9421 input impedance

Does anybody know what the input impedance of an NI 9421 is?

Hi Bryan,

We do not spec an input impedance for this module because the inputs use a current-limiting architecture, so the input impedence is dynamic based on the voltage.  You could use the <7mA max input current spec in conjunction with your expected source voltage to calculate a pseudo minimum input impedence.  Keep in mind that this is dynamic and the 7mA value is more of a guideline since it is dependent on the circuit you have attached to the input of the NI 9421.
