The Onion Omega XBee Wireless(OOXB) is perhaps one of our most powerful communication adapters.

Add XBee communications to any of our Onion Omega 1 and 2 devices, greatly expanding communication options. Expand your Onion Omega controller to include industrial wireless options from Digi.com, such as ZigBee, 802.15.4, or our favorite industrial wireless: S3B. The OOXB is also compatible with select XB communication adapters from ControlAnything.com, such as USB, RS-232, Bluetooth, WiFi, and Ethernet (Be sure to ask ControlAnything.com for compatibility of Ethernet modules!).

The Onion Omega Wireless(OOXB) overlay shield brings the power of XB communications to your Onion Omega device, as there are now many other manufacturers supporting the XB footprint.

NOTE: The Wireless Shield For Onion Omega (OOXB adapter) provides a power solution as well as TX and RX( Port 1) data connections to the Onion Omega 1 and 2. No other Wireless pins are mapped to the Onion Omega.

Companion - Purchasing Limits Apply

These products are sold at a low price in an effort to help our customers gain connectivity to our product line.  Companion products are intended to be paired and used with other products we manufacture, as they perform no useful function on their own.  Any orders that contain only companion products will be canceled to prevent short supply.  Most notably, products found on our web site for $5.95 or lower are typically defined as companion products (though there are a few exceptions).

As a general guideline, we allow one companion product to be purchased for every device with a silicon chip that has an I²C start address, with a maximum of 3 companion products of a single part number.  For instance, you can purchase a Raspberry Pi I²C adapter and a Temperature sensor without any problems.  You can purchase 3 I²C adapters and 3 temperature sensors without any problems.  You can purchase 3 I²C adapters and 20 temperature sensors, but no more than 3 I²C adapters of the same part number. 

Order Limits:

  • We will allow up to ONE companion product without any silicon based controllers per order.
  • We have placed a maximum quantity limit of 3 pieces per companion part number.

Please help us balance the production costs of our low-cost devices and support our company by purchasing devices to go with our companion products, this is the only way we can stay in business.


This is a general purpose I²C device compatible with all computing platforms and IoT technologies, including Raspberry Pi, BeagleBone, Arduino, Particle, BridgeX5, and many more.  All ControlEverything.com devices support a strict +5V I²C Bus standard.
