Note: This product does not include an XBee module. It is a carrier board that accepts XBee series 1 or series 2 modules and provides an RS232 DTE interface.
This is a DTE (Data Terminal Equipment) RS232 serial module with a male DB9 connector. You can connect this device to any DCE (Data Communication Equipment) such as Modems or any DCE device equipped with a female DB9 connector. By using a Null Modem crossover cable (see add-on accessories below) you can also connect this module to DTE equipment like a PC.
Using the 990.002 USB XBee Board on a PC and this module on the device, you can easily transform any serial cable into a wireless connection with a maximum speed of 115K Baud.
You can use any of the Series1 or Series2 XBee modules and make a reliable and fast serial network in minutes.
Three useful LEDs show the TX activity of the Board and the signal strength (RSSI). The third LED shows the associated status. You can change the function of some LED in the XBee EEPROM. The feature connector is useful to program the XBee or for powering external 3.3V devices. You can also use this module as serial level converter for 3.3V TTL signals.
