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 Counter/Timer 66xx (formerly TIO Series) 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.

Devices/Modules:

Review this table to identify potential limitations and known issues with your module.
Model Note
PCI-6624
PXI-6624
To enable connection on all lines of the 6624 with the R1005050 cable, you must connect to two 50-pin connector blocks. The CB-100 kit contains two CB-50 connector blocks and a R1005050 cable.
