This is a page about setting up a simple network using an Arduino and a Digi XBee’s…

Equipment Used:

Arduino Uno r3 at Digi-Key
Arduino Wireless SD Shield at Digi-Key
Digi XBee-Pro at Digi-Key
Digi XBIB-U at Digi-Key

XBee-Pro Setup:

In this quick XBee-Pro quick networking example, we will be setting up a Coordinator and End Device with the PanID of 0x1234 in AT mode.

  • Digi’s X-CTU software used for programming XBee-Pro’s can be found here: X-CTU Software

XBee-Pro Coordinator:

XBee-Pro End Device:
