This product was replaced by a updated version XBee Shield V2.0 (SLD01103P).
A Xbee shield allows an Arduino board to communicate wirelessly using Zigbee. It is based on the Xbee module from MaxStream. The module can communicate up to 100 feet indoors or 300 feet outdoors (with line-of-sight). It can be used as a serial/USB replacement or you can put it into a command mode and configure it for a variety of broadcast and mesh networking options. The shields breaks out each of the Xbee's pins to a through-hole solder pad.
I'm new to arduino and I'm a bit confused. Can I use the shield with an arduino, and without a module (bluetooth, etc.) or do I also need to buy a module? I'm just experimenting for the moment so I don't want to purchase any unnecessary modules.
Hi, i still have the following error, please advice me on how to solve it. thanks . the error is avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x00
This shield has shut down,and this shield is just a platform for Xbee modules, you need buy some Xbee modules(like BTRFwifi bee) if you wanna use them with Arduino.
I bought one of these at Radioshack, and have a couple of questions.
Will this xbee shield work with a OEM Arduino UNO that runs 5Volt?
Are the pins N$3,N$4, etc on the same header as D0,D1 used for anything or just used to secure the modul
Hi Mark, thanks for your feedback, we will check it and reply you soon.
I have 2 questions, does this shield needs the arduino to work?? or can work withdraw it??
Is it compatible to a Atmel Microcontroler that has the arduino program in it??
Dear custom , because there is not sketch upload to rainbowduino , you can refer to the wiki page , download the library for it , and try to upload the example , thanks.
Hi,Yes,this shield needs the arduino to work.but you will work in arduino better. enjoy~~
I purchased this at Radio Shack to program my 2 RFBEE's to control the Relay Shield, Purchased form here also. I have an Arduino Uno and an Arduino Mega, How do i Write to the ATmega on the RFBEE with this Shield? how do i Utilize the Relay shield with
Maybe, but we haven't tested about that.
Hi,if you want to connect RFBEE to Relay shield,you can plug RF on Relay shield derectly without Xbee@shield,more information you can refer to the wiki of relay shield.And you can program RFBEE through UartSB,but it is not convenient to program RFBEE w
Is this shield compatible with the Arduino Micro?
Yes, it is.
Yes , it can be used with Arduino Mircro, but it only connect to Arduino Micro with SPI interface, so only D11 and D12 for communication with Xbee Moudle.
Is this shield compatible with the Uno?
I plugged it in via usb and stilll get same results. one blinking red led at (3,0,3).....???
I have one of these shields and I want to use it with my motor shield which is one of the newer ones. How do I interface this board to my Arduino with the Motor shield on my Arduino as well? I have the uno model of the Arduino.
Dear customer, if you attach your photo to show up what happen with you would be better. So at here I just suggest you try to check the points might be there are too week.
No that is not the one I am talking about. I am talking about this one:
I am planning to use this with a Seeeduino v 2.21. On the wiki page it says the seeeduinos voltage switch must be set to 3,3v. However my solution needs this to be at 5v. What should I do?
Sorry for the inconvenience brought. Please post your question in more detail on the forum.
Hi,i am sorry that it would work under 3.3v only.
How is it possible to use the external interrupts (pins 2 and 3) with this shield? Thanks.
Hi, what device you want to interrupts with? This is for Bee module.
One way can check LED work find or not.Use a jumper wire to supply power for LEDs that can easy to know it is pcb broke or LEDs.
Anyway you can attach your photo and problem to our forum that would be more people can help you.:P
I am working on SEEEDUINO 2.21 board i did the soldering for UART 6 pin berg strip on I/o borad and 6 pin Flow solder on XBEE shield,On shiled i have put 1st switch to left and 2nd to right. On I/o board reset on Auto and Voltage to 3.3v. while i have
Please send your question to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Suggest you solder your PCB carefully, could be poor connect. Check your LEDs legs might be week solder.
And about clips, we can give you some more, you can consider to buy some more product together then send all of those to you.
