What Are Digi TransPort WR21 Power Saving Modes?
Shared on April 03, 2014 written by USAT Corp. under Digi International News
This information is provided by Bill Word, Sales Engineer for Digi International. You can reduce the amount of power a Digi TransPort WR21 consumes. This is useful for solar/battery powered applications and where the WR21 might only be communicating to a serial device, or you want to “wake up” the TransPort at a certain time by using a Python script to turn on the cellular module and send data. WR21 firmware release 5169 added a "Low Power" mode. The power control sets up a power profile via the CLI command "pwrctrl". Examples: pwrctrl n cpuspeed (where 0 = High, 1 = Medium, 2 = Low) pwrctrl n leds pwrctrl n eth pwrctrl n gprs (gprs = cellular module) pwrctrl n gps (gps for WR41; not applicable for WR21) where n are profiles 0-3. The unit will boot up in Profile 0. The user can then switch between profiles with the CLI command: pwrctrl n act_rq This takes effect immediately. A Python script could be used to switch between profiles bas...
