Type: Mote

The CM3000 mote is a IEEE 802.15.4 wireless sensor node based on the original open-source "TelosB" platform design developed and published by the University of California, Berkeley. The mote has the following general characteristics:

The CM3000 presents a compact design in which the traditional USB connector has been replaced with an ERNI® connector compatible with Interface modules. The Hirose® 51-pin connector also adds versatility to this product as it is attachable to all the sensor boards family, and the SMA design greatly increases coverage area through the use of a more powerful 5dBi external antenna.

Warning: To avoid damage to this device, make sure to remove batteries before plugging it to the host computer's USB port (via a USB1000 interface board).
