Possible to repair a broken GPIB-Enet 100 ?

Go to solution

Hi community,


We have a few old GPIB Ent / 100 controller.

One is yesterday broken, no power light, LED etc. are possible the power consumtion goes at 12 V to 25mA.


It is possible to repair, a schematic or a block diagram it probably not available official or ?



If its a simple voltage regulator, Capacitor or a coil to replace I would try it... otherwise it goes in the stock room with old the other expensive broken stuff from Agilent, R&S we call it RF museum.


We have several funny possibility to repair PCB with SMT / THT stuff on IC level in our lab 🙂


Or a cheap way to fix it without buy a new one for 2000 Euro ?


Also a 650 euro half broken NI USB-GPIB adapter is part in our Museum, and waiting for a new life, if some one has repair it before  🙂

If someone did this before to fix it, feedback are very welcome.


And we already lost the guarantee on 10 years old equipment if we do it on or own ...



Regard and have nice christmas

My strong recommendation is to request repair (RMA).

Would be better to buy a new one.

The best way to thank, is to give KUDOS
