    • 1 The ambient temperature of a PXI system is defined as the temperature at the chassis fan inlet (air intake).
    • 2 Minimum programmable current limit/level is 2% of range.
    • 3 Measurement Categories CAT I and CAT O (Other) are equivalent. These test and measurement circuits are not intended for direct connection to the MAINs building installations of Measurement Categories CAT II, III, or CAT IV.
    • 4 Does not include load dependent settling time; niDCPower Auto Zero property or NIDCPOWER_ATTR_AUTO_ZERO attribute set to Off.
    • 5 Source-measure to Host and Maximum Source Update Rate are performed with the source delay set to 200 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 vary.
    • 6 Pulse widths and logic levels compliant with PXI Hardware Specification Revision 2.2.
    • 7 Input triggers can be re-exported.
