10 voltages, only 6 GND sockets

Post by Jakidos »

I purchased a Picolog 1216. I need to measure 10 voltages simultaneously. The voltage range is below 2.5 mV. On the terminal board, i see only six ground sockets. How can I measure ten voltages simultaneously? Is possible to connect one ground to all voltage with for example a breadboard? Any better possibility? Thanks!

Hi Jakidos,

Yes, you could use a breadboard or strip board or a pcb mount terminal block (e.g. this one: https://richelectronics.co.uk/product/b ... ieces-eb90) with some tinned copper wire soldered to all of the pins, or it may be easier to just double up the connections to the on board terminal blocks (if they will fit).

Regards,
