Hi all,

To perform calibrate a N5230A PNA with an N4691-60001 ECal module, I use a VI that a past coworker developped. The problem I have is to check when the calibration is done. I know that when the calibration is done, you can ask the PNA with ":STAT:OPER:DEV?: SCPI command, and the PNA indicates that the calibration is done. So I wanted to poll the PNA periodically during calibration and so ask until the end of the calibration. The problem I have is that when it is calibrating, the PNA doesn't respond to any request, and if you send one, the calibration abort and isn't properly done.

I would like to know if there is a way to ask the PNA to know when the calibration is done, and so o not need to use a timer, which leads to problems if the sweep parameters change (because the calibration time changes as well).

Thanks for your help
