Shunt Resistor on 6233

Solved!
Go to solution

I want to measure a small current and build a waveform to display on a scope. I am using a 6233 and have selected a 0.05Ohm shunt resistor which would produce the voltage drop for current expected and provide little disruption to my original circuit. The NI diagrams show placement of my external shunt across the AI points. Normally a shunt would be placed in series with the load. Where do I place my external shunt?

You place the shunt in series with the load as you said and then connect to your DAQ device per the NI instructions. Where is the confusion?
