Programming 4-20mA plug and sense and power supply

Post by JoffreyFontaine » Mon Jun 24, 2019 10:56 am

Hello, we use the PCS for programming our plug and sense.
is that normal then when we programming a 4-20mA P&S , the 12V power supply is always on, also when de P&S is in sleeping mode ?
we use external solar pannel and after 3 days, the battery is completely empty.
Is there an option somewhere to desactivate power supply when the P&S sleep ?
thanks a lot

Hi Joffrey,

You are right, the 12v power supply isn't turned OFF when the node is in sleep mode. It is a bug that we will solve in the next API version. For now, we could develop the .hex for you with the bug fixed. Please share the P&S ID and the selected configuration in the PCS with us and we will send the correct .hex file.

Apologies for the inconvenience.

Regards

Hi,

We update the PCS last week. Please try to generate the code again, it should turn the power supply OFF when the P&S goes to deepSleep mode.

Regards
