Digi International Unveils Digi XLR PRO Line

Digi International unveiled the Digi XLR PRO line of radios for reliable, long-range wireless data transmission for Ethernet and serial devices.

With its patent-pending Punch2 Technology to overcome noisy RF environments, the Digi XLR PRO radio is ideally suited for industries with remote assets such as oil and gas exploration/production and utilities.

With a line of sight range of more than 100 miles, the 1-Watt, unlicensed, 900 MHz, wide-band radio supports data rates of beyond 3 Mbps, giving the Digi XLR PRO a unique combination of best-in-class performance, extreme reliability and excellent speed at a great value.

Punch2 Technology leverages Chirp Spread Spectrum (CSS) modulation which uses its entire allocated bandwidth to broadcast a signal which allows it to easily break through noisy RF environments. Most radios use either direct-sequence spread spectrum (DSSS) or frequency-hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) which can distort the data signal by adding random elements to the signal to help distinguish it from other RF noise. Punch2 Technology’s use of CSS relies on the linear nature of the chirp gaining advantages such as superior receive sensitivity, immunity from transmission interference and the ability to transmit data over long distances without degradation of the signal.

Digi XLR PRO is simple to use and requires no programming. It can be quickly and easily configured using Digi’s XCTU configuration platform and can be managed and maintained with the Device Cloud Manager. 877.912.3444,
