Roving Networks RN-XV Wi-Fi Module - UFL connector




$34.95 ea.

What a sweet idea! A 802.11b/g wifi module with a XBee plugin footprint! This model features a UFL antenna connector.

Description [Hide]

You don't want IR communication. Bluetooth is too goofy-sounding. Wires... well, they suck. You want Wi-Fi, and the fine folks at Roving Networks have come up with the RN-XV to satisfy your needs.

This is a certified 802.15.4 Wi-Fi solution based on their RN-171 module that features:

  • 802.11 b/g radio
  • 32 bit processor
  • TCP/IP stack
  • real-time clock
  • crypto accelerator
  • power management unit
  • analog sensor interface

What's particularly cool is that this fits in a standard XBee footprint! Move from XBee to Wifi, Presto-Chango, that easy!

What else does it offer?

  • Additional I/O via onboard programmable GPIOs (8) and ADCs (3).
  • The 14-bit ADC resolution (wow)
  • The module is pre-loaded with Roving firmware to simplify integration and minimize development time of your application.
  • Basic hardware configuration only requires four connections (PWR, TX, RX and GND) to create a wireless data connection.

  • Direct Internet connectivity provides internet access to every node
  • Point to point connectivity to every node without the need for custom profiles
  • Based on common 802.15.4 footprint
  • Ultra low power: 4uA sleep mode, 38mA active
  • Onboard TCP/IP stack includes DHCP, UDP, DNS, ARP, ICMP, HTTP client, FTP client and TCP
  • Firmware configurable transmit power: 0dBm to 12dBm
  • Hardware interfaces:TTL UART
  • Host data rate up to 464Kbps over UART
  • Supports Adhoc and infrastructure networking
  • 8 general purpose digital I/O
  • 3 analog sensor inputs
  • Real-time clock for time-stamping, auto-sleep, and auto-wakeup modes
  • Accepts 3.3VDC regulated power supply
  • Configuration over UART or wireless interface (via Telnet) using simple ASCII commands
  • Over the air firmware upgrade (FTP)
  • Secure WiFi authentication: WEP, WPA-TKIP , WPA2-AES


  • Industrial metering
  • HVAC control
  • Room temperature sensors
  • Pump configuration and control
  • Telemetry
  • Robotics
  • PV / Solar controllers
