    For additional information related to the Pulse Voltage or Pulse Current settings of the Output Function, for the PXIe-4137 (40W), including pulse on time and duty cycle limits for a particular operating point, refer to Pulsed Operation. For supplementary examples, refer to Examples of Determining Extended Range Pulse Parameters and Optimizing Slew Rate using NI SourceAdapt.

    DC sourcing power and sinking power are limited to the values in the following table, regardless of output voltage. [3]

    Table 2. DC Sourcing & Sinking Power
    Model Variant Chassis Type DC Sourcing Power DC Sinking Power
    PXIe-4137 (40W) ≥58 W Slot Cooling Capacity 40 W 40 W
    <58 W Slot Cooling Capacity 20 W 12 W
    PXIe-4137 (20W) ≥58 W Slot Cooling Capacity 20 W 12 W
    <58 W Slot Cooling Capacity 20 W 12 W

    Limit DC power sinking to 12 W where applicable as indicated in the above table. For <58 W cooling slots,

    • Additional derating applies to sinking power when operating at an ambient temperature of >45 °C.
    • If the PXI Express chassis has multiple fan speed settings, set the fans to the highest setting.
    • 1 Voltage levels and limits >|40 VDC| require the safety interlock input to be closed.
    • 2 Current is limited to 1 A DC. Higher levels are pulsing only.
    • 3 Power limit defined by voltage measured between HI and LO terminals.
