The Self-Calibrate Components operation performs self-calibration on test system instruments by verifying an instrument against an onboard standard and adjusting the performance of the instrument to compensate for any discrepancies.
Typically, you perform self-calibration in the same environment in which you use the instrument. By doing so, the self-calibration operation can compensate for factors such as ambient temperature and time drift. You can perform a self-calibration at any time.
Before running the Self-Calibrate Components operation, make sure no other operations are running on the test system as the driver may need exclusive access to instrument resources.
