I've got an S2B I am putting in and out of pin sleep hibernate every 10 seconds (effected by an arduino).
My power consumption is as follows:
with xbee plugged into board
- sleep -- 40mA
- awake -- 115-120mA
with xbee unplugged from board (running same code)
- sleep -- 21mA
- awake -- 32mA
subtracting these, I am calculating that the xbee is using
- sleep -- 19mA
- awake -- 83mA
running a similar test with a xbee in router mode, I get the following readings
- sleep (arduino, not xbee) -- 67mA
- awake (arduino, not xbee) -- 78mA
My expectation is the xbee should draw < 1mA when asleep and should only draw ~ 80mA when awake when transmitting / receiving.
Is this a correct assumption? If so, how can I make this happen?
