iam using daqpad-mio-16xe-50,in this daqpad if i want to use diff ended signal,lets say channel 0 then i connect +ve wire in 0 pin and -ve wire in 8 pin. till now is alright,but manual say that groung the -ve pin in the al ground or in case mentioned in manual connect -ve pin to al gnd through resistor? what does this mean?why it is necessary?is it not sufficient to connect +ve & -ve wires to their respective pins?
if possible then answer me with the help of diagrams.
When using differential mode, and you are a grounded source, it is sufficient to connect only to +ve and -ve. If you are using a floating signal, like a battery or thermocouple, you need to add a bias resistor from -ve to AIGND.
