Connecting ER-8 to NI USB 6259

Hi,

I need to operate the relays in an NI ER-8 using digital output signals from an NI USB 6259 multifunction DAQ, to operate some external high voltage equipments. But I'm a bit confused about the connection, as my DAQ board has screw terminals for connections and the ER-8 has a dual 50 pin J1 connector. What connection accessories would help me to make the required connections. Any help would be highly appreciated.

 

Thanks,

Partha

That's just a standard ribbon cable. Order one from the accessories on the product page or run to your electronics store.

Hello Partha,

 

You can get the ribbon cable (NB1) suggested by Dennis from here.

 

Additionally, there are some accessories (CB-50LP) that could facilitate the connection.

 

Regards,
