Compatible with ConnectPort X gateways and other devices using DigiMesh
XBee and XBee-PRO DigiMesh adapters deliver wireless connectivity to electronic devices using the DigiMesh protocol. This innovative, peer-to-peer networking protocol offers users increased stability by forming self-healing, self-discovering mesh networks. DigiMesh features dense network operation and support for sleeping routers, extending the operational life of battery dependent networks.
XBee and XBee-PRO DigiMesh adapters are available in 2.4 GHz and 900 MHz variants. Interface options include RS-232, RS-485, USB, digital and analog interfaces.
XBee-PRO 868 Adapters are also available, with interface options including RS-232, RS-485, and Digital/Analog interfaces. These adapters utilize a point to multi-point topology, with an outdoor LOS range of up to 80km. Ideal for challenging wireless environments where RF penetration and transmission distance are critical to the application.
