Digi XBee XR 868 Development Kit

Complete Digi XBee XR 868 development platform operates in the 863-870 MHz range, delivering superior performance and interference immunity at 868 MHz

The Digi XBee® XR 868 Development Kit features the Digi XBee 868 RF MHz module with RF pad antenna and a Digi XBee development board. The module is a compact and reliable solution supporting deployment of long-range connectivity applications in the European region. The pre-certified module operates between 863 and 870 MHz in compliance with European standards. The module supports both point-to-point and mesh networking protocols, with a line-of-sight range of over 14 kilometers. It is well suited for agriculture and energy applications where long-distance communication is required.

Intelligent interference management

Digi XBee XR 868 also leverages 868 MHz and surrounding frequencies for LBT + AFA (Listen Before Talk and Adaptive Frequency Agility). This significantly reduces interference by listening to the radio environment before any transmission starts, and automatically shifting to a new channel when interference is detected. This patented frequency scan occurs automatically and in a matter of microseconds so as not to impact performance.
