      Note  

      You must use the screws provided with the NI panel mounting kit because they are the correct depth and thread for the panel mounting plate. Tighten the screws to a torque of 1.3 N · m (11.5 lb · in.).

    3. Fasten the panel mounting plate to the surface using the screwdriver and screws that are appropriate for the surface. The maximum screw size is M5 or number 10.
