setting up cRIO 9056 with NI 9203 and Cerabar pressure sensor

Solved!
Go to solution

I just purchased the kit on the photo and I see all devices on MAX. I am in doubt how to connect the pressure sensor - from where do I get the supply voltage? I understood that the kit would include a voltage source for the instruments. what do I miss here?

Can't see a photo you are referring to.

 

First understand if your sensor needs a 2-wire, 3-wire or 4-wire connection (from sensor manual/datasheet):

The NI-9203 does not provide a internally derived power supply pin, so you depending on the 2/3/4 wire connection you will probably need to provide power externally - but that could be from the 24VDC supply if that voltage is suitable for your sensor.

 

Hope this helps,
