We will also learn how this module works and how wireless communication occurs. And finally, we will learn how to use this module with Arduino to transmit and receive data packet wirelessly. And also available in different packages.
But basically, all these modules have the same function. You can purchase any of these modules. The transmitter section is tiny and has 4 pins, while the receiver section is a little bigger in size and has 8 pins. Transmitter Section This little module is a transmitter. There are a switching transistor and a few passive components. This technique is known as Amplitude Shift Keying which is discussed below.
Receiver Section This one is a receiver module. It consists of an RF tuned circuit and a couple of OP Amps to amplify the received carrier wave from the transmitter. In Amplitude Shift Keying the amplitude of the carrier wave is changed in response to the incoming data signal. This is very similar to the analogue technique of amplitude modulation similar to AM radio. Amplitude Shift keying is very simple to implement and inexpensive too which is a plus point factor.
It is quite simple to design the decoder circuitry. We will be sending data between two Arduino boards, so we will need two Arduino boards, two breadboards and a couple of jumper wires. The RF module in both sections has an antenna. The actual height of the antenna should be 69 cm. So you can use any wired antenna around 17 cm in length. Transmitter Section Wiring The wiring for the transmitter is simple. It has only three connections.
Receiver Section Wiring The wiring for the receiver is just as easy as the transmitter. Once again there are only three connections to make. Any of the middle two Data-Out pins should be connected to digital pin 11 as shown in the figure. Radiohead is a library that allows simple data transfer between Arduino boards.
In the setup function, we need to initialize the ASK object. In the loop function, we start by preparing a message.
The message is then transmitted using a send function. It has two parameters: first is an array of data and second is a number of bytes length of the data to be sent. The send function is usually followed by waitPacketSent function which waits until any previous transmit packet is finished being transmitted. After that, the sketch waits for a second to give our receiver time to take in everything. In the setup function: we initialize the ASK object and also set up the serial monitor as this is how we will view our received message.
In loop function: we create a buffer of size same as the transmitted message. Next, we call a recv function. This turns the receiver on if it not already on. If there is a valid message available, it copies the message to its first parameter buffer and returns true else return false.
If the function returns true, the sketch enters into if statement and prints the received message on the serial monitor.
How 433MHz RF Tx-Rx Modules Work & Interface with Arduino
They can often be obtained online for less than two dollars for a pair, making them one of the most inexpensive data communication options that you can get. And best of all, these modules are super tiny, allowing you to incorporate a wireless interface into almost any project. This little module is a transmitter among two. It is really simple as it looks.
