Short answer: You should use the raw data and station metadata whenever
In principle you might be able to misuse the PPSD(...,
special_handling='ringlaser') setting and using a dictionary with
'sensitivity': 1 as `metadata`. But you're on your own with this special
tinkering. I'd really recommend you use raw data and station metadata.
P.S.: How do you expect PPSD to know what units the data is you feed it?
There is no way for PPSD to know this, in general it is assumed that all
data that enter it are raw digitized data (i.e. the data described by
station metadata in SEED or StationXML)
