With reduced power consumption and better range
DIGI International has launched a new XBee S2C 802.15.4 RF module for point-to-point wireless connectivity. This new variant is functionally and OTA compatible with the legacy XBee S1 802.15.4, and introduces several major advantages including reduced power consumption, better range and receive sensitivity, support for over-the-air firmware updates, and the addition of a SMT form factor.
In addition, as this product shares the same hardware as XBee S2C ZigBee module, customers can update the module firmware to either ZigBee PRO protocol (today) or to DigiMesh® protocol (later this year).
More details are listed in the DIGI datasheet. For further questions don’t hesitate to contact our product manager Joachim Strohschenk.
