We have a about 50 Electrons deployed in the field and they generate a packet every 15 seconds and send it to the particle cloud where we then use an integration to further send the data to a custom storage and charting program. These units all transmit the same data like clock work and for well over a year they have worked very well. We have had these set to a 50MB plan for over a year with no issues.
Suddenly, yesterday, I have noticed that 5-6 of the units are now transmitting FAR more data than normal. Yesterday I had to upgrade them to 100MB and today they are “running out of data again”
We have made no firmware changes to these devices and operationally, I see nothing different in the data they transmit or any change in the data that is being received in the integration, yet the data rate being charted by the sim is SIGNIFICANTLY higher!!
