xbee Pro S2B & xbee pro shield

Hello !
i bought two (pro Sxbee 2B) and two (xbee pro shields) , i want to know how to communicate two arduino uno together by using (xbee pro s2b)
i don't know how to configure it or how to use it perfectly
i need an guide or easy examples to learn how to communicate two arduino uno by xbee can any one help me please ?!
thanks

Have you heard of Google ?

i asked here to fine the right way to learn
anyway many thanks to you

The Arduino.cc forum is a premier learning spot, but only a small percent of users give-back by working the forums and being a subject-matter-expert. It is difficult work. As such, the forum etiquite is to research your question first, educate yourself, read the forum rules on posting, and then articulate precisely. All of this helps us to help you and then quickly move on to another needed person. Social interaction and nice are for the Bar Sport part if the forum.

Welcome and take light critism as positive input.

pause and read the rules for posting.

here is one that will help you get answers.

  1. Make a meaningful subject line

Try to summarize your problem with a helpful and informative subject line. Helpful subjects draw in people who might know the answer. Unhelpful ones are likely to be skipped.

Examples of unhelpful subject lines:

Noob here, help needed
Help me, quickly!
Got error
Lost, help me
Problem with my circuit
No idea what I am doing

here is a link to help you help us to help you.

I'm sorry for this mistake i will read the rules now ..
Thanks for guide me and for the help :slight_smile:

Don't forget Google....

If you hang around the forum for long, you will notice a certain population of members that apparently were potty trained on an electric chair. The best way to search the forum is go to the Google advanced search and put the below forum link in the "site or domain:" box, then search for the desired key words.

If you hang around the forum for long, you will notice a certain population of members that apparently can’t spare 20 seconds to use Google with the word “arduino” in front of the phrase describing their topic. This is epidemic to the point where 20 to 40% of the questions would bring up at least 10 arduino or forum related links , yet the first stop is invariably the forum. I don’t think the question “Have you heard of Google ?” is rude or unreasonable. It is a simple question and nothing more. One might wonder why someone would ask that question. References to potty training or electric chairs doesn’t change the fact that Google is a very effective tool and it always the first place I go for information. I wouldn’t ask someone else to do something I wouldn’t do myself.

Now

i understand this steps and doing it correctly but when i change the arduino board power supply from the usb cable to adapter the receive and send data stop
can any one tell me why that or what is the Potential error here?
Thanks

Did you move the jumper to the xbee setting as described in the tutorial ?

Once you've uploaded the Physical Pixel sketch and made sure that it's working, unplug the first Arduino board from the computer. Switch the jumpers to the Xbee setting (i.e. place each on the center pin and the pin farthest from the edge of the board). Now, you need to upload a sketch to the other board. Make sure its jumpers are in the USB setting. Then upload the following sketch to the board:

void setup()

{
  Serial.begin(9600);
}

void loop()
{
  Serial.print('H');
  delay(1000);
  Serial.print('L');
  delay(1000);
}



When it's finished uploading, you can check that it's working with the Arduino serial monitor. You should see H's and L's arriving one a second. Turn off the serial monitor and unplug the board. **Switch the jumpers to the Xbee setting.** Now connect both boards to the computer. After a few seconds, you should see the LED on the first board turn on and off, once a second. (This is the LED on the Arduino board itself, not the one on the Xbee shield, which conveys information about the state of the Xbee module.) If so, congratulations, your Arduino boards are communicating wirelessly. This may not seem that exciting when both boards are connected to the same computer, but if you connect them to different computers (or power them with an external power supply - being sure to switch the power jumper on the Arduino board), they should still be able to communicate.

It sounds like you are not following these instructions.

**Switch the jumpers to the Xbee setting.Now connect both boards to the computer. **

I do that and the xbee work when the both xbee connected to the same computers
but when i connect one of them to the adapter it doesn't work !!
The adapter output voltage is 6.5 V it should be higher?
Thanks

BOB91,

I was simple in posting the rules.

Try to summarize your problem with a helpful and informative subject line. Helpful subjects draw in people who might know the answer. Unhelpful ones are likely to be skipped.

please read this a few times to understand the purity of the advise.

best advise you will get in this forum.

once you understand that the subject line will draw the eyes of experts in your question.

please go back and change your initial post subject line.
think about what experts you would like to have look at your question.

something with xbee ?

quite honestly, many people will look and out of principal, will not reply on topics that are not on topic.

this forum works great when you ask the right question.

BOB91:
The adapter output voltage is 6.5 V it should be higher?

If you're connecting that to the Arduino's power socket so that it is brought down to 5V by the onboard regulator, the minimum voltage required is about 7V. See the Input Voltage section on this page:

If you supply less than 7V then the nominal 5V output may be less than a true 5V which can cause things to misbehave.

The adapter output voltage is 6.5 V it should be higher?
Thanks

Yes, the ac/dc adaptor (walwart) you are using is too low. The lowest adaptor recommended is 7V but most people use 9V dc.
The regulator needs at least 2V above the 5V output voltage of the regulator so 5+2=7V.
I'm not sure that is your problem yet with the sketch. I have no personal experience with X-bees so you'll have to wait for someone else to address your question, which is probably never going to happen because you haven't changed the title of your post as suggested several times. I don't know if we can help you if are going to continue to ignore our advice. Maybe you do need help.

I guess perhaps the Op does not know how to edit the title...

  1. Go to your first post
  2. Select Modify
  3. Delete the current subject title, retype an appropriate one,
  4. Save the edited version with the Save button

@Ray I'm sorry
i was opened the internet from the mobile and i can't deal well with the internet through the mobile.

and this is my first time to use arduino forums i know i should read the rule first but this problem makes me crazy and i'm search in google to help me but i'm find many ways to do the connect between two xbee that makes me Confused.
so i asked here to find the right guide that help me .
any way i'm sorry and Thanks for your patience.

@ raschemmel
thanks for trying help me :slight_smile:

@Ray I'm sorry

Yes, I do understand! I am on as portable Android device at this moment and editing is awkward to very difficult.

but this problem makes me crazy and i'm search in google to help me but i'm find many ways to do the connect between two xbee that makes me Confused.

My experience is solely with the RF12B.
