Digi releases next generation Zigbee smart energy gateway

Digi International on Tuesday introduced an enhanced version of the company’s ZigBee Smart Energy gateway. The gateway connects ZigBee Smart Energy devices from a Home Area Network (HAN) to an energy service provider via broadband and offers additional memory and processing power for over-the-air updates of connected Smart Energy devices. The ConnectPort X2e gateway also provides an upgrade path to Smart Energy 2.0.  The new gateway costs just over $100.


The gateways additional processing power allows support for more complex local energy efficiency applications, and the increased memory enables support for the impending ZigBee Smart Energy 2.0 standard.  The gateway runs on the open platform Linux operating system and can connect to numerous types of devices.


All Digi Smart Energy gateways feature the iDigi Device Cloud, allowing Smart Energy devices to integrate energy consumption data into new and existing Smart Energy applications. The gateway automatically connects to the iDigi Device Cloud.   


“Managing the device network is a significant barrier to Smart Grid adoption,” says Larry Kraft, senior vice president of global sales and marketing at Digi International (Minnetonka, Minn., USA). “To make widespread deployment a reality, the industry needs open architecture and lower-cost solutions for connecting large Smart Energy device deployments.”
