Issue Details

When I run the PXI-542x/544x test procedures in NI Calibration Executive 3.6, why is the Verify Direct Analog Path Gain tests failing before and/or after adjustment?


The PXI-542x/544x fail the Verify Direct Analog Path Gain tests because of a data type conversion error. As a result of this error the offset value is not subtracted from the Direct Analog Path Gain measurement, which results in the test failing. To resolve this issue replace the Calibration Executive NI 54xx database with the attached update (NI54xx.mdb). The file to replace can be found in the following locations:

32-bit Operating System: 
C:\Program Files\National Instruments\Calibration Executive\procedures\NI54xx\Limits\ 

64-bit Operating System: 
C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\Calibration Executive\procedures\NI54xx\Limits\

Additionally, this issue is resolved in Calibration Executive version 3.6.1 and later.
