Issue Details

I am considering purchasing a C Series Current Input Module, and noticed that the 9246 says it is designed for "direct ring lug connectivity to the three-phase high-current measurements of 1 A and 5 A current transformers (CTs)." However, my application is just a one-phase current measurement. Will this card still work for my use case?

Solution

The NI-9246 is a standard current input module. The designation for three-phase high-current measurements is simply saying that the specifications are high enough that, if this is your use case, the 9246 will be sufficient. This application is not required to use this card properly.
