Description: This is the very popular 2.4GHz XBee module from Digi. 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 very reliable and simple communication between microcontrollers, computers, systems, really anything with a serial port! Point to point and multi-point networks are supported.

  • Hello,

    I am trying to get setup with some XBees, and had some questions. Would the “Interface Cable RP-SMA to U.FL” cable ( and a “2.4GHz Duck Antenna RP-SMA - Large” antenna ( work for this XBee?

    Thanks, Nick

  • If three of these are powered up in their default transparent mode and serial input is provided at one will it show up on both others?

  • Isnt this a series 1?
    why it says “Point to point and multi-point networks are supported."
    is this not only for series 2 or over??

    • There are two firmware settings you can flash this to an XB24 802.15.4 firmware and a XB24-DM DIGIMESH 2.4 firmware. Digimesh is point to point and better for general hobby use than Zigbee (series 2) in my opinion. Be careful flashing firmware, you should double check that you have an adapter capable of flashing firmware. (it needs all 4 preferably 5 serial lines to flash, not just the TX and RX like most arduino shields have.)

  • do I need to purchase an antenna to go in the U.FL socket? I purchased this thinking it had an antenna on it but found it transmitted 1-2 feet. Am I missing something?

  • hello
    kindly guide me about XBEE transmitter and receiver suitable communication with each other
    thank and waiting for reply..!

  • Is it possible to share an internet connection with one of these things?

    • It is not advisable to surf the internet with these modules. But to send small packets of data from any control signal device is recommended. To connect an internet gateway that allows you to pass the serial data 232 to ethernet and the internet cloud.
