Issue Details

I want to purchase a PXI or PXIe chassis and the power cord is listed as a required accessory in the shop. Is a power cable included with the chassis and if not, why do I need to purchase it separately?


National Instruments does not ship any power cables with PXI or PXIe chassis. You must add a power cable when you purchase a PXI or PXIe chassis.

This is due to the fact that power cables must comply with different power requirements and standards depending on the region the chassis will be used on. The power cables are not included to ensure that, at the moment of the purchase, the right power cable can be selected and added to the chassis kit.
