It's right but continuing with the troubleshooting I have found the output
wire of the DAC connected to the Lamp Monitor output of the FRS instead to
the pin 2 as have to be. This is not a fault but a wrong connection.
Difficult to explain also because the pin of the frquency control was
I have restored the logical connection and the PLL works correctly. I have
found the Interface schematic thanks KO4BB's Manuals Repository. The
Austron 2200A is very similar to the 2201 model.
Actually the output frequency is +/- 5E-12 compared with a Z3016 (12 hours
of rubidium warmup). The 1 PPS alarm goes up randomly if I set the limit
under 1uS. Is not clear how it work.
My Austron 2200A isn't year 2K compatible. Firmware update available?
Ha ve some one experience with the settings to share?
