Property of DAQmx Channel

Specifies the type of Wheatstone bridge connected to the channel.

Full Bridge (10182) Sensor is a full bridge. If you set AI.Excit.UseForScaling to TRUE, NI-DAQmx divides the measurement by the excitation value. Many sensors scale data to native units using scaling of volts per excitation.
Half Bridge (10187) Sensor is a half bridge. If you set AI.Excit.UseForScaling to TRUE, NI-DAQmx divides the measurement by the excitation value. Many sensors scale data to native units using scaling of volts per excitation.
No Bridge (10228) Sensor is not a Wheatstone bridge.
Quarter Bridge (10270) Sensor is a quarter bridge. If you set AI.Excit.UseForScaling to TRUE, NI-DAQmx divides the measurement by the excitation value. Many sensors scale data to native units using scaling of volts per excitation.
