Digi Launches Breakthrough 865 MHz Multi-Channel XBee Module for India

Digi International (NASDAQ: DGII) today released the XBee 865LP, a breakthrough multi-channel 865 MHz wireless module that features up to 10 channels for superior interference immunity. The module improves network performance in “noisy” wireless environments and offers twice the range of competitive modules. The low cost, low-power module is based on Analog Device’s ADF7023 transceiver and is ideal for energy management, sensor deployments and other wireless networking applications.

“When numerous 865 MHz devices are running simultaneously, increased risk of radio interference exists,” said Larry Kraft, senior vice president of global sales and marketing, Digi International. “We are the only manufacturer with a module featuring 10 channels in India. The module’s powerful range also improves network performance by providing additional strength to penetrate walls and other barriers in commercial buildings.”

“Digi is a leading developer of wireless modules, and we are excited to work with Digi in bringing this solution to market,” said John Greichen, product line director, RF Group, Analog Devices. “Our ADF7023 RF transceiver provides best-in-class interference blocking, sensitivity performance and low current consumption to ensure a strong connection and reliable data transfer.”

The XBee 865LP features Listen Before Talk (LBT) and Adaptive Frequency Agility (AFA) technology allowing the module to automatically change channels if interference is detected. The module listens to the radio environment before transmitting and automatically shifts to a new channel when interference is detected. This patent-pending frequency scan occurs automatically and in a matter of microseconds, so there is no impact on performance.

The XBee 865 LP operates in the 865 – 867 MHz range and offers low power consumption drawing less than 2uA in sleep mode. The module offers up to four kilometres line-of-sight range and is easy to configure with Digi’s free utility, X-CTU, which reduces development time from months to weeks. The module also supports over the air (OTA) firmware updates further minimizing deployment risks.

Sharing a common hardware footprint, the popular XBee product line offers developers tremendous flexibility and is extremely easy to use. Pin-compatible and interchangeable multi-channel XBees are available for global deployments, including a 2.4GHz version for the U.S. and Australia and an 868 MHz module for Europe. A 900 MHz version will be available in Q3 2012.

The XBee 865LP module is available now for less than $15 in 10,000 quantities. Development kits are available now starting at $199 per kit. For more information, visit www.digi.com/xbee865.
