Hardware

  • PCIe-8233

Software

  • Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX)

Issue Details

Two of the four ports on my PCIe-8233 are not powering up or flashing their Ethernet lights when I connect my GigE camera. The other two are working properly. What is going on?

Solution

Try the following steps to fix the issue:
  • Ensure you have the ATX connector seated properly on your NI Frame Grabber as described on page 14 of the manual
  • Plug in your camera and then reboot your computer. This should cause the non-working ports to begin working after the computer is restarted. 
  • You can also connect your Frame Grabber to a Power over Ethernet switch and then connect your camera to that switch.
