XBee-PRO 900 RF Module
The XBee-PRO 900 RF module is ideally suited for less power-hungry, low-latency point-to-multipoint networking applications.
Capable of point-to-point, peer-to-peer and point-to-multipoint networking, The XBee-900 modules have a higher selectable
transmitting power of 250mW. This higher TX power allows for line-of-sight range up to 28 miles with the right antenna.
It is ideal for solutions where RF penetration and absolute transmission distance are paramount to the application.
900MHz VS 2.4GHz
Most of the Xbee modules operate at 2.4GHz, but there are a few that operate at 900MHz. Basically, 900MHz can go a lot farther
with a high gain antenna (up to 15miles for the Pro modules and a high gain antenna). Also the lower the frequency the
greater penetration the signal has. 900MHz is also not allowed in many countries. You can NOT mix and match these on the
board is led free and RoHS Compliant. If your requirements are for RoHS compliant parts this board is manufactured with RoHS compliant
led free parts and solder.
