struct ExplicitAddressingZigBeeTransmitRequest

File Information

Library: IoT/XBee
Package: XBeeNode
Header: IoT/XBee/XBeeNode.h


Allows ZigBee application layer fields (endpoint and cluster ID) to be specified for a data transmission.

Similar to the ZigBee Transmit Request, but also requires ZigBee application layer addressing fields to be specified (endpoints, cluster ID, profile ID). An Explicit Addressing Request API frame causes the module to send data as an RF packet to the specified destination, using the specified source and destination endpoints, cluster ID, and profile ID.

Frame Type: 0x11



Poco::UInt8 broadcastRadius;

Sets maximum number of hops a broadcast transmission can occur. If set to 0, the broadcast radius will be set to the maximum hops value.


Poco::UInt16 clusterID;

Cluster ID used in the transmission


Poco::UInt8 destinationEndpoint;

Destination endpoint for the transmission.


std::string deviceAddress;

Hexadecimal text representation of 64-bit address of the destination device. Can be "0000000000000000" or empty for the coordinator, or "000000000000FFFF" for broadcast.


Poco::UInt8 frameID;

Identifies the serial port data frame for the host to correlate with a subsequent ACK (acknowledgement). If set to 0, no response is sent.


std::string networkAddress;

Hexadecimal text representation of the 16-bit network address of the device. Can be left empty or set to "FFFE" if the address is unknown, or if sending a broadcast.


Poco::UInt8 options;

Bitfield of supported transmission options. Supported values include the following:

  • 0x01 - Disable retries
  • 0x04 - Indirect addressing
  • 0x08 - Multicast addressing
  • 0x20 - Enable APS encryption (if EE=1)
  • 0x40 - Use the extended transmission timeout for this destination

Enabling APS encryption decreases the maximum number of RF payload bytes by 4 (below the value reported by NP). Setting the extended timeout bit causes the stack to set the extended transmission timeout for the destination address. All unused and unsupported bits must be set to 0.


std::vector < Poco::UInt8 > payload;

Data that is sent to the destination device.


Poco::UInt16 profileID;

Profile ID used in the transmission.


Poco::UInt8 sourceEndpoint;

Source endpoint for the transmission.
