The NI 9206 C Series module for use with NI CompactDAQ and CompactRIO chassis features 16 differential analog inputs, 16-bit resolution, and a maximum sampling rate of 250 kS/s. Each NI 9206 channel has programmable input ranges of ±200 mV, ±1 V, ±5 V, and ±10 V.

The NI 9206 provides up to 600 VDC (400 VDC in Europe) channel-to-earth ground isolation, making the module ideal for accurately monitoring large fuel cell and battery stacks. Though each bank of measured cells can be up to 600 V from earth ground, each channel of the NI 9206 must remain within 10 V of the module COM. By referencing the module COM to the middle of NI 9206 bank, you can measure 16 consecutive cells.

The NI 9206 comes with the NI 9941 connector accessory, which includes a spring-terminal connector and backshell to provide strain relief for taking high-voltage measurements.

NOTE: The NI 9206 should not be connected to MAINs CAT II, III, or IV circuits. It is a UL Recognized Component that must be installed in a suitably UL-rated enclosure such as the NI 9917 or NI 9918 industrial enclosures. See the product manual for proper installation and restrictions for safe use of the NI 9206 and an explanation of measurement categories (CAT).
