C Series with Spring Terminal Front Connection: I/O Cable & Accessory Guide
Updated Sep 4, 2020
Use this guide to match your C Series Modules with spring terminal front connection with a compatible cable and accessory to meet the needs of your application, whether you are creating a new configuration, replacing or expanding your current configuration, or verifying that existing parts can be used in a different configuration.
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.
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.
