On Aplicom Partner Extranet you can find a Aplicom battery runtime calculator Excel workbook in zip file available for calculating the running time of different A-series units on the internal battery. The workbook includes worksheets for different A-series products or product groups to match their available battery alternatives.
I addition to Aplicom A11 with a 200 mAh battery there is also a version available with a 1700mAh internal battery as a customised version. With this bigger capacity the A11 can work without external power for hours, several days or even weeks depending on the unit’s configured sleep time- and wake-up time intervals. The same principles can be also implemented with Java SDK programming.
Below is an example screen of the calculator worksheet for A11. It shows an example of a calculation for position 3 by showing sending per day, 8 hour cycle (power off) and 2 minutes power on per wake-up.
The calculated values can be used as guideline when estimating the operation time. Please note that the calculation relies on a fully charged battery and room temperature as the start condition. Operation in low and high temperatures will affect available battery capacity and thus result in an inaccurate calculation. Also, if the unit wakes-up for a reason other than the timed wake-up (movement etc.), the calculated time is not valid as such and the different situation must be estimated or calculated separately.
