Is anyone else having problems with the LTE Electron and the FXUB63 antenna?
We have a test rig where we have tested well over a hundred older 3G electrons with no significant issues. We are now testing the new LTE Electrons with the new antennas before packaging the devices up and shipping them with our product. However, we cannot keep them connected!
They will go through the process and get a viable signal for a few minutes and relay test data. Then they will lose connection and go back to flashing green. This weekend, I never got a signal back and it wasnt until I came back to the office, re-positioned the unit “maybe” 1 cm and rebooted and then it got a signal… for an addititional minute and then disconnected again.
We have gotten so used to the 3G models just “working” that this is very disconcerting but we switched to the LTE as we know the 3G service is being sunsetted in 2020-2021.
also, the LTE flexible antenna is slightly longer than the older, rigid antenna and will not fit properly in our case design. Is it ok for the flexible antenna to be bent or curved in order to fit in a space?
