This is the Xbee 1mW Wire Antenna - Series 1 XBP24-BZ7WIT-004 module from Digi. It is Easy to use. Just power up and start communicating. Digi XBee 802.15.4 modules are the easiest-to-use, most reliable and cost-effective RF devices we’ve experienced. The 802.15.4 XBee modules provide two friendly modes of communication – a simple serial method of transmit/receive or a framed mode providing advanced features. XBees are ready to use out of the package, or they can be configured through the X-CTU utility or from your microcontroller. These modules can communicate point to point, from one point to a PC, or in a mesh network.
You only need to choose an antenna style (PCB or wire) and power level (1 mW for up to 300 ft). The PCB antenna version provides a lower profile footprint for applications with limited space while the wire antenna version allows for more flexibility in adjusting for optimal range at the same output power.
- Outdoor range up to 300 feet (90 m) line of sight
- Indoor range up to 100 feet (30 m)
- Data rate up to 250 Kbps
- 2.4 GHz frequency band (accepted world-wide)
Note: Only series 1 modules can work with series 1 type modules you cannot mix up series 1 and series 2 modules to setup communication.
