XBee Pro 60mW PCB Antenna - Series 1 (802.15.4)

This is the very popular 2.4GHz XBee XBP24-ACI-001 module from Digi. The Pro series have the same pinout and command set of the basic series with an increase output power of 60mW! These modules take the 802.15.4 stack (the basis for Zigbee) and wrap it into a simple to use serial command set. These modules allow a very reliable and simple communication between microcontrollers, computers, systems, really anything with a serial port! Point to point and multi-point networks are supported.

XBee Pro 60mW PCB Antenna - Series 1 (802.15.4) Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: Programming

If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.

2 Programming

Skill Level: Rookie - You will need a better fundamental understand of what code is, and how it works. You will be using beginner-level software and development tools like Arduino. You will be dealing directly with code, but numerous examples and libraries are available. Sensors or shields will communicate with serial or TTL.

Customer Comments

  • How are these inside a ABS plastic case? Would the signal be degraded?

  • I see the datasheet(http://www.sparkfun.com/datasheets/Wireless/Zigbee/XBee-Datasheet.pdf),but I think it’s too long. Are there simple tutorials?

  • could I connect this to the xbee 1mW chip antenna listed below?

  • Would this have more, or less range than the wire antenna version?

    • I think the wire version is the best radiation pattern, but this one is a nice form factor and better than the chip version. For truly great range (better radiation pattern that is, they are all the same power level) the full RPSMA antennas are the way to go, but do require an extra purchase.
