The XStick is a USB peripheral adapter that provides short-range wireless connectivity to a low-power mesh or multipoint network in a familiar, easy-to-carry form factor. Housing Digi's XBee® module, this off-the-shelf adapter provides instant wireless connectivity from a laptop or PC, allowing network configuration, diagnostics or device monitoring to be conducted locally.
Two versions of the XStick are available - the XStick ZB (mesh version) and the XStick 802.15.4 (multipoint version). The XStick ZB is configured to behave as a coordinator within a ZigBee network.
The XStick can be plugged directly into the USB port of a laptop or PC or connected using an extension cable (must be three meters or less in length). The XStick is USB powered and does not require batteries or a power adapter.
