Without seeing your circuit, it is difficult to say. If possible, try connecting a low voltage (<2.5 V) supply and see if you get the correct reading.

Sir,

i have connected a 1 v dc supply to one of the channels of ADC11 and started recording. it shows 2.5v always. is it due to any hardware problem?

Do you get the same on all channels?

Hi

It is not possible to import data to PicoLog.

It is possible to export data to Excel. You can save data as a CSV file that can be opened by Excel. You can copy and paste or use DDE.

I hope this helps

You can use your ADC11 with a 120 Ohm shunt resistor for measuring 4-20 mA signals.
