Hi all

I have encounter a problem like in the topic http://forums.ni.com/ni/board/message?board.id=170&message.id=404676&query.id=250408.

I'm sorry for repeating of topic but I've read all of your advices and have not yet resolved problem. 

My task very simply: I use USB 6251, differential mode to measure voltage of battery Energizer 1.5V. But result shows >10V ??? Mean.vi shows bigger 4V (see the attached picture)

I don't understand what happed with my task?

Please help me!

Thank so much!

MC

Hello,

Thank you for posting to the NI Forums!

 

How do you have your battery connected? Are you using bias resistors? This could be a grounding problem and may be fixed if bias resistors are used. Check out Table 1 in this document and the differential configuration for a floating source.

Thank Flaugher

I did not connect bias resistors. But now I do another way: connect possitive pole of battery to the AI0 and other to the AI GRD, choose input configuration "RSE" and get good results.
