PwrPak7 Power Requirements

Voltage

+9 to +36 VDC

Power Consumption

PwrPak7

2.75 W typical: GPS/GLONASS, dual frequency model; no L-band tracking

3.25 W typical: Multi-constellation, multi frequency model; no L-band tracking

PwrPak7D

3.95 W typical: Multi-constellation, dual frequency model, no L-band tracking

PwrPak7-E1,
PwrPak7-E2

3.4 W typical: Multi-constellation, multi frequency model; no L-band tracking

PwrPak7D-E1,
PwrPak7D-E2

4.15 W typical: Multi-constellation, dual frequency model; no L-band tracking

Inrush Current

1.5 A for less than 1.3 ms (@ 12 V; typical)

The power consumption values assume Wi-Fi is disabled, Ethernet is disabled, the USB stick is unplugged and default interference mitigation.

These are values for a typical use-case including logging to one or more serial/virtual USB ports, and/or to internal FLASH memory. These values can change with the number of satellites in view, model type and other feature usage. Use them as a guide for what to expect but not as upper limit values.
