Issue Details

I would like to use the NI 9234, but I do not have an IEPE sensor.  Is it possible to use a generic BNC cable to take measurements using this device, or is an IEPE sensor required?

Solution

While the NI 9234 is specifically designed for high-resolution applications using IEPE sensors, an IEPE sensor is not required to use this device as an analog input module.  You can use a generic non-IEPE BNC cable if you would like.
