EHS6 low power operation | Telit Cinterion IoT Developer Community

I am evaluating the use if the EHS6 using the Cinterion board. My primary concern is power consumption. The EHS6 hardware data only shows a average power for the "Power Down" condition of 60uA. Of much more interest would be the follwing average currents:
1. EHS6 is in airplane mode and not running any application code.
2. EHS6 in airplane mode running a Java app that sleeps for 1 minute and then goes to sleep again. IE simple Java application running but not doing anything
Related question is how long it takes to switch in and out of airplane mode?
There is quite a big current consumption ratings table in the EHS6 Hardware Interface Description.
However we don't have any official power consumption value for airplane mode and definitely not for the second scenario. You would probably have to test it by yourself. Please bare in mind that there are more factors that influence the power consumption like UART interface sleep mode, USB or other interfaces connections.
