Power Consumption Calculator / EarthData PR6-24

Hard disk record capacity is calculated by help of the following estimation:
  • MiniSEED: 2 byte/sample (seismics downto 1.2; magnetotellurics up to 3)
  • ASCII : 6 byte/sample (magnetotellurics up to 10)
  • integer : 4 byte/sample (correct)

Battery (12 Volts; GEL or Glass Mat type) capacity calculation includes:
  • Battery capacity versus temperature
  • Temperature dependend hard disk heating
Battery self discharge is not considered.
