Product Options:

When adding this device to your shopping cart, you will see several product options.  Choosing these options directs our staff to build the device so that it is ready for your application.  The following product options are available for this device.  Here is a detailed explanation of all product options currently available:
 
RoHS (Lead Free Options) Non-RoHS Compliant means this controller contains Lead and will be manufactured with some parts containing Lead, and is manufactured on the upper floor of our office, which is currently dedicated to producing most of our products, which contain Lead.
  RoHS Compliant means the controller was built using Lead Free Components, and is manufactured on the lower floor of our office, which is dedicated to Lead Free manufacturing.
 
Do you need a Power Supply for this Device?: Yes, Include a Computer Grade +12VDC Supply with 120-250VAC Input (US Spec)
Choosing YES to this option means we will include the PWR12 Power Supply.
  No Power Supply Included
Choose this option if you already have a 12V Computer Grade Regulated Power Supply.  Note that NCD Products are Suitable for use from an Automotive Power Supply as well.

Please Choose a ZB Mesh Wireless Option: This Option determines the type of ZB Mesh wireless module that will be installed in your controller.  Choosing the correct type of ZB Mesh wireless module is an important part of building a reliable ZB Mesh network. 
 

XBee:

2 mW (+3 dBm) power output (up to 400 ft RF LOS range)
  • ISM 2.4 GHz operating frequency
  • U.FL connector, Chip antenna, or Wired Whip antenna
  • Industrial temperature rating (-40 C to 85 C)
  • Approved for use in the United States, Canada, Australia and Europe
  • Advanced mesh networking and low-power modes supported
    More Technical Details...(Off Site Link)
 

XBee-PRO:

50 mW (+17 dBm) power output
(up to 1 mile RF LOS range)

XB24-Z7CIT-004

XBee ZB low power ZigBee module w/ chip antenna

This module should be used if several ZB Mesh devices are located close to each other (within a few feet).

 
Low-Profile Chip Antenna Integrated into these Modules
 

XBP24-Z7CIT-004

XBee-PRO ZB long range ZigBee module w/ chip antenna

Up to 1 Mile Line of Site Range, the Chip Antenna Version is a Better Choice if ZB Mesh Devices are Located Close Together.  Realistically, it is not possible to obtain 1 mile range with this device, but the transmit power is much greater.

XB24-Z7WIT-004

XBee ZB low power ZigBee module w/ integrated wire antenna

In our tests, this ZB module could provide up to 50 Feet indoors in a busy wireless environment, and could go up to 400 Feet outside if the coordinator could see the device.

 
Small Internal Antenna Integrated into these Modules
 

XBP24-Z7WIT-004

XBee-PRO ZB long range ZigBee module w/ integrated wire antenna

Up to 1 Mile Line of Site Range, this is a Low Cost option for Providing a Better Coverage than Chip Antennas, but should NOT be used if Several Devices are within Close Proximity.

XB24-Z7UIT-004

XBee ZB low power ZigBee module w/ U.FL connector, Pigtail, and External Antenna

This module also has a 400 Foot range, but the antenna is external, and can help improve range because it can be positioned independently of the controller.  The Antenna Included with this Device can be Replaced by a Much Larger Outdoor Antenna.

 
External Pigtail and Antenna Included with these Modules Only
 

XBP24-Z7UIT-004

XBee-PRO ZB long range ZigBee module w/ U.FL connector, Pigtail, & External Antenna

This Module Yields the Best Range and Coverage in Practical Applications.  Up to 1 Mile Line of Site Range, the External Antenna can be Positioned Independently of the Controller.  The Antenna Included with this Device can be Replaced by a Much Larger Outdoor Antenna.


Please Choose ZB Mesh Wireless Firmware Option:
Router (Forwards Data to Other Devices & Acts as Device in the ZB Mesh Network)
Router Firmware has the ability to contribute to a ZB Mesh Network.  It can forward Data, and it can act like a Endpoint Device.  But it is generally slower than a Endpoint Device.  Use Endpoint Devices when Possible, Routers when Necessary for best performance.  If you are unsure which Firmware to choose, Choose Router firmware, the speed is not as good, but you can't beat the reliability of a Router device.
Please See our Introduction to ZB Mesh Networking Article for a Complete Explanation
 
Endpoint (Faster, but Does Not Forward Data to Other Devices in the Network)
Endpoint Firmware is Pretty Fast, but it does not have the ability to forward data to other devices in the network.  Use Endpoint Devices when Possible, Routers when Necessary for best performance.
Please See our Introduction to ZB Mesh Networking Article for a Complete Explanation

Do you have a Coordinator (used to talk to a ZB Mesh network):
USB AT Coordinator (Recommended +$138)
Choose this Option if you are a New User.
Please See our Introduction to ZB Mesh Networking Article for a Complete Explanation
USB API Coordinator (For Advanced Users +$138)
If you need Speed, the API Coordinator is a much better choice, but it requires a programmer Experienced in ZB Mesh and capable of understanding the API Protocol.
Please See our Introduction to ZB Mesh Networking Article for a Complete Explanation
No, I Already Have a USB Coordinator
Choose this option ONLY if you have already have a ZB Mesh Coordinator manufactured by NCD or DIGI.  Coordinators manufactured by other companies may not work.
