Description: This XBee Shield made by rhydoLABZ simplifies the task of interfacing an XBee with your Arduino. It is compatible with Arduino boards and its clones boards with 3V3 as well as 5V interfacing voltage. It is based on Arduino R3 layout with additional pins.  This board mates directly with all Arduinos and equips it with wireless communication capabilities using the popular XBee module. Since it is populated with high current (500ma) 3V3 Regulator, this unit works with all XBee modules including the Series 1 and Series2, 2.5, standard and Pro version. It can be used with any module with the same footprint.

The shield is provided with a DPDT sliding switch which helps XBEE module to connect either PC via USB or UART Pins of Arduino microcontroller. This feature helps you to configure the XBEE module before using in your project.No need for separate XBEE development board or XBEE explorer. Power is taken from the 5V pin of the Arduino and regulated on-board to 3.3VDC before being supplied to the XBee. The shield also takes care of level shifting on the DIN & DOUT pin of the XBee.There is another option(Jumper Selectable) which allows you to connect XBEE module to either Digital UART or Software UART.

The board is polpulated with 3 state bus driver for converting 5V signal to 3V3 instead of normall voltage divider resistor network. Since we used the buffer we can use this shield with 3V3 as well .The board also includes LEDs to indicate power and activity on DIN, DOUT, RSSI,Sleep and DIO5 pins of the XBee. The Arduino's reset button is brought out on the shield, and a 12x11 grid of 0.1" holes are available for prototyping. The shield does come with headers installed, So no Soldering required at all, just plug and play.

  • Mounts directly onto your Arduino
  • Can be use as XBEE development board
  • Selectable level Shifting (5V & 3V3)
  • 3.3V power regulation and level shifting on-board
  • 12x11 grid of 0.1" spaced prototyping holes
  • All XBEE pins are available at male Headers
  • Reset button brought out
  • Power, DIN, DOUT, RSSI,Sleep and DIO5 indicator LEDs
  • Length: 2.7"
  • Width: 2.1"
Package Includes:
  • 1x Arduino Pinout Proto Shield
Documents & Downloads: NOTE: The XBee module is not included. The Jumper J6 is to be shorted accordingly for older Arduino boards where IOREF pin is absent

Useful product

By Vinayak Joshi from Goa, India on May 24, 2017
Delivers everything promised.
1)The switch provided helps to re-program the Arduino while the xbee is connected, this feature deserves applause.
2)Thanks to the extra long pin Female (male side extended)berge connectors the Arduino breakouts are mimiced perfectly on the shield.

1) reset button for the xbee
2) digital and analogue pin breakouts pulled near the veroboard area (the digital pin breakout near the Arduino breakout is pointless)
3) disconnect the 2 hole and 3 hole Vero board holes connected on the bottom layer. Veroboard area should be connection less unless providing vcc or gnd.
4) This one is far fetched, but will earn Hugh applause. If possible have another switch which puts the Arduino I reset mode and connects the xbee to the usb to allow xctu (or any other xbee controlling computer program) to configure and use the xbee.
5) trim the xtra long male berge pins sticking out of the bottom of the shield such that the pins are not exposed when connected to the Arduino.
6) Xbee breakouts would be better suited outside the xbee area to allow interfacing of the xbee gpio using jumpers cables.
