Accessories XBee

It is easy to see that in recent years we witness many of the technological revolution. We are witnessing a huge change in the software segment, mobile apps and increasingly powerful processors with amazingly low power consumption. They also appear completely new technology, which several years ago no one even thought. For a great example of this industry can serve the Internet of Things (IoT). Increasingly, we hear about devices that will automatically exchange data with servers or the cloud (eng. cloud), and among themselves. Specially for such solutions, there is a lot of wireless standards, among which a special demand is the XBee technology.

IoT, or "wygadane device"

Communication between devices (Engl. M2M – Machine-To-Machine) saints triumphs in virtually all segments of our "digital life". As in any revolution, and the development of IoT has created a number of challenges that will face the designers of communication modules and new protocols. A distinctive feature of most of the decisions in the field of IoT is the need for relatively large transmission range (as not to unnecessarily limit the size of the network) while maintaining low energy consumption (which is important if the device and accessories powered by batteries). In addition, the transmission should be as safe (encryption), reliable (verification of correct data transmission), and the dimensions of the modules are as small as possible (in particular when they are installed in mobile devices or small sensors "distributed" to various locations of the test object). All these benefits can be attributed to a series of small, easy-to-implement modules XBee.

XBee – M2M in environmental and reliable option

Tile sizes the Xbee modules is less than 25x28 mm, and the connection with the target application, provide two rows goldpinów with a step of 2 mm. Each connector has 10 contacts, which give the user access to line power, reset, UART interface for communication with the microcontroller, as well as additional universal inputs/digital outputs (GPIO) and analog inputs (ADC). To facilitate both software development, and testing of prototypes using XBee, a series of accessories that allow you to quickly get started and test operation all of the functions of these elastic moduli.

In our offer you will find both basic packages and accessories XBee as convenient to use module evaluation or transition plate which allows You to immediately begin working with modules, no design for this purpose its own PCB or time consuming connection of individual lines using wires and plates of the prototype. Of course, the easiest way to create the test environment-is the use of tiles DFRobot Leonardo XBee connector – simply slide the selected XBee module into the holder and you can start preparing a program in the Arduino IDE. Another option is the use of lining XBee Shield for Arduino or USB Converter XBee USB Adapter v2 production DFRobot. For people who want to implement the modules in their own devices, we also have essential accessories, including compatible goldpin connectors 2 mm antenna U. FL connector or XBee adapters in the form of stands with "full-size" goldpin connectors 2.54 mm.
