Software

  • Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX)

Driver

  • NI-DAQmx

Issue Details

I have several of the same PCI or PCIe DAQ card and would like to use them in the same computer. Is this feasible, or will I have trouble with this?

Solution

Yes, you can use identical DAQ cards in one computer. NI Measurement & Automation Explorer (NI-MAX) with automatically assign each card an unique name and you'll be able to address each card individually. 

Additional Information

Some motherboards only have PCI or PCIe slots, not both. Be sure to check which slots, and how many of each, the computer has before buying a PCI or PCIe data acquisition card.
