Fatal error

Post by Maura84 » September 20th, 2013, 4:38 am

Dear Keithley Engineers,

I am experiencing an error in 2651A today when doing I-V measurements, sourcing the instrument in costant current mode set at 1A.
After few seconds, the current started to increase and suddently there was no more response at all when I pressed any button. So I switched it off and on again and it shows now two errors that the manual classifies as "FATAL". They are: ERROR 5051 and ERROR 5001.
Could you suggest any solution?

Thanks a lot for your help.

I discussed with the service department.
Sounds like this unit is in need of service.
Please contact your locak Keithley/Tektronix repair facility.
