PLS62-W Diversity Antenna | Thales IoT Developer Community

July 27, 2022 - 3:44pm, 782 views

We have been using the PLS62-W in our product for a while, and have only been using the ‘Main Antenna’ connection, with the ‘diversity antenna’ left unconnected, and have had no issues.

I was just doing some further reading and was wondering if someone could let me know some more detail about the need for the diversity antenna? Are we severely hampering our network connectivity by only using the main antenna, and should we indeed be using two antennas?

The product is a telemetry device and only transfers very small payloads of data once a day.

Any comments would be appreciated.
