Issue Details

I'm looking at the specifications of the 9236 module and I would like to use an external power supply with it to supply more power to my sensors, does this module allow for external excitation.


It is not possible to use an external power supply through the NI-9236 module.

Additional Information

If the sensor being used complies with the 350 Ω resistance for which the NI-9236 was designed there should normally be no need for higher excitation voltages than the ones already provided by the module.
