Issue Details

Where can I find more information on the NI 9917 and NI 9918 Industrial Enclosures for CompactRIO and CompactDAQ such as dimensions and mounting instructions?


The NI 9917 and NI 9918 are wall mounting industrial enclosures that can be used to house an NI CompactRIO or NI CompactDAQ in situations where it needs to be protected from harsh, dirty, and wet environments. 

The enclosures do not contain any mounting holes or holes to pass wires into the enclosure, these items must be drilled after purchase. The NI 9917 and NI 9918 enclosures come with a panel for internal mounting. This panel is also void of mounting holes and must be custom drilled to match the NI CompactRIO or NI CompactDAQ.
