The XBee Shield simplifies the task of interfacing an XBee with your Arduino. This board mates directly with an Arduino Pro or USB board, and equips it with wireless communication capabilities using the popular XBee module. This unit works with all XBee modules including the Series 1 and Series 2 (and 2.5), standard and Pro version.


  • Double shield interfaces compatible with Arduino for easy cascading
  • 3 indicator (ON/SLEEP, RSSI, ASS) LED for XBee
  • Provide maximal 500mA under 3.3V
  • Full 2.54mm break out for XBee
  • Switchable of communication with FTDI-USB or Arduino with HardwareSerial or SoftwareSerial

(1)RSSI: Receiver Signal Strength Indication

(2)ASS : Association


PCB size 54.9mm X 58.8mm X 1.6mm
Indicators PWR State, DI, DO, RSSI, ON, ASS
Power supply 5V DC
Communication Protocol UART/XBee
RoSH Yes
