XBee Carrier is a Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) base board designed for Bee series and groves. It is primarily suitable for standalone Bee Nodes like RFBee,Wifi Bee which have ATMega328 onboard. It is compatible with RFBee, Wifi Bee , XBee and Bluetooth Bee. Besides a Bee receptacle, there are also two Grove connectors. The board cab be powered by a lithium battery or through USB cable. You can use a Wireless charger, Solar Panel or the USB cable to charge the battery. The FT232RL chip onboard helps in downloading the program to Bee Module directly.
Bees which do not have ATMega328 like Bluetooth Bee can only be configured by using on-board FT232RL(USB to UART). Theses Bees are not suitable for standalone applications.
The on-board FT232RL can be used like any other 3.3V USB to UART interface when not connected to any Bee Modules. This is useful for programming a 3.3V MCU through Serial Port.

Maybe you can refer to the wiki of XBee carrier first (http://www.seeedstudio.com/wik... and get more information about it, almost all of it have been posted there.
Hi, sorry my question but, this device can send data to other XBEE without Arduino? (or other). Grove - Xbee Carrier can be programmed as Arduino? or I need a Arduino to send data from sensors to other xbee. if the response is yes, here sale the connec
Hey! This looks like a great solution. I apologize if this has been answered already, but can this be powered by anything besides the USB connector? Specifically, I was wondering if there was a way that this can be used solely via the Grove connectors.
Carrier lights are on all the time - When i switch on power - pwr, rx & tx are all lit. After inserting an XBee Pro 900 Digimesh (DMSIT) module the lights stay on but the XBee which transmits analog data every 5 seconds when power by a different board
Just to confirm. The input voltage for the board is 3.0 - 3.6v/
Is it possible to simultaneously connect an Grove - Infrared Emitter and a Grove - Temperature&Humidity Sensor Pro? The idea is to have a carrier board (with XBee module) that is capable of forwarding commands to an IR controllable device and
Can / how the standalone bee know the battery charge level ?
I connect the Temp & Humid Sensor to this Xbee Carrier along with Wifi Bee, but when I tried to use an example sketch to get Temp & Humid value it returns timeout or no value received, the tutorial says to use pin 2 (note : it is for DHT11 that has 4 p
I want to know if this unit could be used as an Xbee Explorer Board and used to globally broadcast to other Xbee receivers. I am converting all of my Christmas Light Display Boards to Wireless and I need an explorer board to use as a transmitter from t
