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 serial 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 for wireless bootloading and USB based configuration.

This unit works with all XBee modules including the Series 1 and 2, 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.

This board comes fully populated with 3.3V regulator (5V max input), XBee socket, four status LEDs, and level shifting. In the latest revision the diode level shifter is replaced with a more robust MOSFET level shifter. This board does not include and XBee module. XBee modules sold below.

Perfect with a Meduino Pro Mini Enhancement
Monday, 10 February 2014  |  James

The pin layout on the short edge aligns perfectly with the pins on my Meduino Pro Mini Enhancement allowing it to connect via headers. DIO pin 3 is also connected to the "green" pin to allowing remote reset and auto upload over xbee wireless (tested and w

You would connect your power to this board via the 5V and Gnd pins at the top of the board(near the regulator). According to the regulator's datasheet this can be as high as 16V but to reduce heat at the regulator I would use as close to 5V as possible. R

Power supply?
Saturday, 7 September 2013  |  Bert

Hi, I read supply '16v max';So I guess that I can safely power the xbee explorer with a 9v battery? No heat issues? (I use Xbee series 2, 2mW)On which pins should I plug the battery? i guess 11 (gnd) and 10 (vdo)?What voltage will I get on the '5v
