XBEE SERIES 1 S1
These are very popular ISM 2.4GHz XBee modules 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.
S1 series modules work on 802.15.4 protocol & S2 series work on ZIGBEE protocol.
You cannot mix S1 with S2. S1 can talk only to S1.
XBee modules can give communication range of 30 meters indoor or 100 meters outdoor. This module is ideal for PC to Robot communication or MCU to control other devices wirelessly.
This ZigBee wireless device can be directly connected to the serial port (at 3.3V level) of your microcontroller. By using a logic level translator it can also be interfaced to 5V logic (TTL) devices having serial interface. This module supports data rates of up to 115kbps. It has indoor range of 30 meters and outdoor RF line-of-sight range of up to 100 meters.
