U3-HV : drop of voltage over 3.6V

i am using a U3-HV with labview 11. In order to make AI readings over 2.4V I have set the negative channels to 32. When my input gets higher than 3.6V the readingsfalls back to 2.6V. Is there a way to avoid this drop by changing a parameter in the program? perhaps via the Control Pannel of your software? Having a reading blocked at 3.6V for any measures over 3.6V would be great.


Many thanks,

That is the way the 0-3.6V input behaves in hardware.  When you go over 3.6V the protection diodes start to clamp and that pushes the voltage reading back down.  Consider using an LJTick-Divider.
