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).

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.

Extended Warranties

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

For more information about your warranty options:


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.


NI training is the fastest, most certain route to productivity with NI tools and successful application development.

Repair Services

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.
