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.
The DFRobot module is fully compatible with Arduino Leonardo. It has 20 digital inputs/outputs, 7 PWM channels, 12 analog inputs and popular communication interfaces. Additional slot allows you to directly attach XBee module, the colored connectors help you to identify the leads.
Xboard is a board compatible with Arduino, has an Ethernet port, slot for XBee modules and Atmega328 microcontroller known from version Uno. The device can be programmed via the Arduino IDE using an FTDI converter.
XBee Explorer is an easy to use board with the RS232 serial bus for the XBee module. The board works with all the XBee modules from series 1 and series 2.5, and Standard and Pro version. The board also supports DTR communication so you can reprogram and configure the XBee.
The Arduino module is based on Arduino Atmega328P, compatible with software Funnel. It has 32 kB of Flash memory, 2 kB of RAM, 14 digital of I/os, 6 of which can be used as PWM channels, 6 analog inputs, communication interfaces, battery connector li-pol, built in charger and socket for the XBee module.
The stand is primarily designed for Bee series modules, based on the ATMega 328. Also compatible with modules RFBee, wifi Bee, Xbee and Bluetooth Bee. There are two on-Board Grove connectors. Powered via lithium battery or USB connector. The module is also equipped with a system battery chargers, Li-Ion.
Standard connector for modules XBee with the Grove connectors. On the Board is a voltage regulator 3.3 V to power the XBee module, reset button and status LEDs. Connector XBee can be connected to the Arduino through the Base Shield overlay and gastro-grove.
Module CC2531 USB that allows you to integrate assistant for the home, in particular, AIS House, HomeAsistant, Domoticz with ZigBee devices. Module ZigBee2MQTT 554 supports devices from 108 suppliers. Thanks to this module you can control the ZigBee devices using the voice assistant in the Polish language.
Kit for the implementation of wireless communication for our project with the Arduino using the XBee modules 3. Modules support protocols 802.15.4, ZigBee and BLE. Interfaces UART and SPI enable you to communicate with other devices. Transmission distance up to 60 meters inside and up to 1200 metres outdoors in line of sight.
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.
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.
