Wed, 10/20/2010 - 9:14am


California Eastern Laboratories (CEL) is now shipping its new MeshConnect™ EM357 module, built on the industry’s leading integrated circuit (IC) for ZigBee, the EM357 from Ember Corporation.

Designed for ZigBee Pro™ applications, the module runs the full ZigBee Pro software stack and Smart Energy profile, enabling applications such as smart meters, smart grid, building automation, remote control, and HVAC. With its strong transmit power, the module delivers superior range and performance even compared to other Ember-based modules. At +20 dBm power output, the new MeshConnect module provides extended range measured in miles, better in-home penetration for smart meters, and overall increased link reliability for all devices.

Unique among modules in its class, the MeshConnect EM357 module includes generous on-board external flash memory to enable convenient over-the-air software upgrades in the field, saving what would be thousands of hours of manual field upgrades in many instances.

The new EM357 module adds breadth and depth to the expanding family of MeshConnect products, which include the MeshConnect System on Chip IC, the original MeshConnect module for simple 802.15.4 applications and the MeshConnect Extended Range module.
