The National Instruments PXI-6528 module is an industrial 48-channel, parallel, isolated digital I/O interface for PXI/CompactPCI systems. The NI PXI-6528 has 24 digital inputs and 24 digital switch outputs, and is completely jumperless. With the PXI-6528, you can sense digital levels up to ±60 VDC and switch currents of up to 150 mA. Because the PXI-6528 is isolated, you can protect your system from noise and spikes on external signals and break ground loops. Using programmable power-up states, you can configure the initial output states in software, to ensure glitch-free, safe operations when connected to industrial actuators (pumps/valves/motors/relays). By using Digital I/O watchdogs, you can enable the device to go to a configurable safe output state if a computer or application fault occurs, thus ensuring detection and safe recovery from fault conditions when connected to industrial actuators. With change detection, the digital I/O device notifies and triggers your software application when a digital change of state occurs (without polling). Programmable input filters eliminate glitches/spikes and provide debouncing for digital switches/relays through a programmable digital filter.

Since your device does not have direct signal connectivity, you need a connector block to act as an interface between your sensors/signals and your device. A connector block provides easy access to the inputs and outputs of your hardware.
You need a cable to transmit signals between your device and your signal connections on your connector block.
The chassis provides rugged, modular housing for the controller and modules and contains the high-performance PXI backplane, which includes the system's data, timing, and triggering buses.
The controller runs your application and interfaces with your PXI modules.
You need software to interface with your hardware and to collect, analyze, present, and store your measurements. This board is compatible with a variety of programming languages, including LabVIEW, C/C++, Visual Basic, and .NET. LabVIEW provides the easiest integration with all of your NI hardware and is recommended to maximize your hardware investment.
