Watchdog timer reset in Xbee S6B module

Whats the time for Watchdog Timer reset in Xbee Digi S6B module if digi module locks up?

After analyzing the packet, I can see xbee entering to watchdog reset (Frame Type: 0x8A, data = 01) after 5 minutes of module lock up and then joining the Access point in few seconds (Frame Type: 0x8A, data = 02).

I am sending packets to the server over WiFi (Digi) every 2 seconds. Is this the reason why digi stops responding and resumes functioning after watchdog reset?

Much Appreciated.

Sending data once every two seconds is not why a module will lock up. Sending bad API frames, power issues, etc is what will cause a module to stop responding.
