USB 6341 +5V (pin96) to AI 0 (pin1) question

Hi - If i connect +5V (pin96) to AI 0 (pin1) on my USB-6341 will the AI 0 only draw a minimum current to see the 5 volts or will I burn out the channel/resistor?

Thanks in advance.

Hello C2PO

 

You can connect it and measure the 5V without blowing the channel. This a very common test that you can do when you suspect that the AI is not working properly and you want to check it against a know voltage source.

 

Warm regards
