This is a simple to use, USB to serial base unit for the XBee line. This unit works with all XBee modules including the Series 1 and Series 2.5, standard and Pro version. Plug the unit into the XBee Explorer, attach a mini USB cable, and you will have direct access to the serial and programming pins on the XBee unit.
You get the red board only. XBee modules and USB cable sold elsewhere.
We recommend the book Building Wireless Sensor Networks
for explanation and practice of using XBee modules to build networks.
