Offset adjustment - radiofarol - 2017-06-11

Does someone tell me why the system graphic of my detector show always a offset of + 50/60mV from zero? Can I adjust this anywhere? In the web interface, a can`t find any adjustment for this! It`s seem any wrong value in the ADC.  Huh

That is normal.

There is a slight DC component that causes the offset.

Not adjustment is needed, and why there is no option.

Tanks a lot lot Kevin for your reply. I understanding that is a sliht DC component. I was a bit worried that this offset would change the results of the system, but if Kevin says it's normal, I'll be calmer. Thanks again!
