  • NI-DAQmx
  • NI-DAQmx 14.0

Issue Details

  • I am looking into purchasing a new cDAQ module for my 9162 single slots chassis. Are there any limitations on what cDAQ modules that I can use?


The NI 9162 is a legacy chassis that can only be used with specific cDAQ modules. Please refer to the C Series Module Compatibility Chart for a full listing of all cDAQ modules that are compatible with the 9162.

Additional Information

If you are interested in purchasing a new cDAQ module with the 9162 one thing to consider is the software compatibility with the 9162. The 9162 uses the DAQmx driver to operate and the newest version of DAQmx that can be used with the 9162 is DAQmx 14.0. The newest version of Windows supported by this driver is Windows 8 so using the 9162 on a Windows 10 machine is not supported due to driver compatibility.
