The 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.

Manufacturer part number: XB24-AWI-001

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. And, all of the modules sold by Parallax are compatible with one another!

Choosing the right XBee module is best accomplished by taking a look at the XBee Comparison Chart. You only need to choose an antenna style (chip or wire) and power level (1mW for up to 300ft and 60 mW for up to 1 mile).You need an adapter board for each module.

Even if you are communicating point to point without a PC, we still recommend that you always have at least one XBee USB Adapter Board (#32400). With this board you can more easily configure and test the XBee module prior to putting it in a point to point application. Also, always have at least one of our XBee Adapter Boards for each XBee module you purchase.

Because XBee modules operate at 3.3V, Propeller developers will be able to use any XBee module and XBee adapter with any of our Propeller chips. Non 3.3V microcontrollers like the BASIC Stamp will need a 3.3V power supply and signal buffer chip for communication to the XBee module. 

Always have at least one of our XBee Adapter Boards (#32403) for each XBee module you purchase.
