Overview

This guide describes how to select an NI Data Acquisition (DAQ) cable or accessory that is compatible with your NI DAQ hardware. When working with NI Multifunction I/O (MIO) models such as 63xx, 62xx, 61xx, 60xxE, or 60xx, (formerly X Series, M Series, S Series, E Series, B Series respectively), NI 65xx Digital Input/Output (DIO), NI 67xx Analog Output (AO), or NI 66xx Counter/Timer (TIO) devices, there are many choices or decisions available. This guide recommends a variety of options whether you're looking for high performance, low noise, low cost, or a custom solution for your cable, terminal block, or connector block.

2. Depth and Coverage of the DAQ Cable and Accessory Compatibility Guides

While these guides cover a broad range of configurations, to stay concise, they are not intended to cover every potential combination or use case. The most common and recommended solutions are presented. Configurations with known limitations are noted.

These guides are intended to cover current, legacy, and recently obsoleted NI DAQ hardware devices, and their cable and accessory options. They do not cover long-time end of life (EOL) NI DAQ products, and do not cover EOL cable or accessory options. The guide is not intended to cover cable or accessory options for other NI hardware families such as RF, Digital Waveform Instruments (formerly HSDIO), Digital Pattern Instruments, NI High-Speed Serial Instruments, C Series, or reconfigurable I/O (formerly R Series).

Some cables or accessories from other NI product families may share the same connector or visually appear the same, but typically come with limitations, incompatibilities, or safety concerns. For this reason, unless expressly mentioned in this guide, compatibility with other NI cables and accessories is not covered in this guide and is not recommended.

3. Finding Your Device or Module Model

These pages are arranged by first having you identify your hardware model and then choose the accessory or cable combination that best fits your needs. You will first need to select the correct guide for your product's family, using the Find Your DAQ Cable and Accessory Compatibility Guide section. After you have opened the page for your product family, follow the directions to identify which cables, terminal blocks, or connector blocks will meet your needs.

To start, your module or device's model number can be found on the physical device or in software.


How to locate your model number on the physical device:

If your device is already installed it may be easier to locate the model number in software, below.

  • PCI and PCI Express (PCIe) devices: Model numbers are typically found on the faceplate of the card near the connector. Click here for an example. Some models also have the product family printed on the shielding of the card.
  • PXI and PXI Express (PXIe) modules: Model numbers are typically found at the top of the faceplate of the card. Click here for an example. Some models also have the product family printed on the shielding of the card. Click here for an example.
  • USB devices: Model numbers can be found on the enclosure.

 

How to locate your model number in software:

If you've already installed NI Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX) and NI-DAQmx, complete the following steps.

  1. Open NI Measurement & Automation Explorer (NI MAX).
  2. Select My System»Devices and Interfaces .
    • PCI, PCI Express (PCIe), and USB devices are listed as NI PCI-,NI PCIe- or NI USB- followed by the model number.
    • PXI and PXI Express (PXIe) modules are listed under their chassis, which you will have to click to expand. Modules are listed as NI PXI- or NI PXIe- followed by the model number.
