The Digi XBee SX 868 is an 868 MHz RF module for Europe. The module can run either a proprietary DigiMesh® or point-to multipoint networking protocol utilizing a low-power Silicon Labs microcontroller and an Analog Devices ADF7023 transceiver along with an integrated SAW filter which offers industry-leading interference blocking. The Digi XBee SX 868 operates between 863 MHz and 870 MHz, making it deployable in several regions throughout the world including approved European countries.
The Digi XBee SX 868 also leverages 868 MHz and surrounding frequencies for LBT + AFA (Listen Before Talk and Adaptive Frequency Agility). This significantly reduces interference by listening to the radio environment before any transmission starts, and automatically shifting to a new channel when interference is detected. This patented frequency scan occurs automatically and in a matter of microseconds so as not to impact performance.
The Digi XBee SX 868 RF module is a complete hardware and software solution that works directly out of the box. X-CTU, Digi’s easy-to-use RF configuration tool, reduces development time from months to weeks, ensuring your product gets to market fast.
