  • NI-9411

Issue Details

I see that according to the pinout of the 9411 the pins 4 and 5 of this module can output a signal of 5 V. However, when I measure the output of these pins I always measure zero volts. Why is this happening? 

Solution

You need to connect a power supply to the screw-terminal connectors that are shown in the image below. 
As is specified in the datasheet, this power supply must be between 5 and 30 VDC
