Digi Launches Europe’s First Multi-Channel Wireless Module To Automatically Change Channels If Interference Is Detected

Digi International (NASDAQ: DGII) today released the XBee 868LP, Europe’s first multi-channel 868 MHz wireless module with Listen Before Talk (LBT) and Adaptive Frequency Agility (AFA) technology allowing it to automatically change channels if interference is detected. The low cost, low-power module is based on Analog Device’s ADF7023 transceiver and is ideal for energy management, sensor deployments and other wireless networking applications.

“When numerous 868 MHz devices are running simultaneously, increased risk of radio interference exists,” said Larry Kraft, senior vice president of global sales and marketing, Digi International. “With the XBee 868LP, you don’t have to wait for someone to change channels when interference is detected. The XBee 868LP automatically finds the best channel to improve network performance.”

“Digi is a leading developer of wireless modules, and we are excited to work with Digi in bringing this solution to market,” said John Greichen, product line director, RF Group, Analog Devices. “Our ADF7023 RF transceiver provides best-in-class interference blocking, sensitivity performance and low current consumption to ensure a strong connection and reliable data transfer.”

The XBee 868 LP features 30 channels for additional interference immunity. It operates in the 863 – 870 MHz range and offers low power consumption drawing less than 2uA in sleep mode. The module offers up to four kilometers line-of-sight range and is easy to configure with Digi’s free utility, X-CTU, which reduces development time from months to weeks. The module also supports over the air (OTA) firmware updates, minimizing deployment risks.

Sharing a common hardware footprint, the popular XBee product line offers developers tremendous flexibility and is extremely easy to use. Pin-compatible and interchangeable multi-channel XBees are available for global deployments, including a 2.4GHz version for the U.S. and Australia and an 865 MHz module for India. A 900 MHz version will be available in Q3 2012.
