Xbee Shield for Arduino (without Xbee)
The XBee Expansion Board is a compliant solution designed to meet low-cost, low-power
wireless sensor networks with special needs.The module is easy to use, low power
consumption, and the provision of critical data between devices reliable transmission. As
the innovative design, XBee-PRO can be in the range 2-3 times beyond the standard
ZigBee modules. XBee-PRO modules work in the ISM 2.4GHz frequency band. The
MaxStream’s XBee (1 mW) Zigbee module is pin-compatible.
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-developd in collaboration with the MaxStream
ZigBee/802.15.4 RF module code.
Note: Transparent communication with a leonardo board its not compatible, for
