How to use all analog outputs with NI PCIe-6323

Solved!
Go to solution

Hi there,

I'm using the PCIe-6232 card together with a connector block (SCB-68A). Right now my LabView code provides two analog outputs, however, I want to add a third one. In principle, I can use 4 analog outputs based on the card specifications, but the connector block only has 2. Do I need a second connector block if I want only another analog output?

Thanks for your help!

Refer to Figure 8 of this document, it shows all four AO's available through Connector 1:

EDIT: Now I am confused the pinouts here only show 2 AO's per Connectors:

Probably need another SCB-68 then...

I think you may be misreading that figure.  It clearly only shows AO2 and AO3 available through Connector 1.  AO0 and AO1 are available through connector 0 per Figure 2.

 

In other words, yes, you need a second cable and connector block to access the other two AOs.

Yes a definite misread on my part, thanks for re-checking.
