Grounding Considerations for Improved Measurements


Learn how grounding can determine how a measurement system should be connected for the most accurate measurements. Article topics include grounded signal sources, floating signal sources, differential measurements, single-ended measurements, and the proper signal and measurement configuration.

This white paper is part of our Instrument Fundamentals Series.

Topics Covered

  • Grounding and measurements
  • Signal sources: grounded or ground-referenced, ungrounded or floating
  • Measurement systems: differential, single-ended, ground-reference single ended (GRSE), non-referenced single ended
  • Signal source configurations: grounded, floating
