Use the following equations for calculating absolute accuracy:Absolute Accuracy = Reading * (Gain Error) + Range * (Offset Error) + Noise Uncertainty + Reading * (TB-4300B Gain Error)Gain Error = Residual AI Gain Error + Gain Tempco * (TempChangeFromLastInternalCal) + Reference Tempco * (TempChangeFromLastExternalCal)Offset Error = ResudialAIOffsetError + Offset Tempco * (TempChangeFromLastInternalCal) + INL_ErrorNoise Uncertainty = Random Noise * 3/sqrt(10000) TB-4300B Gain Error = TB-4300B Attenuator Tolerance + Attenuator Tempco * (TempChangeFrom23C)When the TB-4300B is connected, the module senses that the ranges are now 30V, 60V, 150V, and 300V, so we will use the 300V range for calculations. The TB-4300B attenuates signals by a factor of 30, which means we'll use the 10V numbers from the accuracy table in the PXIe-4300 Specifications document. We can also compute the Gain, Offset, and Noise Uncertainty of errors of the PXIe-4300 using the information found in this document. The TB-4300B Gain Error can be calculated using the information in the TB-4300B Manual. These calculations are shown below:Gain Error = 65ppm + (11.5 ppm * 1 deg C) + (5 ppm * 10 deg C) = 126.5 ppmOffset Error = 33 ppm + (10 ppm * 1 deg C) + 76 ppm = 119 ppmNoise Uncertainty = 30 * (208 uV * 3) / (sqrt(10000)) = 187 uVTB-4300B Gain Error = 500 ppm + 5 ppm * 10 deg C = 550 ppm
Noise Uncertainty is multiplied by 30 due to the attenuation ration of the TB-4300B. The absolute accuracy then calculates to:Absolute Accuracy = (200 V * 126.5 ppm) + (300 V * 119 ppm) + (187uV) + (200 V * 550 ppm) Absolute Accuracy = 25300 + 35700 + 187 uV + 110000 uV = 171187 uV = 171 mV
