Spirent TestCenter : Why do I have temperature (sensor) problem on Spirent Testcenter 11U ?


Temperature warnings and errors on new 11U chassis. The warnings and errors are swapping within seconds or minutes since starting the equipment ... giving error in attachment:


  1. First power down the chassis and using the black button on front of chassis.
  2. When the front is shut down, power down on the back of the chassis by turning off the switch and/or removing the power cords.
  3. Reseat the Controller 11U, Power Supplies, and Fan Tray.
  4. Remove the line cards (test Modules) but do not reinsert the line cards into the slots.
  5. Power up in reverse order: power up on the back first by turning on the switch and/or plugging in the power cords.
  6. Next press the black button on the front of the chassis.
  7. Wait up to one hour, if required, for power up to be completed.
  8. When powered-up successfully, re-insert the first line card.
  9. Continue inserting one card at a time, waiting for each to fully initialize before inserting the next.
  10. It may be useful to observe the following information using the TestCenter Application after the chassis boots up and after each card boots up: GUI – Tools -> Equipment Information ->Diagnostic -> Equipment -> (Chassis IP) -> Temperature, Power Supply Status, and Fan Status
