XTend® RF Modems

1 Watt/900 MHz stand-alone radio modems

  • Indoor/urban range up to 3000 feet
  • Outdoor line-of-sight range up to 40 miles (with high gain antenna)
  • Outstanding receiver sensitivity (-110 dBm @9600 bps)
  • Adjustable power output from 1 mW to 1 W; up to 4 W EIRP (with 6 dB antenna)
How to Buy

Digi's XTend-PKG RF modems provide everything you need for out-of-the-box serial cable replacement, enabling quick and inexpensive wireless connectivity of electronic devices across a broad range of applications. Simply feed data into one modem and the data is transported to the other end of a long range wireless link. Data security is provided by 256-bit AES encryption (128-bit AES is available outside of North America). If more advanced functionality is needed, the modems support an extensive set of AT and binary commands.

Available in multiple interface options, including RS-232/422/485 and USB, and with an optional NEMA 4-rated enclosure, XTend modems are ideally suited for remote monitoring, building automation/security, industrial automation/SCADA, fleet management/asset tracking and sensor data capture. For hazardous locations, a Class 1, Division 2 rated model is also available.
