Where Will You Use Your XBee?

More Than a Module

Your Devices - Wherever You Are

Don't let distance be a limiting factor. XBee modules give you the opportunity to simplify operations through cloud-based access to devices and their data.

Your Devices - Wherever You Are

It's About the Data

The Internet of Things is not about just connecting devices. It's about gathering data and putting that data to work to drive down costs, build efficiencies and improve overall customer engagement. XBee and Device Cloud let the data be the differentiator.

It's About the Data

One design. Global distribution.

In one design footprint, XBee modules support multiple wireless protocols and RF frequencies. This flexibility lowers manufacturing and engineering costs and offers a faster time to market.

One design. Global distribution.

Flexible Wireless Design

Deployment

XBee modules are available in a wide variety of RF frequencies used around the world. Using a single XBee design, developers can support frequencies including:

  • 2.4 GHz
  • 902 - 928 MHz
  • 865 - 868 MHz
Deployment

The XBee comes in two hardware footprints; Through-Hole and Surface Mount. This includes the 20-pin socket for TH, and 37 pads for the SMT, and these footprints take very little space on the PCB.

  • Common footprint makes XBee modules interchangeable
  • Ideal options for both low and high volume deployments
Protocol

XBee modules leverage multiple types of wireless protocols which are suitable for all sorts of different network architectures. Open Standards include ZigBee, 802.15.4, and Wi-Fi. Digi has also developed a proprietary protocol called DigiMesh, a widely deployed mesh networking protocol that reduces some of the complexity of the ZigBee protocol.

Gateways & Modems

Digi's programmable XBee Gateway connects XBee devices with cloud-based applications over Cellular, Wi-Fi or Ethernet. Featuring a simple Python-based development platform, the gateway enables custom applications to run locally while interfacing across existing Cellular/Wi-Fi/Ethernet networks for WAN connectivity to cloud-based software applications.

XBee RF Modems are a small, low-power solution that uses the XBee RF Module in an industrial enclosure to communicate with systems using RS-232, RS-485, and USB interfaces. They allow the user to easily make their existing wired systems wireless simply by connecting to this product.

Device Cloud

The XBee Platform is fully integrated with the Device Cloud by Etherios, allowing developers to create end-to-end solutions. This enables developers to create solutions with strong value propositions by bringing them to market in a cost-effective and timely manner.

  • Device Cloud by Etherios™ manages connectivity, configuration and software upgrades as well as application integration via published APIs
  • Device Cloud offers secure, scalable access to an unlimited number of remote assets and seamless web services integration from Digi gateways into customer back office applications
XCTU

XCTU is a free multi-platform application designed to enable developers to interact with XBee RF Modules through a simple-to-use graphical interface. It includes new tools that make it easy to set-up, configure, and test XBee RF Modules.

  • XCTU is a free, multi-platform application compatible with Windows and MacOS
  • Graphical Network View for simple wireless network configuration and architecture
  • API Frame Builder is a simple development tool for quickly building XBee API frames
  • Device Cloud integrated, allowing configuration and management of XBee devices anywhere in the world
