    1. Attach the DIN rail clip to the back of the module. Tighten the screws to a maximum torque of 1.3 N · m (11.5 lb · in.).

      You must use the screws provided with the NI DIN rail mounting kit because they are the correct depth and thread for the DIN rail clip.

    2. Snap the DIN rail clip onto the DIN rail.
      • Observe the spacing dimensions in the Mounting Requirements section.
