Enable strata’s ZigBee green power energy collection kit

Str-ncs36510-zb-eh-x-gevk is a strata enabled suite that demonstrates the use of ncs36510 in battery free ZigBee green power applications. The kit includes a USB device, namely ZigBee Coordinator (ZC) and interface with strata, as well as two energy collection nodes, which are used as ZigBee green power supply device (zgpd). By pressing the switch on each device, energy is generated and used to power the ncs36510 module. At startup, the module sends a ZigBee green power frame to control the smart home scene rendered in the strata PC application. A switch is used as a battery free light switch to control the lighting in the scene when pressed. The other switch represents the door sensor, which will open and close the door in the scene when pressed.

The kit consists of three boards: a USB dongle and two energy collection switches. USB dongle (ncs36510-zb-usb-gevb) is programmed using the firmware of DSR zboss ZigBee 3.0 library and configured as ZigBee Coordinator (ZC). The device is also connected to the strata PC application through the JSON API, which can be accessed through the ftdi usb-uart adapter. The energy collection switch (ncs36510-zb-eh-switch-gevb) is programmed using firmware to be used as ZigBee green power supply device (zgpd). It uses ZF afig-0007 generator to supply power to ncs36510 module through rectifier and voltage regulator. Each time the switch is pressed, zgpd will send the ZigBee green power “toggle” command to ZC. The block diagram is shown in Figure 5 below.
