Acquiring LVDT and acceleration readings via PXI Chassis and NI-6361 module

Acquiring LVDT and acceleration readings via PXI Chassis and NI-6361 module

Hi all,

I am using PXI chassis with a NI-6361 module to acquire LVDT and acceleration readings for a dynamic test. Both sensors are voltage sensors with external signal conditioning devices in order to help acquire the signal. There are three options in DAQmx programming; voltage, voltage with excitation and a separate choice for LVDT and accelerometer. Since there is an external amplifier for both sensors and excitation frequencies and some other properties need to be specified, I would like to kindly ask which if the option needs to be selected for simulating the sensor in DAQmx.

Thanks a lot.
