MetamotionR r0.3 r0.1 current consumption with BLE and logging for Gyro,Accelerometer, Temp

Hi Mbient labs community,

I was hoping to get some information on current draw for both the old and current MetamotionR (r0.1 r0.3)

it will be streaming Gyro,Accelerometer and Temp at maximum frequency.

I have a multimeter at home I tested it open circuit but the multimeter was unable to pass current that allowed the circuit to function.

Thanks

    All you need to do is look up the datasheet for each sensor and see how much current they draw in different modes.
    Keep in mind the sensors are not on for much time but will probably draw around 2.5mA when active and then a couple of uA while sleeping/standing-by.

    Datasheets are available on the product pages, the document pages, and the store pages.
