Possible connectors for NI 9212

Solved!

Hi, we try to use NI 9212 to replace our old Thermocouple devices, but the screw terminals are too long for the space we current have. And we wonder if there are more possible choices of terminals that we could connect to the NI 9212 except the screw terminal that came with and the mini TC?

Hi Estellvolla07,

 

I did some research on terminal blocks that are compatible with the NI 9212, and those two are the only ones that will work. The article below confirms this.

 

Connecting Thermocouples to NI-9210 and NI-9212 Modules

An option moving forward is to look at our other Thermocouple devices that will meet the dimensional requirements you need. If you need help finding a product that will work for you, let me know and I can open a service request for you and start looking into some options.

Hello!

Thank you for replying the message and I really appreciate. I wonder is there any extra accessory like Terminal Block Plug that we could connect to the NI 9212 mini TC, so that we could connect the Thermocouple wires instead changing to a plug-in Thermocouple?

Hi,

 

Unfortunately the only other option is the screw terminal. As I stated before, if you want to look into other options, feel free to contact us and someone can assist you.
