XBee Adapter kit

Sold out
4.750 KD

This adapter board is designed to make adding wireless point-to-point or mesh networking easy. I looked at all the XBee adapter boards available and decided to design something better:

Onboard 3.3V regulator to cleanly power your XBee, up to 250mA
Level shifting circuitry means that its trivial to connect it to 5V circuitry such as an Arduino without risk of damage
Two LEDs, one for activity (RSSI), the other for power (Associate)
10-pin 2mm sockets included to protect the modem and allow easy swapping, upgrading or recycling
All the commonly used pins are brought out along the edge, making it easy to breadboard or wire up
Specifically created for use with an FTDI cable to connect to a computer via USB. This means that you can use or upgrade the adapter with a computer simply by plugging in a cable
Works with XBee series 1 and 2 as well as Series 1&2 Pro modules

Please note that the adapter does not include an XBee module, they must be purchased separately. If you want to connect this up to a computer's USB port you'll need a FTDI cable or FTDI friend (also not included)
