PDS8 Restarting with emerg_off (IGT tied to GND) vs power cycling | Telit Cinterion IoT Developer Community

February 4, 2019 - 2:11pm, 2965 views

Dear all,

I would like to ask if there is a difference between a complete power cycle vs an emerg_off with IGT connected to ground? The IGT connect to ground makes the module automatically restarts. 

The reason is that our external watchdog is now connected the emerg_off. The watchdog is the last fail-safe to get the modem up and running if it stops reacting to the AT commands. I would like to know if this is sufficient as fail-safe? 

Thanks in advance
