Sets the address (0-255) belonging to the RS485 Extension.

Set to 0 if the RS485 Extension should be the RS485 Master (i.e. connected to a PC via USB).

It is possible to set the address with the Brick Viewer and it will be saved in the EEPROM of the RS485 Extension, it does not have to be set on every startup.

get_rs485_address()

Returns the address as set by :func:`Set RS485 Address`.

set_rs485_slave_address()

Sets up to 255 slave addresses. Valid addresses are in range 1-255. 0 has a special meaning, it is used as list terminator and not allowed as normal slave address. The address numeration (via ``num`` parameter) has to be used ascending from 0. For example: If you use the RS485 Extension in Master mode (i.e. the stack has an USB connection) and you want to talk to three other RS485 stacks with the addresses 17, 23, and 42, you should call with ``(0, 17)``, ``(1, 23)``, ``(2, 42)`` and ``(3, 0)``. The last call with ``(3, 0)`` is a list terminator and indicates that the RS485 slave address list contains 3 addresses in this case.

It is possible to set the addresses with the Brick Viewer, that will take care of correct address numeration and list termination.

The slave addresses will be saved in the EEPROM of the Chibi Extension, they don't have to be set on every startup.

get_rs485_slave_address()

Returns the slave address for a given ``num`` as set by :func:`Set RS485 Slave Address`.

get_rs485_error_log()

Returns CRC error counts of the RS485 communication. If this counter starts rising, it is likely that the distance between the RS485 nodes is too big or there is some kind of interference.

set_rs485_configuration()

Sets the configuration of the RS485 Extension. Speed is given in baud. The Master Brick will try to match the given baud rate as exactly as possible. The maximum recommended baud rate is 2000000 (2Mbit/s). Possible values for parity are 'n' (none), 'e' (even) and 'o' (odd). Possible values for stop bits are 1 and 2.

If your RS485 is unstable (lost messages etc.), the first thing you should try is to decrease the speed. On very large bus (e.g. 1km), you probably should use a value in the range of 100000 (100kbit/s).

The values are stored in the EEPROM and only applied on startup. That means you have to restart the Master Brick after configuration.

get_rs485_configuration()

Returns the configuration as set by :func:`Set RS485 Configuration`.

is_wifi_present()

Returns *true* if a WIFI Extension is available to be used by the Master Brick.

set_wifi_configuration()

Sets the configuration of the WIFI Extension. The ``ssid`` can have a max length of 32 characters. Possible values for ``connection`` are:

.. csv-table:: :header: "Value", "Description" :widths: 10, 90

 "0", "DHCP"
 "1", "Static IP"
 "2", "Access Point: DHCP"
 "3", "Access Point: Static IP"
 "4", "Ad Hoc: DHCP"
 "5", "Ad Hoc: Static IP"

If you set ``connection`` to one of the static IP options then you have to supply ``ip``, ``subnet_mask`` and ``gateway`` as an array of size 4 (first element of the array is the least significant byte of the address). If ``connection`` is set to one of the DHCP options then ``ip``, ``subnet_mask`` and ``gateway`` are ignored, you can set them to 0.

The last parameter is the port that your program will connect to. The default port, that is used by brickd, is 4223.

The values are stored in the EEPROM and only applied on startup. That means you have to restart the Master Brick after configuration.

It is recommended to use the Brick Viewer to set the WIFI configuration.

get_wifi_configuration()

Returns the configuration as set by :func:`Set Wifi Configuration`.

set_wifi_encryption()

Sets the encryption of the WIFI Extension. The first parameter is the type of the encryption. Possible values are:

.. csv-table:: :header: "Value", "Description" :widths: 10, 90

 "0", "WPA/WPA2"
 "1", "WPA Enterprise (EAP-FAST, EAP-TLS, EAP-TTLS, PEAP)"
 "2", "WEP"
 "3", "No Encryption"

The ``key`` has a max length of 50 characters and is used if ``encryption`` is set to 0 or 2 (WPA/WPA2 or WEP). Otherwise the value is ignored.

For WPA/WPA2 the key has to be at least 8 characters long. If you want to set a key with more than 50 characters, see :func:`Set Long Wifi Key`.

For WEP the key has to be either 10 or 26 hexadecimal digits long. It is possible to set the WEP ``key_index`` (1-4). If you don't know your ``key_index``, it is likely 1.

If you choose WPA Enterprise as encryption, you have to set ``eap_options`` and the length of the certificates (for other encryption types these parameters are ignored). The certificate length are given in byte and the certificates themselves can be set with :func:`Set Wifi Certificate`. ``eap_options`` consist of the outer authentication (bits 1-2), inner authentication (bit 3) and certificate type (bits 4-5):

.. csv-table:: :header: "Option", "Bits", "Description" :widths: 20, 10, 70

The values are stored in the EEPROM and only applied on startup. That means you have to restart the Master Brick after configuration.

It is recommended to use the Brick Viewer to set the Wi-Fi encryption.

get_wifi_encryption()

Returns the encryption as set by :func:`Set Wifi Encryption`.

get_wifi_status()

Returns the status of the WIFI Extension. The ``state`` is updated automatically, all of the other parameters are updated on startup and every time :func:`Refresh Wifi Status` is called.

Possible states are:

.. csv-table:: :header: "State", "Description" :widths: 10, 90

 "0", "Disassociated"
 "1", "Associated"
 "2", "Associating"
 "3", "Error"
 "255", "Not initialized yet"
refresh_wifi_status()

Refreshes the Wi-Fi status (see :func:`Get Wifi Status`). To read the status of the Wi-Fi module, the Master Brick has to change from data mode to command mode and back. This transaction and the readout itself is unfortunately time consuming. This means, that it might take some ms until the stack with attached WIFI Extension reacts again after this function is called.

set_wifi_certificate()

This function is used to set the certificate as well as password and username for WPA Enterprise. To set the username use index 0xFFFF, to set the password use index 0xFFFE. The max length of username and password is 32.

The certificate is written in chunks of size 32 and the index is used as the index of the chunk. ``data_length`` should nearly always be 32. Only the last chunk can have a length that is not equal to 32.

The starting index of the CA Certificate is 0, of the Client Certificate 10000 and for the Private Key 20000. Maximum sizes are 1312, 1312 and 4320 byte respectively.

The values are stored in the EEPROM and only applied on startup. That means you have to restart the Master Brick after uploading the certificate.

It is recommended to use the Brick Viewer to set the certificate, username and password.

 "1", "Low Power (low power consumption, low throughput)"

The default value is 0 (Full Speed).

get_wifi_power_mode()

Returns the power mode as set by :func:`Set Wifi Power Mode`.

get_wifi_buffer_info()

Returns informations about the Wi-Fi receive buffer. The Wi-Fi receive buffer has a max size of 1500 byte and if data is transfered too fast, it might overflow.

The return values are the number of overflows, the low watermark (i.e. the smallest number of bytes that were free in the buffer) and the bytes that are currently used.

You should always try to keep the buffer empty, otherwise you will have a permanent latency. A good rule of thumb is, that you can transfer 1000 messages per second without problems.

Try to not send more then 50 messages at a time without any kind of break between them.

set_wifi_regulatory_domain()

reset()

Calling this function will reset the Brick. Calling this function on a Brick inside of a stack will reset the whole stack.

After a reset you have to create new device objects, calling functions on the existing ones will result in undefined behavior!

get_identity()

Returns the UID, the UID where the Brick is connected to, the position, the hardware and firmware version as well as the device identifier.

The position can be '0'-'8' (stack position).

The device identifier numbers can be found :ref:`here <device_identifier>`. |device_identifier_constant|
