PXIe-4162 Ranges

Version:
    Last Modified: January 29, 2019

    The measurement range is implicitly selected based on the configured output range. You cannot change the measurement range independent of the output range.

    The selected measurement range is large enough to measure any voltage or current within the configured output range.

    Voltage Ranges

    For voltage output, the PXIe-4162 uses the ranges shown in the following tables.

    Channel[1] Voltage Level Range Voltage Level
    0 to 11 24 V -24 V to + 24 V
    Table 1. Current Limits
    Channel Limit Chassis Slot Cooling Capacity
    ≥58 W 38 W
    0 to 11 Current Limit Range 10 µA
    100 µA
    1 mA
    10 mA
    100 mA 60 mA
    Current Limit 100 nA to 10 µA
    1 µA to 100 µA
    10 µA to 1 mA
    100 µA to 10 mA
    1 mA to 100 mA 1 mA to 60 mA

    Current Ranges

    For current output, the PXIe-4162 uses the ranges shown in the following table.

    Table 2. Current Levels
    Channel[1] Level Chassis Slot Cooling Capacity
    ≥58 W 38 W
    0 to 11 Current Level Range 10 µA
    100 µA
    1 mA
    10 mA
    100 mA 60 mA
    Current Level -10 µA to +10 µA
    -100 µA to +100 µA
    -1 mA to +1 mA
    -10 mA to +10 mA
    -100 mA to +100 mA -60 mA to +60 mA

    Note  

    If a range that is not listed in the previous tables is selected, NI-DCPower coerces the range to the next highest range. For example, requesting a 2 mA current limit range on Channel 0 of the PXIe-4162 coerces the current limit range to 10 mA.

    Overranging

    Enabling overranging for a particular channel extends voltage and current output capabilities from 100% to 105% for the output range. Overranging is applicable to output ranges only and does not apply to measurement ranges. Measurements in any given range may be made up to 105% of the range by default without enabling overranging.

    • 1 Supports 5% overranging when overranging is enabled.
