Can I connect 24V to COM on a NI 9205?

Highlighted
I would like to use 4 differential measurements on a NI 9205. All AIs pins would have voltages between 19V and 24V.
According to the 9205 manual the AIs should be within 10V of COM. Can I just connect 24V to COM?
 
Thanks

Hi Pierre,
The module should remain isolated, and you can connect the common to the 24 V DC and measure your differential pairs.
If you need much higher isolation then you should consider the 9206, but for 24 V the 9205 will do the job.  All voltages mus be within +- 10 V of the voltage on the common pin
(+- 10.6 Volts is the absolute limit when you reach the limit of the A to D converter).
Hope this helps.
Cheers
Stephen
