“The XBee-PRO 900HP is ideal for extended-range applications such as field irrigation, tank monitoring, street lighting control, energy distribution automation and other applications,” said Larry Kraft, senior vice president of global sales and marketing, Digi International. “With the iDigi Device Cloud, customers can deploy and maintain XBee-PRO 900HP end points easily and efficiently.”
The XBee-PRO 900HP features data rates of up to 200 Kbps. It includes a patent-pending channel selectivity algorithm allowing the module to discern between desired and undesired channel communications quickly, which increases throughput, interference immunity and battery life. Additionally, the module features a software selectable channel mask for clear channel operation and advanced sleep modes to enable efficient battery usage in battery powered applications.
The XBee-PRO 900HP can be configured and maintained easily through the iDigi Device Cloud when coupled with a ConnectPort X gateway. The iDigi Device Cloud provides the infrastructure required to access, control, configure and upgrade unlimited devices securely over the Internet. XBee products are easy to use and share a common hardware footprint.
Available in a variety of protocols for different applications, one XBee can be substituted for another with minimal development time or risk. XBee modules are pre-certified for use in multiple countries, further reducing development costs.
The XBee-PRO 900HP is available now for $39MSRP. Compatible ConnectPort Xgateways for iDigi Device Cloud connectivity will be available in Q2 2013.
