I would like to know how to minimize the current consumption of a tag when is out of reach of its UWB network (for example, when the tags is out of the office).
In this case, it seems that the tag wakes up each 60 s and tries to connect to its UWB network during about 0,5 s. So, it gives to me about 1.3 mA on average.
As we would like to reduce this current (when the tag is far away from the network), we tried to put the tag in OFF mode. In this state it shouldn’t try to connect to any UWB network, and it is what indeep happen. We follow this process:
1.- put the tag in Off mode
2.- put the tag to sleep
However, we have seen that the current in this state (off+sleep), the current is quite big, more than 0.275 mA, which is much more than the tag is deep sleep (about 0.015 A).
Are these measurements correct? Are we doing something wrong?
We wait for any answer…
Thank you and best regards
