Sensor setting in DMU Kinematics

Hi everyboby
In DMU Kinematics in Catia, how is it possible to reset the initial values for the sensors?
In one of my simulations, when the angle between two bars in a joint is zero, sensor gives a value other than zero for this angle. The difference between the measured angles of two different times during a simulation is correct but the value of the angle at the moment is not correct and always there is an offset between the value from the sensor and real value. How is it possible to reset this sensor and remove this offset?

Thanks a bundle in advance

If you are measuring the angle between two lines;

Set the kinematic assembly to the zero position. Add a new line in the second part parallel to the other line in the first part. Then delete and recreate the angle sensor.
