How to measure the power consumed by a temperature sensor theoretically?
The datasheets mention the supply voltage range and output current. So, to calculate the power supply current will be used in P=VI. The supply current is not mentioned in the datasheets. What is the way to calculate this value?
The supply current will depend on the resistance.
- The datasheets mention a number of thermal resistance value. Is there any relation between these resistance values?
- and will this information help in finding out the power consumed?
- If the temperature sensor is being used for continuous monitoring, does the power consumption vary?
