The XBee-PRO XSC 900 MHz RF module features two times the throughput and 20 times less current draw than the previous XSC module, making it ideal for long-range sensor applications. The RF module features an ADF7023 transceiver from Analog Devices, delivering best-in-class distances up to 28 miles Line-of-Sight (LOS), along with low power consumption, drawing less than 2.5 uA in power down.
The latest XBee-PRO XSC (S3B hardware) is firmware compatible with the legacy 9XStream® and the legacy XBee-PRO XSC modules.
Digi’s free X-CTU configuration utility simplifies the configuration of the XSC module, which requires no programming. In addition, it can be easily configured via a simplified AT command set. The RF modules are pre-certified for North America and Australia, further reducing development costs and time to market.
