    Signal Reference Description

    AI GND

    Analog Input Ground— These terminals are the input bias current return point. All ground references—AI GND, AO GND, and D GND—are connected on the device. AI GND, AO GND, and D GND are isolated from earth ground and chassis ground.

    AI <0..3>+, AI <0..3>-

    Analog Input ChannelsFor differential measurements, AI+ and AI- are the positive and negative inputs of a differential analog input channel. AI± are isolated from earth ground and chassis ground.

    AO <0..3>

    AO GND

    Analog Output Channels—These terminals supply voltage output. AO channels are isolated from earth ground and chassis ground.

    AO GND

    Analog Output GroundAO GND is the reference for AO. All ground references—AI GND, AO GND, and D GND—are connected on the device. AI GND, AO GND, and D GND are isolated from earth ground and chassis ground.

    D GND

    Digital GroundD GND supplies the reference for port 0 and port 1 digital channels, and PFI. All ground references—AI GND, AO GND, and D GND—are connected on the device. AI GND, AO GND, and D GND are isolated from earth ground and chassis ground.

    PFI <0..5>/P0.<0..5>

    P0.GND

    Programmable Function Interface or Static Digital Input ChannelsEach PFI terminal can be used to supply an external source for AI, AO, or counter/timer inputs. You also can use these terminals as static digital input lines. The PFI terminals are isolated from earth ground and chassis ground.

    PFI <6..9>/P1.<0..3>

    P1.GND

    Programmable Function Interface or Static Digital Output ChannelsEach PFI terminal can be used to supply an external source for AI, AO, or counter/timer outputs. You also can use these terminals as static digital output lines. The PFI terminals are isolated from earth ground and chassis ground.

    NC

    No connect—Do not connect signals to this terminal.

    CAL +, CAL -

    External Calibration References—CAL+ supplies the positive reference during external calibration of the device. CAL- supplies the negative reference during external calibration of the device.
