Topic: MKR1400 very unstable! (Read 964 times) previous topic - next topic

I'm using the MKR1400 board to connect to a google sheet website to read some status to in turn control a valve. I started off by using the WebSSLClient example on the arduino website, and changed bits of the code there to be suitable too me. The sketch:

Code: [Select]
/*
  Web client

 This sketch connects to a website using SSL through a MKR GSM 1400 board. Specifically,
 this example downloads the URL "http://www.arduino.cc/asciilogo.txt" and
 prints it to the Serial monitor.

Let me start off by saying that the code does function if the GSM does it's job. I have had successfull runs where the connection is made and data is received.

When I run this code the GSM is VERY unstable. below I have provided a debug-log of the GSM communication. As you can see the code stops at "+CREG: 0,1         OK", just as the connection is established.

This is not the only places it hangs. It sometimes also hangs just as i posted the request to open the connection to "spreadsheet.google.com". It just stops...

Also just as the bytes are received it sometimes hangs.

Lastly let me point out that the device is powered by a stabalized power source of 5VDC @ 5A(max). I also tried 4.1V@2A (no idea why that would improve things, but yeah).


I hope someone has had this same issue and has some clue as to why this happens!
