Cable Compatibility for NI-7831R

Issue Details

The product page recommends the SHC68-68-RDIO cable, but I can see there are other variations like the SHC68-68-EPM/AI/AO that use the same connectors. Are these cables interchangeable?


These cables are physically identical to the eye, but the cable bundling and shielding are specific for each application. It is possible that an EPM cable could work for RDIO signals, but that would not be a supported application.

The recommendation is to get the signal-specific cable as recommended on the product page.
