61xx Models : DAQ Multifunction I/O Cable and Accessory Compatibility

Publish Date: Feb 11, 2019 | 2 Ratings | 3.00 out of 5 | Print

Overview

Use this guide to match your NI Multifunction I/O (MIO) 61xx models for PCI, PXI, and PXI Express (PXIe) 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) 61xx models (formerly referred to as NI S Series) are the previous generation of NI simultaneous sampling MIO (SMIO) DAQ 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.

It is important to work through this guide sequentially to identify and then pair up your device with compatible cables and accessories. To do this, complete the following steps:

  1. Find your module or device in the Device List.
  2. Use the Cable and Accessory Compatibility Tables to identify your device.
  3. Check the Known Limitations and Issues List for any known limitations you may encounter.
  4. Note: Using the page search functionality in your browser to locate your model may speed up this process, typically CTRL+F on Windows or ⌘+F on OS X.

3. Cable and Accessory Compatibility Tables

Find the compatibility table that matches the pin count and connector type of your device. If you have questions on terminology, refer to the Glossary. After you have identified the cable and accessory options for your device from this section, move to the Known Limitations and Issues List.

Note: To help keep the size down of the compatibility tables, the terms terminal block and connector block are used interchangeably.

4. Known Limitations and Issues List

This section is important to review because not every cable and accessory combination allows access to the full functionality of your NI DAQ simultaneous sampling Multifunction I/O 61xx device or module. This list contains notes about known limitations when using certain combinations of DAQ cables and accessories. If your device or cable is not listed in this section, there are no known exceptions for it.

Modules:

Review this table to identify potential limitations and known issues with your module.
Model Note
PXIe-6124

The NI 6124/6154 User Manual (August 2008), P/N 372613A-01, incorrectly lists SH68-* cables, which are SCSI 0.050 D-Type models. The correct shielded cable for this model is the VHDCI SHC68-68-EPM cable, as listed in this guide.


 Cables:

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 61xx Models. 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 61xx Models. 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 6110, 6111, 6122, 6123, 6132, or 6133 device or module. Refer to the S Series User Manual for more information.

  • 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.
  • D-Sub (DSUB) - An industry standard 37-pin D-Sub connector. 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.
