Having the ability to connected a cDAQ chassis to a PoE or PoE+ switch.

Then the cDAQ does not have to be powered locally.

Ethernet is throughout our facility the ability to drop a cDAQ chassis with sensors and not worrying about power would be helpful.

Currently I am using external hardware to power cDAQ chassis off of PoE+ switch, it would be nice if it was integrated.

One of my nodes includes 4-slot chassis with two CAN cards, a temperature card and an accelerator card.

I have an upcoming requirement for connecting two test equipment racks so that one contains a control computer and PXI chassis and the second rack contains another PXI chassis. The control computer will include a two-port MXI Master PXIe card, and each PXI chassis an MXI Slave card.

The problem arises that there is no means to bring out an MXI cable from one rack to the other, except through a hole, rather than a proper feed-through connector.

I can design and build a back-to-back pair of MXI matching Molex connectors on a small PCB, but a qualified, tested, and approved OEM solution would be much better.
