    When reading an RFMicron sensor, an “On-Chip RSSI target not met” message may be displayed on the screen, even though the reader is in close proximity to the sensor (ie: within a couple of feet). This message is a warning; it doesn’t necessarily mean the sensor reading is invalid. In case 1, too much received power at the tag’s chip (On-Chip RSSI too high) can distort sensor readings, so software suggests that you be cautious about the reported result. However, too little power (On-Chip RSSI too low) means that the sensor might be difficult to read, but that the sensor values will still be valid if the read process completes. If you are more than 2 or 3 feet away from the tag and you get an “RSSI too low” message, it’s likely related to too little RF power on the sensor. You can check the numerical value of the On-Chip RSSI by enabling the Dashboard feature in the software.
