XBee/XBee pro manual says transmit current(typical) is,
XBee - 45mA@3.3V
XBee pro - 250mA@3.3V
However, I found XBee pro also spends only around 45mA@3.3V.
As far as I know, XBee raises up the transmit power according to some conditions. So I changed distances and locations btw transceiver and receiver module but I got the same result.
Yes, it’s good thing for me. high power module consumes the power like low power one! But, I can’t believe this. I probably missed out something in my test.
Can anybody advise me about this? How can I test it correctly? I would see 250mA at XBee pro!
Thanks in advance.
