Restart on Fatal Error

Restart on Fatal Error

Last updated: December 2, 2008

Description

The Restart on Fatal Error feature provides the ability to configure the test set to automatically restart when a fatal error occurs. Restart on Fatal Error does not apply when a fatal error occurs during the test set's power up sequence.

The Restart on Fatal Error State is retained regardless of whether the test set is restarted manually or through the Restart on Fatal Error feature. The test set's default setting for the Restart on Fatal Error State is Off. If the Restart on Fatal Error State is set to On and a fatal error occurs, the test set prints the fatal error condition on the test set's front panel. The test set then waits for 25 seconds before restarting.

The following error message is then displayed on the test set's front panel once the test set completes its power up sequence: " Warning; 8960 has been restarted after a non-recoverable error occurred. " All errors in the error/event queue can be queried using the command SYSTem:ERRor? .

Configurable Parameters
