Digi launches Smart Energy portfolio

30 September 2009 Telecoms, Datacoms, Wireless, IoT

Digi International has introduced a Smart Energy product family, including ZigBee Smart Energy ready modules and certified Energy Service Portal (ESP) gateways built on these modules.

The ZigBee Smart Energy public profile defines how a collection of devices works cooperatively within a network, enabling utilities to intelligently manage energy loads, monitor energy use and optimise consumption. As a device communication standard for home area networks (HANs) selected by the US Department of Energy in their initial standards framework for Smart Grid development, ZigBee Smart Energy is a key technology for addressing America’s energy management needs in the future.

The new ZigBee Smart Energy product family includes the XBee and XBee-PRO SE ZigBee modules and ConnectPort X2 ESP certified gateway. Built upon the existing XBee and XBee-PRO ZB, the new modules feature firmware that simplifies the development work required to develop and certify a ZigBee Smart Energy device. The gateway provides the connection between a consumer’s HAN and an energy service provider over a broadband or cellular connection.

Digi ZigBee Smart Energy products also expand the recently launched iDigi Energy wireless M2M solutions bundle, which features the hardware, hosted software and services necessary to integrate Smart Grid devices. iDigi now includes Smart Energy ready hardware as well as Smart Energy software support through the iDigi platform, a Platform as a Service (PaaS) that connects remote assets to a customer’s applications.

XBee and XBee-PRO ZB ZigBee modules feature ZigBee Smart Energy-ready firmware for supporting the implementation of each of the eight devices defined in the ZigBee Smart Energy public application profile. These include ESPs, metering devices, in-premise display devices, programmable communicating thermostats (PCTs), load controllers, range extenders, smart appliances and prepayment terminals. Additionally, the modules handle networking, joining, authentication and key establishment functions, and provide simple network and module configuration via the XBee application programming interface (API).
