Digi’s XStream-PKG RF modems can be configured in minutes to provide low-cost serial cable replacement between all types of electronic devices. XStream-PKG modems provide transmission ranges of up to 10 miles in a low-cost wireless solution. The modems are coupled with a DIP-switchable RS-232/422/485 interface board and regularly outperform more expensive RF modems.

Their outstanding receiver sensitivity enable XStream-PKG modems to yield two- to eight-times the range of competing modems, allowing customers to cover more ground with fewer devices. Additionally, XStream-PKG modems are easy to use, thereby reducing the complexity of data system development.

Available in RS-232/422/485 serial and USB variants, XStream-PKG modems can wirelessly connect a variety of devices across many applications including remote monitoring, building automation/security, industrial automation/SCADA, fleet management/asset tracking and sensor data capture in embedded systems.
