Wall Router Extends ZigBee Networks
Digi International introduced the XBee wall router, a ZigBee router used to expand a ZigBee network's range. This device plugs into standard power sockets to compensate for a network's signal erosion or data loss due to distance or interference. It also creates multiple pathways to ensure maximum network reliability. The XBee wall router can be used with Digi's ConnectPortT X gateways, XBee embedded modules, XBee adapters, or XBee sensors. It includes two sensors for temperature and light that allow customers using the ConnectPort X gateway to receive data for monitoring and control. It also features a tab for secure attachment into wall sockets using the existing hole. This prevents accidental unplugging and reduces the risk of theft or vandalism. The router's MSRP is $79.
