    • 1 The ambient temperature of a PXI system is defined as the temperature at the chassis fan inlet (air intake).
    • 2 For increased capability, NI recommends installing the PXIe-4162 in a chassis with slot cooling capacity ≥58 W.
    • 3 Temperature coefficient applies beyond 23 °C ± 5 °C within 5 °C of Tcal.
    • 4 Temperature coefficient applies beyond 23 °C ± 5 °C within 5 °C of Tcal.
    • 5 100 mA range available only when installed in chassis with slot cooling capacity ≥58 W. 60 mA range available in all other compatible chassis.
    • 6 Current limit set to ≥1 mA and ≥10% of the selected current limit range. PXIe-4162 configured for fast transient response.
    • 7 To settle to 0.1% of voltage step.
    • 8 PXIe-4162 configured for fast transient response.
    • 9 To recover within ±20 mV after a load current change from 10% to 90% of range.
    • 10 20 Hz to 20 MHz bandwidth. PXIe-4162 configured for normal transient response. Measured at the end of the 1 m SHDB62M-DB62M-LL cable.
    • 11 At connector pins when using local sense.
    • 12 Where VOutput HI is the voltage at the Output HI pin in the same channel as a Sense HI, Sense LO, or Guard pin.
    • 13 All channels averaged. Channel 11 has degraded performance.
    • 14 All channels averaged. In the 100 mA range, channel 4 has degraded performance.
    • 15 When source-measuring, both the NI-DCPower Source Delay and Aperture Time properties affect the sampling rate. When taking a measure record, only the Aperture Time property affects the sampling rate.
    • 16 Load dependent settling time is not included. Normal DC noise rejection is used.
    • 17 As the source delay is adjusted or if advanced sequencing is used, maximum source update rates may vary.
    • 18 Pulse widths and logic levels are compliant with PXI Express Hardware Specification Revision 1.0 ECN 1.
    • 19 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.
    • 20 Not all chassis with slot cooling capacity ≥58 W can achieve this ambient temperature range. Refer to PXI chassis specifications to determine the ambient temperature ranges your chassis can achieve.
