Digi XBee3™ modules accelerate time to market for designers, OEMs and solution providers by quickly enabling wireless connectivity and easy-to-add functionality. Building on industry-leading technology, pre-certified Digi XBee3 modules offer the flexibility to switch between multiple frequencies and wireless protocols as needed.

Ideal for moderate bandwidth (typically <25 MB per month) and low-cost IoT applications, Digi XBee3 Cellular LTE CAT 1 modules are cost-competitive with legacy 2G/3G standard devices.

With Digi Remote Manager®, XBee3 modules can be easily configured and controlled from a simple, central platform. Built-in Digi TrustFence® security, identity and data privacy features use more than 175 controls to protect against new and evolving cyber threats. Standard XBee API frames and AT commands, MicroPython and XCTU software tools simplify adding functionality, set-up, configuration and testing. Digi XBee3 modules are the latest addition to the expanding Digi XBee Ecosystem of wireless modules, adapters and software – all engineered to accelerate development and deployment.
