FieldDAQ Calibration

Last Modified: July 16, 2019

FieldDAQ devices use software calibration to adjust the software scaling of signals read from and produced by your device. Using a precise reference signal, your device measures and calculates scaling constants for analog input. The scaling constants are stored in nonvolatile memory (EEPROM) on your device. Frequent calibration produces the most stable and repeatable measurement performance. The device is not harmed in any way if you recalibrate it often.

  • Calibrating your device takes some time. Do not be alarmed if the Adjust FieldDAQ Calibration function/VI takes several seconds to execute.
  • For best results, stop any ongoing tasks and disconnect any unnecessary external connections before running calibration.

FieldDAQ devices do not self-calibrate or automatically calibrate. You must use a manual procedure to calibrate these devices.

FieldDAQ devices include the FD-11601, FD-11603, FD-11605, FD-11613, FD-11614, FD-11634, and FD-11637.
