Zimo, Zigbee & Wi-Fi

This page is to show the Zigbee frequencies and the Wi-Fi frequencies to show how they overlap and let you make an intelligent choice should you want/need to change the Zigbee frequency

 

Channels:

So, Zigbee works within the 2.4 GHz ISM band, and so does your typical Wi-Fi. Below is the frequency chart for Zigbee

zigbee channels(11-26)Center Frequency(MHz)
11 2405
12 2410
13 2415
14 2420
15 2425
16 2430

2.4GHz WLAN Channel to frequency chart

The following table-1 mentions WLAN channel vs frequency(lower,center,upper) values for channel number 1 to channel number 14 for 2.4GHz frequency band.

Zigbee-11   2405  
Zigbee-12   2410  
WLAN-1 2401 2412 2423
Zigbee-13   2415  
WLAN-2 2404 2417 2428
Zigbee-14   2420  
WLAN-3 2411 2422 2433

WLAN-6 2426 2437 2448
Zigbee-18   2440  
WLAN-7 2431 2442 2453
Zigbee-19   2445  
WLAN-8 2436 2447 2458
Zigbee-20   2450  
WLAN-9 2441 2452 2463
Zigbee-21   2455  
WLAN-10 2451 2457 2468
Zigbee-22   2460  
WLAN-11 2451 2462 2473
Zigbee-23   2465  
WLAN-12 2456 2467 2478
Zigbee-24   2470  
WLAN-13 2461 2472 2483
Zigbee-25   2475  
WLAN-14 2473 2484 2495

 

So, the MX10 can be configured from channels 11 to 25 (dang, wanted 26)

Therefore you might do a site survey, but all things being equal, I'd pick channel 11 if there is an even dispersion of WLAN channels in use in your area.

WLAN/wifi 802.11 channels

This page describes WLAN 802.11 channels. It covers 2.4GHz, 3.6GHz and 5GHz wifi channel to frequency converter tables.
