Issue Details

I'm troubleshooting power issues with my PXI chassis and I would like to switch out the power supply with a functioning power supply from another chassis. 

Which chassis can I do this with without voiding my warranty?
 

Solution

Some chassis have removable power supplies. You can safely switch out the power supplies on these chassis without voiding the warranty. These chassis and the links to their power supply guides are listed below:

Additional Information

If your chassis is not listed above, you can check the user manual for your chassis and see if it has replacement procedures. Otherwise, the power supply is riveted into place and the warranty will be voided if the customer removes the power supply. 

If you are looking for the replacement part number you can find this by following these steps:
  1. Go to the product page, such as for PXIe-1082 Product page.
  2. Click View Product Details
  3. Click View Accessories.
  4. You can then scroll down to optional accessories, and you will see the the part number for replacement power supply and fan shuttle.
  5. For this example the Part number for the PXIe-1082 is 780322-01.
You can than add this to your cart by:
  1. Go to ni.com.
  2. Click on your cart.
  3. Go to add items to cart, enter in "780322-01", and click Add to Cart.
