Issue Details

NI MAX warns me that my chassis is not supported, but my PXI system is still working properly.

Solution

Only PXI Express chassis that support 82 W slot cooling capacity, such as the PXIe-1092 or PXIe-1095, support the PXIe-8881. Operation and performance are not guaranteed in other chassis across the operating conditions outlined in the PXIe-8881 Specification, so NI warns the customers that they are using the controller in an unsupported chassis.
