I've never used it for an application that needed to run for a long time. Its handy when you want to do a simple test in the field.
How do you know that this PCMCIA to USB adapter will work with a DaqCard 6024E device? The PCMCIA to USB adapter have to be special? For choosing the correct one, what we have to know about the adapter? Thank you in advance.
There are no NI supported PCMCIA to USB adapters.
Have you considered using a USB DAQ device? The USB-6212 will give you similar functionality, plug and play convenience of USB and you will not need a PCMCIA slot on your computer.
I definitely see the value in using your existing hardware with newer computers. If you would like to see this in future NI products, you can file a product suggestion at the link below.
My 'old' laptop just died. I'am loosing the PCMCIA... but my rather expensive Daq Card NI6062E is still alive.
I can't afford to replace my laptop plus this card.
What is the best solution ?
- ExpressCard slot + adaptator
- usb slot + adaptator
(i just hate the company changing their products so that old ones are no longer compatible : expresscard/pcmcia)
We haven't tested any specific adapters although we do know of other users who have been able to get this to work. Essentially we can't guarantee that any third party adapters meet the full requirements of the PCMCIA bus specification.
