autozero
Explanation:
zéro = zero.
Auto = prefix standing for automatic.
Faire un autozéro = do an automatic zero, zero automatically, autozero.

In English you can do something that you can't do in French : create a verb from a substantive very easily.
"Faire un autozéro sur la solution tampon" should simply be translated by "autozero on the buffer solution".

RF Power Meter
Auto Zero Mode

TITLE

RF Power Meter - Auto Zero Mode

ABSTRACT

The RF Power Meter is a general purpose digital power meter intended for RF and microwave power measurements. ZER0 is used to adjust the Power Meter's internal circuitry for a 0 Power indication when no power is applied to the sensor.

TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION

To determine whether or not the Power Meter needs to be zeroed, remove any power to the sensor and then read the front panel display. If the display does not indicate 0 power, the Power Meter needs to be zeroed. Any residual nonzero reading, if not corrected, will be added to all subsequent measurements, resulting in an error. This error may be insignificant when measuring moderate to high power values, but it can be unacceptable when measuring low power values.

The power meter display shows eight dashes and a moving decimal point while zeroing. When the zeroing is completed, new zero values are stored and the instrument is returned to its previous state.
PLEASE 0(Error 15 or 16, sensor dependent)is displayed when the zero reference drifts negative.
If a measurement is attempted prior to a successful auto-zero of the Power Meter, a value of l000 will be placed in the user specified variable.
The maximum power for AUTO-ZER0 mode in dBm is less than or equal to -70 dBm.
During ZER0-POWER mode with no RF power applied, the power meter will automatically compensate for internal drifts and return a value in the user specified variable.
If the value is less than -70 dBm, then a successful measurement was made.
If the value is greater than -70 dBm, then the power meter must be auto-zeroed.
