Digi International’s XBee® SX RF Modems

Digi International’s SX RF modems use 1-Watt industrial-grade 900 MHz long range SX radio technology for wireless cable replacement applications. They are flexible, easy to use, and utilize DigiMesh® wireless networking protocol, with redundant mesh network operation and support for low-power sleeping nodes. For applications that don’t require mesh network architecture customers can configure the modem to operate in simple point-to-point or point-to-multipoint mode. With ideal RF line-of-sight range estimated up to 65 miles and strong interference blocking, these modems are ideal for applications requiring a reliable, redundant wireless cable replacement over longer ranges.
