Cost-effective integrated mobile radio modem with low power consumption and long range
Digi Elektronik, the provider of future-proof complete solutions, presents Digi's first XBee Cellular NB-IoT embedded modem. This is suitable for smart metering (electricity, water, gas), precision agriculture and smart city and smart building as well as for oil / gas and environmental data monitoring sensors and digital signage.
The XBee Cellular NB-IoT modems Digi International are integrated modules that developers offer an easy way to integrate narrowband low current wireless connectivity into devices. The Digi XBee mobile NB-IoT is a cost-effective (LPWA - Low Power Wide Area) integrated mobile radio modem with low power consumption and long range. These integrated modem modules are specially designed for the use of small data volumes over existing mobile networks and optimized for maximum battery life of more than 10 years.
The XBee Cellular NB-IoT modems are programmable and support custom MicroPython applications, eliminating the need for an external microcontroller. With a size of 24.38mm x 32.94mm, it also has the Digi TrustFence Security Framework, which ensures the necessary security. The first XBee Cellular Modem NB-IoT an entire family operates in the NB-IoT band 20 and works in the full industrial temperature range of -40 ° C to + 80 ° C.
In addition, the new module comes in the unified XBee form factor and therefore fits seamlessly into the migration paths, which ensures a quick and easy changeover.
This XBee Cellular NB-IoT modems are part of a complete ecosystem of wireless modules, gateways, adapters and software so that developers can they bring to their existing designs to achieve an immediate cellular integration to perform without a complete redesign.
The XBee Cellular NB-IoT Modem and its development kit is now available from Atlantik Elektronik. Atlantik Elektronik also offers mobile connections, mobile radio antennas and cloud services for simplified access as well as the corresponding software design.
