Series 2.5 improves on the power output and data protocol. The Pro series has the same pinout and command set of the basic series with an increase output power of 50mW. 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.
Series 1 and Series 2.5 XBee modules have the same pinout. However, Series 1 modules cannot communicate with Series 2.5 modules. Likewise, 2.5 modules are incompatible with the newer ZB Series 2. You can, however, change the firmware of this ZNet Series 2.5 module to the new ZB Series 2 firmware.
