How much time does a single transmission take?

Hello Kevin,


I was reading your post regarding WSN node lifetime calculations.

Towards the end you had made a comparison between battery life time and sample interval.


For this calculation, have u considered energy breakdown for all cycles.


Can you share the equation that you have used to compare battery life time vs sample interval

Hi Tomy,


It looks like the data discussed on this forum post was from an internal R&D information source from 8 years ago. The NI WSN Node Power and Performance Benchmarks documentation lists similar data, but does not list the equation.


Please feel free to create a new forum post with your specific question so that it can get increased visibility in our NI community.
