Calibrating string pot in LMS Test.Lab?


I have a string pot hooked up to LMS Test.Lab.  In Signature, I can see that the level changes as a exercise the string pot, so I am sure it is connected properly.


How can I calibrate it?  I want to test it a 0 mm, 50 mm, and 100 mm of displacement and fit a line to the data to create a calibration curve.

On the Calibration worksheet, in the top right corner switch from Relative Calibration to DC Calibration.  You can then setup your table (be careful of your default displacement unit) and then measure each step in the table.  We will then show the Sensivity and Offset and when Accepted it will be added to Channel Setup and used.
