XBee-PRO XSC RF modules are extended-range embedded wireless solutions providing end-point connectivity to devices. These modules are capable of deploying point-to-point, peer-to-peer and point-to-multipoint networks. Designed for maximum range, the XBee-PRO XSC is ideal for solutions where RF penetration and absolute transmission distance are paramount to the application. With XBee, you can have your network up and running in a matter of minutes without configuration or additional development. Once the network is running, XBee-PRO XSC modules accept simple AT commands for advanced configuration.
Part of the XBee family of wireless products, these modules are easy to use, share a common footprint, and are fully interoperable with other XBee products utilizing the same technology. This allows different XBee technologies to be drop-in replacements for each other; you can switch between 802.11, 802.15.4, ZigBee, DigiMesh and proprietary long-range with minimal development time or risk.
XBee-PRO XSC modules are also over-the-air compatible with certain variants of the XStream OEM RF module, specifically: X09-009, firmware version 42B5.
Note: This module is certified for use in North America only. It may not be used in Australia, Europe or Japan. Other areas, check local regulations.
