1. Depth and Coverage of the CompactDAQ System Accessory Compatibility Guides

While this guide covers a broad range of configurations, it is not intended to cover every potential combination or use case. The most common and recommended solutions are presented. Configurations with known limitations are noted.

This guide is intended to cover current, legacy, and recently obsolete CompactDAQ Controllers and CompactDAQ Chassis and their cable and accessory options. The guide is not intended to cover cable or accessory options for other NI hardware families such as, CompactRIO System or C Series Module

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 are not covered in this guide and are not recommended.
