Issue Details

I have a 68 pin to eight, 9 pin D-Sub connector cable for my PXI-8430/8. I want to use this cable for my PXI 8431/8.

Can I do this?

Solution

You can use the cable from a PXI-8430/8 on a PXI-8431/8. The PXI-8431/8 uses a different serial protocol than the PXI-8430/8 so the pins on each DB9 connector will be carrying different signals. Be sure to reference the Serial Quick Reference Guide to find out which signal will be on each output pin.
