EHS8 Power down | Thales IoT Developer Community

January 27, 2016 - 10:27am, 2981 views


I'm programming an EHS8 with the Java API. The program basically starts, makes some sensor measurements, gets the RTC time (AT^CCLK?), sets the ALARM x minutes later (AT+CALA) to restart the module and finally, it is switched off. 

The problem is that the module is consuming too much power when it's off. If it's switched off calling the destroyApp method, the module is consuming like 50mA, and if it's switched off with AT^SMSO, it's still consuming 18mA. I'm calling several threads during the functionality, but I wait for them to finish (join method). 

Any ideas about which can be the reasons for such consumption?
