60xx/60xxE Models: DAQ Multifunction I/O Cable and Accessory Compatibility Guide

Publish Date: Feb 11, 2019 | 0 Ratings | 0.00 out of 5 | Print

Overview

Use this guide to match your NI Multifunction I/O (MIO) 60xx/60xxE Models PCI, PXI, or PCMCIA DAQ device with a compatible cable and accessory to meet the needs of your application, replacing or expanding your current configuration, or verifying that existing parts can be used in a different configuration.

NI Multifunction I/O (MIO) 60xx Models (formerly referred to as NI B Series and E Series) are the legacy generation of NI MIO hardware. They allow for analog, digital and counter input and output through a variety of connectivity options.

This page is part of the NI DAQ Multifunction I/O Cable and Accessory Compatibility Guide.

4. Known Limitations and Issues List

This section is important to review as not every cable and accessory combination allows access to the full functionality of your NI DAQ Multifunction 60xx/60xxE (formerly B Series and E Series) device or module. This list contains notes about known limitations when using certain combinations of DAQ cables and accessories.  If your device is not listed in this section, there are no known exceptions.

Devices:

Review this table to identify potential limitations and known issues with your device or module.
Model Note
6025E To enable connection on all lines of the device/module with the cable, you must connect to two 50-pin connector blocks. The CB-100 kit contains two CB-50 connector blocks and a R1005050 cable.
6031E The SCC-68 User Guide (August 2006), P/N 374748B-01, incorrectly omits PCI/PXI-6031E support with the SCC-68.


 Cables:

Review this table for alternative cabling options and known limitations.
Model Note
SHC68-68-EPM For VHDCI connections NI recommends that you use the SHC68-68-EPM cable; however, an SH68-68-EP cable will work with NI Multifunction I/O 60xx/60xxE Models (formerly B Series and E Series). The SHC68-68-EPM cable is a newer design featuring additional shielding and specific cable pairings to improve noise performance.
SHC68-C68-EPM The SHC68-C68-EPM can be used for any device or module for which the SHC68-68-EPM is recommended. The SHC68-C68-EPM is intended for custom breakout fixtures that use the VHDCI 0.8 mm connector. DAQ accessories only feature a SCSI 0.050 D-Type connector and will not work with this cable.
SH68-68-EPM For SCSI 0.050 D-Type connections NI recommends that you use the SH68-68-EPM cable; however, an SH68-68-EP cable will work with NI Multifunction I/O 60xx/60xxE Models (formerly B Series and E Series). The SH68-68-EPM cable is a newer design featuring additional shielding and specific cable pairings to improve noise performance.
SH68-50 Some functionality is unavailable when you use the SH68-50 cable with the NI 6013, 6014, 6023E, 6024E, 6036E device or module.

5. Glossary

Review the DAQ Cable and Accessory Guides for more information about this terminology and other descriptors.

  • 0.050 D-Type - Industry standard SCSI connector standard featuring 0.050 pin spacing that is used in 50, 68 and 100-position DAQ cable and accessory connections. Click here for an example (68-pin).
  • D-Sub (DSUB) - Industry standard D-Sub connector that is used on 37-pin DAQ cable and accessory connections. Click here for an example.
  • Ribbon Cable - A low-cost unshielded cable solution. Click here for an example.
  • Shielded Cable - A high performance cable solution that offers noise reduction through shielded conductors. Click here for an example.
  • Shielded Terminal Block or Connector Block - A high performance accessory solution offering very low-noise signal termination through shielding. Click here for an example.
  • Unshielded Terminal Block or Connector Block - An alternative low cost accessory solution that does not offer shielding. Click here for an example.
  • Very-High-Density Cable Interconnect (VHDCI) - An improvement on the SCSI 68-pin connector featuring .8 mm pin spacing, allowing a smaller footprint and fewer bent pins during connection. Click here for an example.

6. Ordering Information

Note: NI 60xx/60xxE are considered legacy DAQ Multifunction I/O devices and modules. National Instruments recommends using PCIe/PXIe/USB-63xx models (formerly X Series) or PCI/PXI/USB-62xx (formerly M Series) models for new systems. 

When purchasing an NI DAQ Multifunction I/O 60xx/60xxE Model (formerly B Series and E Series) device or module, for ease of use, the cables and accessories are listed on the product selection page. To begin browsing NI DAQ devices and modules, visit ni.com/daq.

You may also purchase your cables and accessories separately. Click here to browse cables and terminal blocks for NI DAQ devices and modules.
