OK I can see that I have to rephrase my question:
I have a Hand Terminal ANT AP2 - normally powered off â?? no active channel.
I have a Remote Sensor controlled by a low power uP + ANT AP2 - normally idle.
I need a standard bidirectional pre-configured PEER-TO-PEER communication channel.
I can manually power on the Hand Terminal â?? since it is in my hand
I cannot manually bring the remote sensor out of idle mode â?? I have to do this over the air
In order not to let the Remote Sensor use too much power being a constantly searching SLAVE I suggested (in my former post) that the Remote Sensor should act as MASTER and the Hand Terminal as a SLAVE.
This way the Remote Sensor (MASTER) can open a bidirectional channel and constantly broadcast packets that the Hand Terminal can detect after being powered on.
So â?? My question goes:
â??Does it make sense â?? power wise â?? to program a micro processor controlled ANT AP2 based unreachable Remote Sensor as MASTER instead of SLAVE?
