Sierra Wireless ALEOS Version 4.3.5 Released
Shared on February 17, 2014 written by USAT Corp. under Sierra Wireless News
Sierra Wireless ALEOS version 4.3.5 was published to their website on February 7th, 2014. It is USAT’s recommendation that all LS300 and GX400/GX440/ES440 customers update to this firmware. In addition to providing feature updates and patches, ALEOS version 4.3.5 specifically corrects an issue that can cause LS300 devices to lock up in one of several states. The first state is when the device gets stuck in a constant reboot cycle. The other indicator of this problem is, once the device powers on, all lights on the device will turn on and stay green. Devices that fail due to this issue can only be remedied through manufacturer repair at Sierra Wireless’s facilities. Load the 4.3.5 update on your LS300 devices in order to prevent this issue. Depending on the firmware currently loaded in your device, updating to 4.3.5 may require several firmware updates prior to being able to load 4.3.5. For instance, any device that does not already have version 4.3.4.009 on it, will need to be u...

Sierra Wireless LS300 Low Voltage Issue And Workaround
Shared on February 14, 2014 written by USAT Corp. under Sierra Wireless News
Sierra Wireless has identified a power issue with LS300 devices that occurs when DC voltage drops below 7 volts. If the device slowly drops below this voltage and full operating voltage is then slowly restored, the device may end up in an unusable state. This state can only be reset by power cycling the device completely off and then back on. This particular series of circumstances most frequently occurs in solar installations, but could potentially occur with any DC based power solution that incurs a slow voltage drop and rise. Fortunately, we can use the low power mode of the device to avoid this state. When the device enters low power mode, it will be offline, however it will come back online when it returns to full power mode when the needed voltage is restored. In order to use the low power mode, log into the Ace Manager Web interface on the device and select the “Services” tab. Once on this tab, set the “Low Power Mode” to “Low Voltage”, and set a low voltage threshold o...
