i'm new to NI technology and having trouble to find my way in selecting a proper PCI card.
We need to replace an old PCI-MIO-16XE-10 card.
E, M, S, X series ?
NI PCI-6030E, 6036E, NI PCI-6013, 6040, PCI-6221, 6011E, PCI-6281, PCI-6221..... ?
Could someone help me out? Where can I find a good overview on this site?
I'm also looking to calibrate an analog output on the PCI-MIO-16XE-10 card via the "measurement & automation explorer". Is this possible and if yes, is there an online guidedoc available?
What's the expense for NI support engineer to help me out (worst case: on site in belgium) with replacing old board with new board?
thanks in advance and best regards,

thank You for Your answer.
Because I'm new in this, it's a lot of work to analyse NI PCI-6030E PCI card I/O's and more (we have more than one production test unit), and because NI has a lot of experience and knowledge, They should know which current PCI card is the best fit for the obsolete one.
thx & best regards,

ok, thank You for the proposal.
Because we have the older obsolete NI PCI cards in use, we will have to upgrade in the future.
We have also new NI PCI cards in use (from external partner).
I will surely take contact if necessary. It can become urgent, because it concerns prodcution test units.
Production starts again after 2 weeks vacation on 3 august, but I will probably be in NI online education from 5 august for 4 days.
In my current analysis, I take at least 2 possibilities to replace our NI PCI-6030E (PCI-MIO-16XE-10), namely:
6321 for 610 Euros
or 6232 for 1170 Euros
or 6010 for 380 Euros
I don't see NI PCI card 6221 on the NI DAQ site list, although our external partner uses this card (perhaps also become obsolete; still to investigate)
