Grove - Bee Socket is an adapter of Xbee serials that can connect wireless modules with Arduino, such as WIFI Bee, RF Bee, Bluetooth Bee, etc. It is Arduino-compatible and more effective to conduct operations of peer-to-peer and mesh networks run by wireless modules. Regulator CJT1117 guarantees Xbee of stable 3.3 voltage. LEDs can perform the work modes of the grove clearly. Grove-Bee Socket has the same functions as XBee Shield. Grove-Bee Socket and Arduino are connected by cables, and XB Shield is a standard adapter that can plug into Arduino.
- Standard Bee Socket and Grove Interface
- Onboard a 3.3V regulator to power your XBee
- Level Shifting circuit
- Reset Button for Bee modules
- LEDs for Bee operations
Connecting various Xbee series modules to Arduino
J1: Grove Interface, used for connecting to UART Interface of Arduino/Seeeduino.
J2, J3: Breakout connection for every pin of Xbee.
J4,J5: Bee sockets
U1: CJT1117 IC, Low dropout linear regulator. Used for power 3.3V for XBee modules.
