PLS8-E: serving cell, TX_power error? | Thales IoT Developer Community

June 19, 2017 - 2:40pm, 1147 views

Hello,

We've found out that our PLS8-E device is reporting strange values for TX_power parameter in serving cell information. In two consecutive requests of the cell information (AT^SMONI=255) we receive one common value and other one with a possibly erroneous value:

06/19/2017 12:25:55 PM         4G,...,...,20,20,FDD,...,...,8602,...,...,-10,-68,-8,CONN

06/19/2017 12:25:56 PM         4G,...,...,20,20,FDD,...,...,8602,...,...,-32768,-68,-6,CONN

As it can be seen, first value (-10) seems to be normal, while the value given just one second after that (-32768) is not comprehensible. I see no more detailed information for this parameter in the documentation.

What could be the reason for the strange RX level values given by the command?

Best regards,

Raul.
