xBee Modules are great for long range wireless communications and to implement complex mesh networks. But using them in your projects has always been difficult because of the xBee modules odd pin spacing, voltage regulator and level shifter requirements. This shield simplies these issues and makes using xBee Modules almost plug and play. Using this shield, you only have to insert your xbee module on the provided socket and plug the shield onto your Arduno UNO. With no additional circuit and connections required, you can then start using the xbee modules.
This Xbee Shield allows Arduino boards to communicate wirelessly with each other using Zigbee. This Xbee/ZIgbee PRO Shield simplifies the task of interfacing a Xbee/Zigbee module to Arduino Uno. This module works with all Xbee module including Zigbee Series 1, Zigbee Series 2 and also Xbee Pro versions. Whats great it also works with Bluetooth bee Modules.
Onboard slide switch lets you connect the xbee DIN and DOUT lines to the Arduino Microcontroller or the USB Port. Which means you can use your xBee to communicate with the Arduino or the computer. You can communicate with the computer to program the xbee modules using the XCTU software. b>Features
