How do I remove a PXI(e) card from the chassis?

Solution

Ensure you check the following when removing a PXI(e) card from a chassis:
  1. Unscrew the top retaining screw until it is lose in its socket
  2. Check for a screw on the bottom of the card underneath the black latch. Remove this screw if present. Note that these screws can be difficult to see but are critical to remove to avoid damage.
  3. Apply downward pressure on the black latch. This will move the PXI(e) outward from the slot. This latch may take a fair amount of force to actuate. 
  4. When the latch reaches the full-down position, remove the card by hand with constant outward force.

 

Additional Information

To replace a PXI(e) card, follow these same steps in reverse.
