Issue Details

The inhibit mode switch on my PXIe chassis is in the manual position. Is there a set number of seconds the power button on the chassis needs to be held to cause a power cycle? 


The amount of time you'd have to hold the power button is dependent on several things including what cards are in your chassis, what software you're using, etc.. 

Additional Information

Holding the power button for 10-15 seconds is more than enough time to ensure that the system generates a full power cycle.
