Septentrio PolaRx5 Power Consumption

  • All values were measured using an Agilent DC Power Analyzer
    • Power consumption was measured at 12 V
  • Measured values are given with 10% margin of error
    • Power values will fluctuate with the number of visible satellites tracked
  • Users must turn off both satellite and signal tracking to realize power consumption reductions
