Hello @rakeshaashay.

After solving for two equations and two unknown variables, the multiplier is 2.525 and the offset is -2.625.  In DAQami, select the Channels tab and then select Custom units.  DAQami allows a user to enter their custom units; in this case I entered bar.  Then enter the calculated multiplier and offset values.

Hello @rakeshaashay.

Using y = m*x + b

m = multiplier

b = offset

(Eqn. 1) -0.1 = m*(1) + b

(Eqn. 2) 10 = m*(5) + b

Solve Eqn. 1 for b

Insert b into Eqn. 2 and solve for m.
