The NI 9201 is a C Series module for 8-channel analog input at a maximum aggregate rate of 500 kS/s. The NI 9201 represents a good combination of channel count and speed at a low price for an economical multifunction system.
As with the majority of C Series modules, the NI 9201 is protected from harmful voltage spikes of up to 2,300 Vrms. This means that no harmful voltage within the isolation rating can harm other modules in the system, the chassis, or any connected computer equipment. In addition to the absolute protection from the isolation, there is up to 100 V of overvoltage protection for errant signal connection or unexpected outputs to the individual channels.
There are two connector options for the NI 9201 – a 10-position screw terminal connector for direct connectivity and a 25-position D-Sub connector. The industry-standard 25-position D-Sub connector provides low-cost cabling to a wide variety of accessories available from NI or other vendors. A number of vendors also provide custom D-Sub cable fabrication services, and can provide cables with a pin-out that matches your exact application needs.
NI recommends the NI 9932 strain-relief connector accessory for the NI 9201. The NI 9934 (or other 25-pin D-Sub connector) is required for use with the NI 9201 with D-Sub module. The NI 9934 includes a screw-terminal connector with strain relief as well as a D-Sub solder cup backshell for creating custom cable assemblies.
Create a complete system with the NI 9201 and its accessories. However, the NI 9201 is compatible with multiple C Series Platforms, NI CompactDAQ and CompactRIO. Please review the comparison information below and select a platform to begin configuring your system.
Laboratory - 30 g shock and 0.3 grms operational vibration
Field Work - 50 g shock (Class I, Div 2 for Hazardous Locations)
The chassis provides rugged, modular housing for your controller (if using CompactRIO) and C Series modules. A high-performance backplane in the chassis contains the system's data, timing, and triggering buses.
The controller runs your application and interfaces with your C Series modules. If you are using the NI CompactDAQ platform, then a Personal Computer (PC) will act as the controller of your system. However, if the CompactRIO platform is used then an embedded real-time controller will be used instead.
You need software to interface with your hardware and to collect, analyze, present, and store your measurements. This device is compatible with a different programming languages depending on the platform used. If you are using the NI CompactDAQ platform then this device is compatible with LabVIEW, C/C++, Visual Basic, and .NET. However, if the CompactRIO platform is used then this device requires the LabVIEW FPGA Module (sold separately), the LabVIEW Real-Time Module (sold separately) and NI-RIO driver software (included with the hardware).

System Assurance Programs
Reduce your setup time and total cost of ownership, and get a system you can use out of the box with National Instruments system assurance programs. System assurance programs include:
Installation and integration test of all individual hardware
Courtesy installation of system driver sets and application development environments
Extended warranty and calibration coverage for up to five years
Custom documentation plus a custom restore and startup utility
This service is only available for PXI, NI CompactRIO, and NI Compact FieldPoint systems.
National Instruments designs and manufactures all products to minimize failures, however unexpected failures can still occur. Extended warranties provide a fixed economical price at the time of system purchase, covering any repair costs for up to three years. In addition, they offer the following benefits:
Significant cost savings compared to individual repair incidents
Fault location, diagnostics, and repair by NI any time the system product fails
All parts and labor costs covered as well as any adjustments needed to restore the hardware to manufacturing specifications
NI recognizes the need to maintain properly calibrated devices for high-accuracy measurements. NI provides manual calibration procedures, services to recalibrate your products, and automated calibration software to calibrate many NI measurement products.
Return your registered product under warranty at no additional labor and parts cost. NI offers fault location, diagnostics, and repair any time the system fails as well as any adjustments needed to restore the hardware to manufacturing specifications.
