power reduction vs signal quality | Thales IoT Developer Community

July 23, 2020 - 9:38am, 2503 views


I'm using ELS61-E in solar powered machines that require the lowest energy setting.

Currently I'm using some setting to minimize the power consumption:
AT^SCFG="Radio/OutputPowerReduction", "4"

However, in some areas with bad reception, we are considering the option of increasing the modem consumption (with some limitations) if that helps with the communications

These problematic areas show a really poor power signal , so I'm wondering whether some twaeks on the modem side might help.

My initial idea was changing the OutputPowerReduction to a lower value like 1-2

Any advice would be really welcome
