Power Saving Mode of PLS8-E | Telit Cinterion IoT Developer Community

June 22, 2017 - 8:26am, 2276 views

The datasheet of PLS8-E stated that there is a power saving mode of the module, which can be enabled by AT command


The Hardware Interface Description also stated that the typical rating of current consumption of SLEEP mode is around 2-5 mA.

I was measuring the current of the module only and got the result of about 20mA with Power Saving mode enabled.

Then I realized the USB is still connected after I send AT command via COM port. Therefore I have remove from PC and measure it again. However, the result is still 20mA.

It there some steps I have missed, thus the module cant gito SLEEP mode?
