Xbee part numbers overview

As I am currently working on a project that involves XBee modules for wireless data transmission I had to look for the best type of module. There are a dazzling amount of different versions and plenty of websites that explain the the different lines of modules (Series 1, Series2, Pro vs normal versions,…). It was much harder to match the version and antenna type that I needed with the corresponding part number, and that is what I needed to order the correct one from suppliers such as Element14 and Mouser.

XBee S2 wire antenna

As a reference for future projects I created an overview with the different versions and different antenna options (RP-SMA, wire, PCB, chip and u.FL connector) and their corresponding part numbers. Hope it can help someone decide which one they need.

The sheet can also be downloaded as an odt and XLSX sheet.

As user Bombledmonk pointed out in this forum post on the EEVBlog forum, Digi has a nice comparison sheet on their website comparing the different lines of Xbee products.
