Default Failsafe power consumption?

What is the milliamp-hr power consumption rate of the failsafe pin switch in the PE Pro when it is in the "off" position?

Hi Lee,
The power consumption will depend on the battery voltage. On average its about 5mA-10mA per day or about 0.208mAH-0.417mAH.

I will use (2) A123 packs connected directly to the PE Pro, so I will assume about 10 ma drain per day total or 5ma from each battery pack per day? It should take close to a year to fully drain each pack.

Hi Lee,
This is per pack but you are about right, I would guess if you had a fully charged pack it should be OK for 230 days.
