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
  • Sampling per InputResolution: 12bits, Period: 666ns = 500.0kSPS, Time: 2000ns

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!

When I started my station I noticed the same issue.
Finally I cleaned all PCB with Kontakt WL product and all DC components have disappeared.

Oooo, that's interesting. Now what is "Kontakt WL"? A residue free, volatile, cleaner. Finds the safety data sheet, mostly isopropanol (propan-2-ol, isopropyl alcohol) with a dash of light petroleum (Naptha, lighter fluid). Have both of those lying about... Did you just clean a few selected areas or give the whole board, both sides, a good squirting with Kontackt WL?
