DigiMesh XBee Technology

Digi produces several families of DigiMesh XBee module. The most important feature in determining support within XBee adapters and gateways is the foot-print of the Xbee.

  • Most existing Digi Adapters and Gateways support only the 20-pin through-hole footprint, for which only DigiMesh at 2.4 Ghz and 900 Mhz is available.
  • Newer XBee families have moved to a SMT format and include 865 Mhz, 868 Mhz and 900 Mhz.

Existing DigiMesh Gateways

  • Digi ConnectPort X2
    • ConnectPort X2 - Industrial with DM 2.4 GHz to Ethernet (metal case, extra memory)
    • ConnectPort X2 - Industrial with DM 900 MHz to Ethernet (metal case, extra memory)
    • Note: as of March 2012 there are no X2 Commercial models with DigiMesh (lower cost, plastic case, less memory)
    • Note: as of March 2012 there are no X2 models with Wifi and DigiMesh
  • Digi ConnectPort X4
    • ConnectPort X4 - DigiMesh 2.4 GHz to Ethernet
    • ConnectPort X4 - DigiMesh 2.4 GHz to Ethernet & cellular (GSM/Edge)
    • ConnectPort X4 - DigiMesh 2.4 GHz to Ethernet & Wi-Fi
    • ConnectPort X4 - DigiMesh 900 MHz to Ethernet
    • ConnectPort X4 - DigiMesh 900 MHz to Ethernet & cellular (GSM/Edge)
    • Note: as of March 2012 there are no X4H or X4 IA models with DigiMesh
    • Note: as of March 2012 there are no X4 CDMA cellular models with DigiMesh
    • Note: as of March 2012 there is no SMT support within the X4, so no 865 Mhz or 868 Mhz DigiMesh support
  • Note: as of March 2012 there are no X5 vehicle models with DigiMesh

  • Note: as of March 2012 there is no DigiMesh XStick
  • Note: as of March 2012 there are no DigiMesh WatchPort Adapters

Can Digi ZigBee/XBee Products be Converted to DigiMesh?

Officially, No.

However, one can remove the 20-pin ZigBee XBee and replace it with a 20-pin DigiMesh XBee. This works fine with the RS-232/485/USB adapters, but may not work with adapters expecting analog signals because the ZigBee Xbee and DigiMesh XBee use different reference voltages. Your software will need to compensate for this, as well as the fact that there are some minor AT/DDO settings differences between Zigbee-XBee and DigiMesh-Xbee.
