The Enable Error Correction check box is used to enable or disable the error correction feature. No matter what setting is used, the controller monitors the error detection circuits and reports error conditions.
If error correction is enabled, the controller attempts to correct errors that are detected. The method by which corrections are performed is selectable. Most errors are correctable, and upon successful correction, the controller signals that a correctable error has occurred and was corrected. For errors that are not correctable, the controller signals that an uncorrectable error has occurred.
If error correction is disabled, the controller does not attempt to correct errors. At the first error event, the controller stops scanning after reporting the error condition. Further, when error correction is disabled, the error classification feature is also disabled.
