1. Using this C Series I/O Cable and Accessory Guide

This guide is intended to cover connectors and cables for use with C Series Modules. It does not explicitly cover other NI product families such as DAQ Multifunction I/O, Digital Waveform Instruments (formerly HSDIO), or R Series. It also does not cover legacy or End of Life (EOL) parts or products. Additionally, these products are supported in cRIO and/or cDAQ chassis, but this guide does not cover chassis accessories.

Note: Using the page search functionality in your browser to locate your model may speed up this process. This is typically CTRL+F on Windows or ⌘+F on MacOS.

2. Finding Your C Series Module

This page is arranged by first having you identify the connector type on your C Series Module, locating the information for your specific model, and then choosing the accessory or cable combination that best fits your needs.

How to identify the model number of your C Series Module:

The model number of the C Series Module is printed on the faceplate of the module and also in the Getting Started that ships with the module.

How to identify the part number (P/N)  and revision of your C Series Module:

The assembly part number and revision of the C Series Module is printed on a label adhered directly to the back of the module. The part number should be formatted as a 10-character alphanumeric string ######<REV>-#<VER>L. For example, a valid part number would be 157874A-01L. In this example, the board would be revision A and version 1.


Part Number highlighted in green followed by serial number highlighted in blue.
