The XBee Socket Shield for Arduino allows you to connect an XBee compatible wireless module to your Arduino.
XBee is a family of small form factor radio modules. A variety of XBee compatible wireless modules exist including ZigBee, WiFi and Bluetooth. This shield supports XBee Standard and Pro Series 1, 2 and 2.5 wireless modules.
The XBee Socket Shield allows you to attach compatible XBee modules to your Arduino. The shield provides six LEDs to assist with diagnostics: RSSI Receive Signal Strength Indication, ASS Association indicator, On/Sleep mode indicator, send and receive indicators and a power indicator.
A set of jumpers are used to assign the XBee RX/TX serial lines to a selection of Arduino I/O pins. Another jumper allows the board to be used with 3.3V or 5V Arduino compatible microcontrollers. Stackable headers support additional shields and provide access to the Arduino pins.
