N5242A P1dB converter

I have a N5242A with options 200, P02, UNL, 016, 014, 081, S02, 219, 224, 080, 083, 029, 084, 087 and 086.

I want to get the gain compression of a Ku band LNB:

Gain ~ 60 dB, NF ~1.0 dB

P1dB ~ 3 dBm

Input frequency range: 10.0 - 13.5 GHz

Embedded LO frequency: 9.75 GHz


I just chose the gain compression converters class, set the frequencies keeping the power and compression unchanged.

On calibration wizard I chose Independents Power Cals for Input and Output Ports and did the calibration.

The correction remains OFF, when I try to turn it ON the software crashes: "853x.exe has stopped working".


Can someone tell me what's wrong?

Application code version: A.10.65.03
