Sensors Expo 2008, the industry’s premiere event focusing on sensors and sensor-integrated systems.
June 10 to 11 in Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois.

MeshNetics will present world’s first 900 MHz ZigBee PRO platform

CatNet Systems MeshNetics will make a groundbreaking announcement that will redefine ZigBee as we know it. ZigBee already leads the Internet of Things revolution, providing standards based wireless sensing solutions for the energy management, building automation, smart metering and more. But while ZigBee is designed to employ both 900 MHz and 2.4 GHz frequency bands, the majority of ZigBee solutions in the market today are 2.4 GHz. A number of wireless technologies, like Wi-Fi and Bluetooth already use the license-free 2.4 GHz band which makes it increasingly crowded. The Sub-1 GHz band (915 MHz in US and 868 MHz in Europe) is not only less crowded, it offers some significant advantages over 2.4 GHz. The 900 MHz frequency has a higher operating range, better interference resistance and superior wall penetration capability. The latter is crucial in building automation applications. MeshNetics ZigBit 900 module is the first platform that combines the superior performance of 900 MHz with the robustness of ZigBee PRO embedded software. The tiny module achieves the record-breaking line-of-sight range of 6,000 meters (over 3.7 miles), while maintaining low power consumption. We will be making an official announcement of ZigBit 900 on June 9th. The shipments of the engineering samples will begin immediately.

ZigBit Amp module has received a prestigious Tech Choice award from

The rest of our ZigBee product line will also be on display at Sensors Expo, including our amplified 2.4 GHz ZigBee module, the ZigBit Amp. This module has just received a Tech Choice award in the Wireless category from, the largest embedded online portal. ZigBit Amp is ideal for the applications requiring 2.4 GHz. Thanks to its unique design, it provides a rare combination of best in class range and low power consumption. ZigBit Amp is already used in a variety of outdoor and indoor wireless sensing applications worldwide.
