The XBee 868LP is an 868 MHz RF module for Europe. It is a high-performance, low-power module available at an extremely competitive price point. The XBee 868LP RF module can run either a proprietary DigiMesh® or point-to-multipoint networking protocol utilizing a low-power Energy Micro microcontroller and an Analog Devices ADF7023 transceiver, which offers industry-leading interference blocking. The XBee 868LP operates between 863 MHz and 870 MHz, making it deployable in several regions throughout the world including approved European countries and India by utilizing a software selectable channel masking feature.
The XBee 868LP for Europe is also the industry’s first RF module using 868 MHz and surrounding frequencies for LBT + AFA (Listen Before Talk and Adaptive Frequency Agility). This virtually eliminates interference by listening to the radio environment before any transmission starts, and automatically shifting to a new channel when interference is detected. This patent-pending frequency scan occurs automatically and in a matter of microseconds so as not to impact performance.
The XBee 868LP RF module is a complete hardware and software solution that works directly out of the box. X-CTU, Digi’s easy-to-use RF configuration tool, reduces development time from months to weeks, ensuring your product gets to market fast.
