  • NI-9208

Issue Details

I want to connect active and passive sensors on my 9208.
Is it possible ? 

Solution

Yes, you can connect passive and active sensors on the same module.
To connect your signal :
  • Passive sensor :  between Vsup and AIx.
  • Active sensors : between AIx and COM  (Thus, you do not use the Vsup pin and you do not power your sensor via the 9208 module)
