*RST Command on a E5071C



Does anyone know if the *RST command affects the calibration of a E5071C?  I cannot find the answer anywhere.


Thanks in advance.

I think it would be best answered by the manufacturer - you would get better visibility on Keysight forum than NI forum.

Most of the newer instruments will not lose their calibration information with basic commands like *RST.


If you saved (or not) different settings for any of these values listed in the manual in Appendix C on page 633 then it will default back to the factory settings for those Cal settings; however, those saved Cal settings can be recalled back as your desired settings.
