Version:
    Last Modified: July 19, 2019

    Your device must be externally calibrated at least once every two years in order to maintain adherence to published specifications.

    For the PXIe-5172, external calibration yields the following benefits:

    • Corrects for DC gain and offset errors within the oscilloscope.
    • Corrects for DC offset errors within the oscilloscope for the AC coupling paths.
    • Minimizes internal Sample Clock Frequency accuracy errors.

    Your application may have different calibration interval requirements based on its measurement accuracy demands. You can change the calibration due date with MAX or the Set Calibration Due Date node.

    Calibration procedures may be found online at ni.com/manuals.
