Title: RTB2000: internal hardware calibration detected an error
Post by: Frank_MV on November 05, 2020, 08:10:32 am
Could it be that Rohde & Schwarz had problems with the first RTB2000 devices ?
I have already heard of 2 cases where the internal hardware calibration detected an error and the RTB had to be sent in.

About to buy an RTB2000 myself. Were these early units ?

I know of a device that was probably bought in 2018. Maybe it has had a hardware problem. The RTB should have detected an error during the self-calibration test and created an error log. The device have been exchanged for a new one. Unfortunately I do not know details.
It is possible that the first batch had problems.

Of course this can always happen, with every manufacturer.
It is only annoying when the warranty has expired.

I have a launch bundle and no issues here. Works like the day I got it(the bugs never affected what I do).
