XBee 2mW Chip Antenna - Series 2 (ZigBee Mesh) (Sale)

Replacement:WRL-11217. Chip antennas are out, Trace antennas are in. This page is for reference only.

This is the XBee XB24-Z7CIT-004 module from Digi. Series 2 improves on the power output and data protocol. Series 2 modules allow you to create complex mesh networks based on the XBee ZB ZigBee mesh firmware. 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.

These are essentially the same hardware as the older Series 2.5, but have updated firmware. They will work with Series 2.5 modules if you update the firmware through X-CTU.

Note: If you are looking for a simple point-to-point configuration, you might want to try the Series 1 instead. The Series 2 requires considerable setup and configuration. We highly recommend Building Wireless Sensor Networks as a guide for setting up mesh networks.

Note: Series 1 and Series 2 XBee modules have the same pin-out. However, Series 1 modules cannot communicate with Series 2 modules.

Note: If you are using these outside of the United States, please check with your local laws regarding radio communication.

Note: Due to recent flooding in Thailand and the subsequent damage to the Digi factories, there may be long lead times on all XBee products and shortages until they recover from the damage.

    For the life of me, I cannot get my two 2.5 radios to work properly. I am able to get the AT mode, straight serial, but I wanted to use the end device to transmit the ADC inputs X times a second. Is there a tutorial on this? Also, X-CTU is showing my xbee radios as uing the "XB24-ZB" radio firmware, is this correct?

    IT would be really cool if there was a module like this that could be programmed.

    Maybe I'm not reading the Datasheet correctly, but I can't find out how much voltage the analog inputs can handle. Does anyone know? I'd like to input a 0-5 volt signal but since the Xbee runs on 3.3v I'm afraid that's too much.

    The image is outdated. All new module comes with the S2 silkscreen.

      Is this confirmed? Could sparkfun update the image? It's misleading

  • nn2 / about 11 years ago / 1

    if i wanna connect the module with computer, do i need to connect this module with another micro controller? Or can we connect straightly to the computer?

      This will do the trick.
