The Arduino XBee shield is designed to meet wireless sensor networks such as wifi, bluetooth 2.0/4.0 and zigbee. The module is easy to use, low power consumption, and the provision of critical data between devices reliable transmission.
The shield can be directly stack on top of Arduino Uno / Leonardo and Mega. It provides a 5-3.3V voltage converter to allow 3.3V communication modules to interface Arduino 5V system.
The Xbee module is widely used in the United States, Canada, Australia, Israel and Europe. The establishment of RF communication does not require any configuration and the module's default configuration supports a wide range of data system applications. You can also use a simple AT command to advanced configuration. An OEM developer is now XBee code development package. It is self-developed in collaboration with the MaxStream ZigBee/802.15.4 RF module code.
