You might find the answer by reading between the lines on a data sheet.
I think most Rubidium boxes have a c-field adjustment. I think it's intended
to correct for the local magnetic field but also adjusts for all other minor
things. The data sheet might say something about the adjustment range.
These are my opinions, not necessarily my employer's. I hate spam.
