In this series, we use the same pinout and command set of the basic series but definitely with higher output power that reaches 60mW. The 802.15.4 stack is provided for these modules, or in other words, this is the basis for Zigbee that is required.
It gets wrapped up and converted into a serial command set that is easy and simple to use, which therefore allows communication to occur among microcontrollers, systems, and computers and much more in an efficient and reliable way. Note that point to point and multi-point networks are supported.
