Replacement: WRL-11216. The new version of this unit ships with a PCB trace antenna instead of a chip antenna. This page is for reference only.

Description: 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.

Features:

  • 3.3V @ 215mA
  • 250kbps Max data rate
  • 60mW output (+18dBm)
  • 1 mile (1500m) range
  • Built-in antenna
  • Fully FCC certified
  • 6 10-bit ADC input pins
  • 8 digital IO pins
  • 128-bit encryption
  • Local or over-air configuration
  • AT or API command set

  • I don’t think I’ll need 50 of these suckers….. but thanks for allowing me too!

  • If there’s a limit of 5/customer, why list pricing for 10-99 and 100+?

  • withdrawn comment

  • Only got about 100m (300ft), line of sight. What could I be doing wrong?

  • Hi, is this one compatible with the old one version “50mW” ??

  • Have anyone tested the range of this one? How does it compare with the XBee Pro 60mW U.FL + Adapter + 2.4GHz Duck Antenna RP-SMA - Large ?

    • I’ll second that question. Thinking about getting a pair of these for a longer range project. Obviously I dont need a mile range but would like to know what real world range is.

      • So the 1 mile range does not mean it is full serial at 1 mile, it means that in perfect conditions eventually something will get through. I get about 400 feet at 9600 baud before I start dropping data outside, really dissapointing.

  • Hi
    Is it possible to use XBee Pro for Wireless Bootloading to Arduino Fio?

    • This is sort of a late reply, but apparently people have had trouble using XBee Pros with the Fio because they draw more power than the Fio can supply, and people haven’t found a way to easily give it its own power supply. Hope this helps!

      • Thanks for the reply. What about changing the voltage regulator on the Fio board to a more powerful one? I think that would fix the problem. But it would probably need a heat sink, wouldn’t it? and than the board isn’t that compact anymore…

  • Hi I just got this up and running with the explorer and the sparkfun shield. I am able to transmit serial commands over the xbee but I can’t upload new sketches which doesn’t make sense to me. Can someone please help me? Thank you!
