PXI-8532 Output Supply

 

 

Does anyone happen to if the output voltage of the PXI-8532 can be software selected between 10V and 30VDC? Our particular test application requires testing a DNET device at max and min supply voltage.

 

Thanks!

Yes, the board has a Vbat Input to take external power supply between 10 and 30 volts.

Thanks, 

 

Would you happen to know the difference between the CAN Reference GND and the Optional CAN Reference GND shown in the Datasheet? From my research I believe the only connections I need to make are CAN H, CAN L, and CAN REF GND? My DNET device will have its own seperate supply, im assuming?

Let me correct myself, what I mean is that I do not need to supply power to the DNET card.

Yes, the board doesn't need external power it is supplied internally.
