EHS6 powering up | Thales IoT Developer Community

February 3, 2015 - 9:18pm, 2193 views

Hello! My question is regarding the methods of turning on the EHS6 module. I am designing a board and debating between these 2 methods of turning on the module:

1) Having the power supply constantly applied, and pulling AUTO_ON low to start up the module. My question regarding this method is, can I reliably power off the module by then pulling AUTO_ON high again?

2) Wiring AUTO_ON permanently low, and turning on/off the power supply to turn the EHS6 on/off.

In addition to the question in the first scenario, I'm wondering if there is a more reliable/better method between these two.

Thanks for any advice on this,

-Jordan
