This Arduino XBee module include one piece of expansion board of arduino,and one XBee Pro module:
this Arduino XBee module,we can achieve a simple two crunodal ZigBee network,achieve wireless communication between Arduino. ZigBee also support complex network organizing by many crunodes.
XBee module need corresponding set before working.we can finish setting by X-CTU link Arduino XBee shield to Arduino, then place two jumper wire of Arduino XBee sheield on one side of USB, if this ,X-CTU can deploy XBeeby module by USB of Arduino:
after linking Arduino to PC by USB cable, run X-CTU sortware. first choose corresponding communication port in "PC Settings",and set parameter. XBee module tolerant set is:9600,8N1.
click"Test/Query" button,to test whether linking to XBee module or not.
turn to "Modem Configuration". click "Read" in "Modem Parameters and Firmware" read current parameter of XBee module,then read change "Channel"to "C" in "Networking & Security",change"PAN ID" to "1234".
another Arduino XBee module are set as the same.
after two of Arduino XBee finish setting，run two X-CTU and chose different communication port in"PC Settings"control two Arduino XBee modules separately. In "Terminal"of X-CTU ,we need to input data of XBee module by hands.after receiving these data , it is sent to another XBee module automatically,and display in the "Terminal"of X-CTU. blue standard for emitting data, red standard for receiving data:
There are multiple versions of the Arduino board. The current basic board, the Duemilanove, uses the Atmel ATmega328 (datasheet). The older Diecimila, and the first run of Duemilanoves used the Atmel ATmega168 (datasheet), while older boards use the ATmega8 (datasheet). The Arduino Mega is based on the ATmega1280 (datasheet).

Duemilanove - This is the latest revision of the basic Arduino USB board. It connects to the computer with a standard USB cable and contains everything else you need to program and use the board. It can be extended with a variety of shields: custom daughter-boards with specific features. details
Diecimila - This is the previous revision of the basic Arduino USB board. details
Nano - A compact board designed for breadboard use, the Nano connects to the computer using a USB Mini-B cable. details
Mega - A larger, more powerful Arduino board, shield compatible with the Duemilanove and Diecmila. details
Bluetooth - The Arduino BT contains a bluetooth module that allows for wireless communication and programming. It is compatible with Arduino shields. details
LilyPad - Designed for wearable application, this board can be sewn onto fabric, and is a stylish purple. details
Mini - This is the smallest Arduino board. It works well in a breadboard or for applications in which space is at a premium. It connects to the computer using the Mini USB Adapter. details
Mini USB Adapter - This board converts a USB connection into 5 volt, GND, TX and RX lines that you can connect to the Arduino Mini or other microcontroller. details
Pro - This board is designed for advanced users who want to leave a board embedded in a project: it's cheaper than a Diecimila and easily powered by a battery, but requires additional components and assembly. details
Pro Mini - Like the Pro, the Pro Mini is designed for advanced users requiring a low-cost, small board and willing to do some extra work. details
Serial - It's a basic board that uses RS232 as an interface to a computer for programming or communication. This board is easy to assemble even as a learning exercise. details (including Schematics and CAD Files)
Serial Single Sided - This board is designed to be etched and assembled by hand. It is slightly larger than the Diecimila, but still shield compatible. details

The hardware index lists all the Arduino boards made and the differences between them.
Shields are boards to be mounted on top of the Arduino board and that extend the functionality of Arduino to control different devices, acquire data, etc.
Xbee Shield - This shield allows multiple Arduino boards to communicate wirelessly over distances up to 100 feet (indoors) or 300 feet (outdoors) using the Maxstream Xbee Zigbee module. details
Motor Shield - This shield allows an Arduino board to control DC motors and read encoders. details
Ethernet Shield - This shield allows an Arduino board to connect to the internet. details
