Symptoms

WinDaq displays values that are not consistent with the input on channels containing DI-8B42-01 modules.

Cause

A design issue involving the DI-8B42 module that can cause the amplifier to oscillate when used with certain types of transmitters.

Resolution

To resolve these issues follow the steps below.

Place a 0.02µF capacitor across In+ and Ex+ on channels containing DI-8B42-01 modules.

Place the capacitor as shown below:
