I recently decided to use my NI 4351 DAQ board with the TBX-68T terminal block for simple voltage measurements - the problem is that I detect a huge grounding problem (at least 2.5v) - when I connect the terminal block to my experimental column I get a couple of minutes correct measurements but then the charge starts to build up - If I connect any channel to anything that is grounded - the charge diminished rapidly I tried all the options on virtual bench - checked ground reference on, and off - doesn't make any difference My experimental columns cannot be grounded. I checked 2 different boards and 2 different terminal block on 2 different pcs - the same problems Any solution to avoid the grounding errors?
For measuring signal sources that are not grounded, it is recommended to
provide a resistive path to ground on the signal wires. This will
allow any additional charge that builds up to be immediately dissapated.
