Why does applying a filter with the Arithmetic Channel Calculation versus the Digital Filter Channel Calculation result in a different scaling factor on the y-axis?

All expressions in the Arithmetic Channel Calculation feature are evaluated by first converting any source data from a channel into un-prefixed units (e.g. if the source channel is in mV, it is converted to V by dividing by 1000). The original unit is not used to ensure that all calculations performed within the Arithmetic feature use the same units/scaling for all sources.  To match the original scaling found in the source data, use the 'Units:'  drop-down menu to define and apply the correct units/scaling to the output of the Arithmetic feature.

In contrast, the Digital Filter Channel Calculation automatically maintains the units/scaling found in the original source data channel.
