All the setting values of the independently scanned controllers are listed under corresponding NXsensor groups. Similarly, seperate NXsensor groups are used to store the readings from each measurement sensor.
For example, in a temperature-dependent IV measurement, the temperature and voltage must be present as independently scanned controllers and the current sensor must also be present with its readings.
independent_controllers: (required) NX_CHAR
A list of names of NXsensor groups used as independently scanned controllers.
measurement_sensors: (required) NX_CHAR
A list of names of NXsensor groups used as measurement sensors.

For each point in the scan space, either the nominal setpoint of an independently scanned controller or a representative average value of a measurement sensor is registered.
The length of each sensor’s data value array stored in this group should be equal to the number of scan points probed in this scan. For every scan point [N], the corresponding sensor value can be picked from index [N]. This allows the scan to be made in any order as the user describes above in the experiment. We get matching values simply using the index of the scan point.
