Rubidium™ MG362x1A SeriesLow-Noise RF/Microwave SignalGenerators : General Information : Preparation for Storage/Shipment
Preparation for Storage/Shipment
The following paragraphs give instructions for preparing the MG362x1A for storage or shipment.
Preparation for Storage
Preparing the signal generator for storage consists of cleaning the unit, packing the inside with moisture-absorbing desiccant crystals, and storing the unit in a temperature environment that is maintained between –40°C and +75°C.
Preparation for Shipment
To provide maximum protection against damage in transit, the signal generator should be repackaged in the original shipping container. If this container is no longer available and the unit is being returned to Anritsu for repair, advise Anritsu Customer Service; they will send a new shipping container free of charge. In the event neither of these two options is possible, instructions for packaging and shipment are detailed on the next page.
Use a Suitable Container
Obtain a corrugated cardboard carton with a 125 kg test strength. This carton should have inside dimensions of no less than 15 cm larger than the unit dimensions to allow for cushioning.
Protect the Instrument
Surround the unit with polyethylene sheeting to protect the finish.
Cushion the Instrument
Cushion the instrument on all sides by tightly packing dunnage or urethane foam between the carton and the unit. Provide at least three inches of dunnage on all sides.
Seal the Container
Seal the carton by using either shipping tape or an industrial stapler.
Address the Container
If the instrument is being returned to Anritsu for service, mark the address of the appropriate Anritsu service center and your return address on the carton in one or more prominent locations.
