changing xbee s1 wire antenna and attach an SMA connector

0 votes
Dear Admin,

I have read a post regarding changing an XBEE series1 1mw chip antenna to attach a different connector and you mentioned to the poster that its a bot challenging.

my question if i can take out the wire antenna on models that i have and attach either a ufl connector to then attach an SMA cable connector, or if possible to attach an SMA connector directly.

if it is possible to do the above please guide me through this. I am a researcher and i need to have this capability.

appreciate any suggestions.

thank you in advance [:D]

I suggest you to try perytons Xbee sniffer. You will not face any problem with this.

maybe you need a SMA to u.fl assmebly, so you can connector them, or take one SMA to U.FL adapter?

Adding a U.FL connector may be possible if you make the proper connections (the warranty will be void). But going to RPSMA or SMA will not be possible as that is a different PCB layout for it.
