System • Select the Settings Tab.
Calibration • Select unit 1.1 in the Trigger source box. (If you are performing a calibration you may also select “line” as trigger source. The system then
uses a light-sensitive sensor to synchronize itself to fluorescent light sources. Do not forget to change the trigger source back to unit 1.1
before performing the actual measurement)
• Enter 350 kHz into the fCenter box.
• Select 300 kHZ in the Bandwidth box.
This configuration sets up the system for an IEC60270-compliant measurement.
The option High Sensitivity Mode should be unchecked to prevent the MPD unit from damage.
