Built in Tare Function for TEDS load cells.

Status: New

When using TEDS load cells it would be useful to have a built in tare function  The null offset function only offsets the electrical value by the intialy measured amount.  This essentially shifts the calibration curve horizontally only.  The tare function could also shift the calibration curve vertically, in the load direction.  Since two point calibrations don't always create a line that goes through zero, a tare function is needed to get to zero.  Please see the attached VIs.  Also, check out my thread on this subject.

I'm going to move this idea over to the DAQ Idea Exchange so those R&D guys can get exposure to it since it will be their functionality to create if they choose so.
