Why do I get an 0G1 error message?
A “0g1” failure has been reported after downloading a test program. A fixture and safety interlock was fitted. After removing the fixture, the test would download successfully.
The customer had grounded (connected to earth) a pin on the transformer that was connected to node 20 of the AT by the fixture.
Node 20 is used by the tester to measure any dc offsets that might be present before a test is ran.
The ground connection to node 20 stopped the offset measurement working properly.
Never make a fixture connection that takes node 20 to ground
0G(x) errors can also occur as a result of other faults within the AT3600 and may also occur due to high noise levels or poor grounding at the ac power input. Problems associated with grounding can sometimes be attributed to the server/editor PC being connected to a different ground from the AT3600.
A UPS is always recommended for use with the AT3600 or ATi
