    • 1 The ambient temperature of a PXI system is defined as the temperature at the chassis fan inlet (air intake).
    • 2 Current source limits are programmable in Quadrant I (source).
    • 3 Current sink limits are fixed (not programmable) in Quadrant IV (sink).
    • 4 Total combined output current from all channels cannot exceed 3.1 A.
    • 5 For channel 0 in Quadrant IV (sink) when the terminal voltage drops below 1.2 V (sensing at the connector), the maximum sink current derates linearly from -3.1 A.
    • 6 Total output current for both channels combined cannot exceed 3.1 A
    • 7 For current output ≥1 A, accuracy is derated.
    • 8 Tested with 1 meter 18 AWG cables.
    • 9 Total output current for both channels combined cannot exceed 3.1 A
    • 10 For current output ≥500 mA, accuracy is derated.
    • 11 Pulse widths and logic levels are compliant with PXI Express Hardware Specification Revision 1.0 ECN 1.
    • 12 Input triggers can come from any source (PXI trigger or software trigger) and be exported to any PXI trigger line. This allows for easier multi-board synchronization regardless of the trigger source.
    • 13 Maximum source update rate is performed with the source delay set to 500 µs. This is sufficient for the output to settle within 1% of the requested level with a simple resistive load. As you adjust the source delay for your application's requirements, maximum rates may vary.
