Hi, we have two XBee Pros using the ZNet function. The current drain is around 20mA at 3.3V. Is it possible to reduce this power drain or speed up the wakep time to less than 0.5 seconds.
I would suggest moving away from ZNet. It is the precursor to ZigBee and as such is clunky at best. Also, no further development is done on that firmware.
You should be able to write ZigBee (XBP24-ZB) firmware to the module and see significant improvement to the power consumption as well as faster wake up times.
One last thing, make sure all your unused I/O lines are not left floating. Either tie them high or low.
OK, thanks. I will update and do some more tests. The only reason for using ZNet was a video on Youtube by someone called ixer2006: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rk5QpzgHXGM
I will update the modem firmware to -ZB and give it a run. Thanks for your help
