The following table lists the test equipment required for calibrating NI M/S Series Isolated devices.
|Calibrator||Fluke 5700A||If this instrument is unavailable, use a voltage source that is at least 10 ppm accurate for 16-bit voltage input devices. For 16-bit current input devices, use a current source that is at least 100 ppm accurate.|
|DMM||NI 4070||If this instrument is unavailable, use a multiranging 6 1/2-digit DMM with an accuracy of 40 ppm.|
|Counter||Agilent 53131A||If this instrument is unavailable, use a counter with an accuracy of 0.01%.|
|Resistor||—||(NI 6232/6233/6238/6239 Devices) For counter verification, use any 1 kΩ resistor.|
|Power Supply||NI 4110||(NI 6238/6239 Devices) For analog output verification, use any 10–30 VDC, 100 mA power supply. (NI 6232/6233/6238/6239 Devices) For counter verification, use any 5 VDC, 200 mA power supply.|
|Use with PXI modules.|
|Low thermal Copper EMF Plug-in Cable||Fluke 5440A-7002||Do not use standard banana cables.|
|Shielded DAQ Cable||NI DB37M-DB37F-EP,
|Use with NI 6154, NI 6230, and NI 6236 devices.|
|NI SH37F-37M-1||Use with NI 6232, NI 6233, NI 6238, and NI 6239 devices.|
|DAQ Accessory||NI CB-37F-LP||Low profile terminal block with 37 screw terminals.|
|NI CB-37FH||Horizontal DIN-mountable terminal block with 37–pin screw terminals.|
|NI CB-37FV||Vertical DIN-mountable terminal block with 37–pin screw terminals.|
|NI CB-37F-HVD||37-pin DIN rail screw terminal block, UL Recognized derated to 30 Vrms, 42.4 Vpk, or 60 VDC.|
The following setup and environmental conditions are required to ensure the NI M/S Series Isolated device meets published specifications.
Configure the isolated M/S Series device in Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX) to communicate with NI-DAQmx.
|Note When a device is configured with MAX, it is assigned a device identifier. Each function call uses this identifier to determine which DAQ device to calibrate.|
