Hello @Mackenzie Cox.

The vendor's datasheet shows four terminals on the transducer: '+' (External excitation voltage +), '-' (External excitation voltage -), output, and ground.  Connect an external excitation voltage source (14-36 VDC) to the '+' and '-' terminals.   Connect the 'Output' and 'Ground' terminals to a multimeter set to VDC or an oscilloscope.  Leave the USB-2416 module out of your tests at this point.




Apply pressure to the transducer and observe if the multimeter's readings increase; between 0 -10 VDC.  Please report your results and images if available.
