How to Buy

The XStick is a USB peripheral adapter that provides short-range wireless connectivity to a low-power mesh or multipoint network in a familiar, easy-to-carry form factor. Housing Digi's XBee® module, this off-the-shelf adapter provides instant wireless connectivity from a laptop or PC, allowing network configuration, diagnostics or device monitoring to be conducted locally.

Two versions of the XStick are available - the XStick ZB (mesh version) and the XStick 802.15.4 (multipoint version). The XStick ZB is configured to behave as a coordinator within a Zigbee network.

The XStick can be plugged directly into the USB port of a laptop or PC or connected using an extension cable (must be three meters or less in length). The XStick is USB powered and does not require batteries or a power adapter.

*Range figure estimates are based on free-air terrain with limited sources of interference. Actual range will vary based on transmitting power, orientation of transmitter and receiver, height of transmitting antenna, height of receiving antenna, weather conditions, interference sources in the area, and terrain between receiver and transmitter, including indoor and outdoor structures such as walls, trees, buildings, hills, and mountains.
