Issue Details

I have a Data Acquisition (DAQ) device or module and I have computed the Absolute Accuracy of my device following this steps. How can I convert the Absolute Accuracy I found in the measurement units of my sensor?


The Absolute Accuracy calculated is expressed in millivolts, therefore you need to know the sensitivity of your sensor related to the specific voltage input acquired: multiplying such value for the Absolute Accuracy gives the accuracy of the measurements in the units of a sensor.
