A single-ended earth grounded data acquisition board have some channels fixed inputs as transducers. But when I connected extra channels as any of force transducer amplifiers, this causes standard deviation increase and some 50Hz noise in fixed channels and in the force transducer themselves as well. I already checked couldn't find any ground loop since the sources' DC grounds are not earth grounded.
But when I disconnect the force transducers the noise disappears and standard deviation decreases dramatically which is good. I notice that the force transducers have 78V common mode voltage which is a ghost voltage due to parasitic capacitance.
Im trapped because if I earth the DC supply of the force transducers I get rid of the common mode voltage but then this creates ground loops. But even I hook up the force transducer channel the noise comes back even though its earth is not grounded.
I was thinking to use an isolation amplifier at the end of each force transducer channel but that would require a lot of amplifiers.´
The force amplifier system with many cables shares the same ground and possibly corrupting the ground when hooked up to the daq because it is single ended(?)
Can an isolation amplifier be used to block common mode noises and capacitive coupling from the DC supply?
