  • NI-9402

Issue Details

The datasheet for the 9402 states that the maximum cable length that you can use with the module is 2 meters. Why is this the limit?

Solution

National Instrument only tests up to this measurement of cabling length and insures what all specifications will be met under this condition. Introducing longer cabling would cause additional I/O propagation delays and theĀ specification for this would not be met.
