Need help to find suited Xbee module

Need help to find suited Xbee module

Need help to find suited Xbee module

I am trying to create a network of XBee with sensors at end nodes that send back data to coordinator Xbee periodically. I wish to set the Xbee modules in API mode and I learned from the internet how to do the same from online tutorials, etc.

However, now when I want to buy the Xbee modules I am completely confused. I want a series 2 Xbee ( Not PRO ). My confusion is -
Is the Xbee ZB same as XBee S2C?
what are the versions of Xbee available currently; I am confused as I see S2B, S2C, S2D, ZB and so much more. Please help me decide on an XBee
I see Digi has released the new programmable Xbee's. Can I use them like the old Xbees with an Arduino hooked to it? Which is preferable?

Anything at all is helpful. Thanks

RE: Need help to find suited Xbee module

start here. This is the current xbee models and comparison pdf. Look at range and protocol first, and than see if any have the features you are looking for.
