XBee Wireless Communication Starter Kit
Xbee Wireless Communication Starter Kit
provides everything you need to harness the powerful and versatile technology of Zigbee 802.15.4 wireless communication. Do you want to free your robot of wires? Send sensory data back to your PC? Control your robot from up to 300 feet away without having to worry about interference issues inherit in most 2.4ghz technology? Zigbee technology is the answer. From simply 'cutting' your serial cable, to creating a wireless mesh network perfect for swarm robotics, you can take your robotics projects to the next level with Zigbee!
[2x] XBee 1mW Communication Module
This is the very popular 2.4GHz XBee module from Digi (formally Maxstream). These modules take the
stack (the basis for Zigbee) and wrap it into a simple to use serial command set. These modules allow a very reliable and simple communication between microcontrollers, computers, systems, really anything with a serial port! Point to point and multi-point networks are supported.
3.3V @ 50mA
250kbps Max data rate
1mW output (+0dBm)
300ft (100m) range
Fully FCC certified
6 10-bit ADC input pins
8 digital IO pins
Local or over-air configuration
AT or API command set
XBee Explorer USB
This is a simple to use, USB to serial base unit for the XBee line. This unit works with all XBee modules including the Series 1 and Series 2.5, standard and Pro version. Plug the unit into the XBee Explorer, attach a mini USB cable, and you will have direct access to the serial and programming pins on the XBee unit.
This is a must have unit if you are using Xbee communication with the Robotics Connection
Serializer WL Robot Controller
, as it provides the PC side interface to the Xbee link. This unit also allows for configuration of the Xbee modules via the X-CTU software.
XBee Explorer Regulated
The XBee Explorer Regulated takes care of the 3.3V regulation, signal conditioning, and basic activity indicators (Power, RSSI and DIN/DOUT activity LEDs). It translates the 5V signals to 3.3V so that you can connect a 5V (down to 3.3V) system to any XBee module. The board was conveniently designed to mate directly with Arduino Pro boards and with the FTDI Basic boards for
and USB based configuration. This board is perfect for adding Xbee communication to your robot as it makes them completely 5v compatible in a very small package.
This unit works with all XBee modules including the Series 1 and Series 2.5, standard and Pro versions. Plug an XBee into this breakout and you will have direct access to the serial and programming pins on the XBee unit and will be able to power the XBee with 5V.
A to Mini B USB Cable
This USB A plug to Mini 5 pin (one ID Pin) plug is designed for USB peripherals such as cellular phones, digital devices or PDA. It provides the connection from your USB Xbee Explorer to your PC.
