Digi XBee? DigiMesh? 2.4

Wireless Mesh Networking RF Module

  • Dynamic peer-to-peer DigiMesh protocol
  • No configuration needed for out-of-the-box RF communications
  • 2.4 GHz globally deployable frequency
  • Self-healing and discovery for network stability

Overview
Digi XBee DigiMesh 2.4 delivers end-point device connectivity with a globally deployable 2.4 GHz transceiver. These modules use the innovative DigiMesh networking protocol. This innovative, peer-to-peer protocol offers users added network stability through self-healing, dense network operation and with a very low housekeeping overhead, it is capable of extending the operational life of battery dependent networks.

Digi XBee modules are ideal for low-power, low-cost applications. Digi XBee-PRO modules are power-amplified versions of Digi XBee modules for extended-range applications. Part of the Digi XBee family of RF products, these modules are easy-to-use, share a common hardware footprint, and are fully interoperable with other XBee products utilizing the same technology. Module users have the ability to substitute one Digi XBee for another with minimal development time and risk.

The updated Digi XBee S2C DigiMesh 2.4 module is built with the SiliconLabs EM357 SoC and offers improved power consumption, support for over-the-air firmware updates, and provides an upgrade path to IEEE 802.15.4 or ZigBee? mesh protocols if desired.
