Default Input/Output Terminal Configurations

Version:
    Last Modified: November 16, 2017

    If you do not explicitly specify the input or output terminal configuration when you create a channel, NI-DAQmx automatically determines the default terminal configuration at run time. The following table lists the default terminal configurations for devices.

    Device Default Input Terminal Configuration Default Output Terminal Configuration
    AO Series N/A Referenced single-ended
    DSA Pseudodifferential Differential
    NI 60xx (E Series), NI 62xx (M Series), NI 63xx (X Series), NI ELVIS II, NI PCI-6010, NI USB-6001, NI USB-6002, NI USB-6003, NI USB-6008, NI USB-6009, and NI TC01 For devices with eight channels: differential for the first four channels, referenced single-ended for the next four channels. For devices with 16 channels or more: differential for eight channels followed by referenced single-ended for eight channels. For instance, channels 0-7, 16-23, and 32-39 are differential. Channels 8-15, 24-31, and 40-47 are referenced-single ended. Referenced single-ended
    myDAQ Differential for the analog input channels, referenced single-ended for the audio input channels. Referenced single-ended
    NI ELVIS II+ Referenced single-ended for scopeCh0 and scopeCh1. For other analog input channels: differential for channels 0-7, referenced single-ended for channels 8-15. Referenced single-ended
    NI USB-6000 Referenced single-ended N/A
    NI PXI-6132, NI PXI-6133, NI PXI-6143 Differential N/A
    NI PCI-6110, NI PCI-6111, NI 6115, NI 6120 Pseudodifferential Referenced single-ended
    NI PXI-42xx Differential N/A
    SCC Non-referenced single-ended Referenced single-ended
    SC Express Differential. On the NI 4353, the cold-junction compensation channels are referenced single ended by default. N/A
    SCXI Differential Differential
    NI 9201, NI USB-9201, NI 9203, NI 9208, NI 9217, NI 9221, NI USB-9221, NI 9775[1] Referenced single-ended N/A
    NI 9207 Differential for voltage channels, referenced single-ended for current channels N/A
    NI 9205, NI 9206, and NI 9209 For devices with 16 channels or more: differential for eight channels followed by referenced single-ended for eight channels. For instance, channels 0-7, 16-23, and 32-39 are differential. Channels 8-15, 24-31, and 40-47 are referenced-single ended. N/A
    FD-11603, FD-11613, FD-11637, NI 9202, NI 9210, NI 9211, NI ENET-9211, NI USB-9211A, NI WLS-9211, NI 9212, NI 9213, NI ENET-9213, NI USB-9213, NI WLS-9213, NI 9215, NI ENET-9215, NI USB-9215A, NI WLS-9215, NI 9216, NI 9218, NI 9219, NI ENET-9219, NI USB-9219, NI WLS-9219, NI 9220, NI 9224, NI 9225, NI 9226, NI 9227, NI 9229, NI USB-9229, NI 9235, NI 9236, NI 9237, NI 9228, NI ENET-9237, NI USB-9237, NI WLS-9237, NI 9238, NI 9239, NI USB-9239, NI 9246, NI 9247, NI 9250, NI 9251[1] Differential N/A
    NI 9230, NI 9232, NI 9233, NI USB-9233, NI 9234, NI ENET-9234, NI USB-9234, NI WLS-9234 Pseudodifferential N/A
    NI 9242, NI 9244 Nonreferenced single-ended for ai0, ai1, and ai2. Referenced single-ended for neutral.
    NI 9263, NI USB-9263, NI 9264, NI USB-9264, NI 9265, and NI USB-9265 N/A Referenced single-ended
    NI 9269 N/A Differential
