If a cluster is with two or more dominant species, different dominant species of the same layer were connected with "+," and the dominant species of different layers were connected with "-." At the sampling sites, amphibians, emergent plants, floating-leaved plants, and floating input plants were directly observed and recorded.
However, there were only 2 and 3 species for floating input plants and floating-leaved plants in the Poyang Lake, accounting for 4.65% and 6.98% of the total species.
The distribution area for floating input plant was very small, and the floating input plant was mainly located in small patches or sporadic distribution in the bay.
Similarly, Voltech Instruments' PM6000 also has a maximum of six elements with fully floating inputs. You can configure them as needed, for example as one AC input and five DC outputs or three-phase input and output.
* Independently isolated input channels and the floating inputs to take truly floating differential measurements from balanced 2-wire systems.
If you cannot turn off an I/O port or individual lines, tie unused pins high or low to eliminate floating inputs that can draw excessive power.
These floating inputs are prone to oscillating, especially in CMOS parts.
Depending on the voltage level at these floating inputs, short circuit currents could occur in the input stages of the active island, consuming significant power.
