Connecting through FTDI cable instead of USB

Post by intveltr » 19 Jun 2017 20:35

I've recently starting playing around with the Z-Uno board (Fantastic little device, by the way). However the other day the breadboard with the Z-Uno and a USB cable plugged in fell off my workbench, and wouldn't you know it, the USB connector broke off. Unfortunately it cannot be resoldered...

Is there a way to connect to Z-Uno using an FTDI cable, and if so, which pins do I connect to?

No ;( USB is directly connected to pins of the Z-Wave chip USB.

You should try to resolder the port

Some of the pads came off with the connector so that's going to be tough.

I'll just order 1 extra to replace it.

Hi,

you could still try to upload new sketches with OTA (as described here) and power the device over pin 1 (5 Volt)or over the battery connector / pin 4 (3.3 Volt) directly...

Regards,
Andreas.
