ZB ZigBee Relay Controller with an XR Expansion Port
Take all the Power of the ProXR Series Relay Controllers...add a Digi ZB ZigBee Compliant Interface: Remote Data Collection and Control is Effortless!
The latest Buzz in Wireless Technology is ZB ZigBee. ZB ZigBee is a great way to communicate data throughout buildings (or even across town) because it uses all the devices in the area to make sure your data arrives at its intended destination. ZB ZigBee automatically hops your data all over the ZB ZigBee Mesh Network, transparently forwarding your data to its intended destination. The beauty of ZB ZigBee is that you don't have to do anything except tell it where you want your data to go. The ZB ZigBee Mesh Network handles everything else for you. We have created a page dedicated to helping ZB ZigBee Mesh Network users understand this technology. So if you are a first time user of ZB ZigBee and you are looking for a great place to get started, see our article!
By combining the power of ZB ZigBee Mesh Networking with our ProXR series relay controllers, you can take advantage of our powerful ProXR command set for data collection and control, in combination with many wireless ZB ZigBee Mesh Networking features. ZB ZigBee is a perfect integration of good speed and excellent reliability, and for the first time, you can now improve data reliability by adding routers between the computer and far away devices.
Here is a quick rundown of what you should expect from ZB ZigBee Mesh Network:
Plug a ZB ZigBee Coordinator into the USB Port of your computer. The Coordinator will be used to communicated to your wireless ZB ZigBee Mesh Network. The Coordinator will mount as a COM port on your PC. Open the COM port and start sending data to the Coordinator. The Coordinator will forward your data to any or all devices on the ZB ZigBee Mesh Network.
|A ZB ZigBee Mesh Network consists of up to three components:|
If you are already using one of our ProXR series controllers, then integrating ZB ZigBee will be very easy. ZB ZigBee actually adds a command set to the ProXR command set. You send ZB ZigBee commands to talk to the network, and specify which device you want to talk to, you then send ProXR commands to the individual devices to activate relays and collect data. ZB ZigBee in its power-on state is like having a wireless serial port. Using ZB ZigBee commands give you the power to communicated to a complex network of wireless devices with incredible ease.
With all the control and backward/forward compatibility you have come to expect from the ProXR command set, this controller allow you to send simple commands to activate relays, read the status of relays, activate up to 16 relay timers, and control up to 256 total relays using the XR expansion port. All relays are electronically latched, simply send a command to turn the relay on, send a different command to turn the relay off.
