what's the max voltage for PFI in the M series card?

I'm looking for conect a standard encoder with power supply equal to 12Vdc, so also the two output channels will be with 12Vdc square vawe output. Are there some problem with the PFI8 & 10 suggest for this function using 12Vdc (is the max level equal to 5,25 or 20Volt?)
Thank you for cooperations

The Maximum input voltage for the M Series Boards is specified in the Board Specifications. In there you can read a spec for Maximum Input Working voltage of 5.25 V. The maximum isolation voltage is specified to be +/- 20 V.
You should partition your signal to 5 Volts before inputting it on a PFI line.

You can find the specs here:
