The NI 9213 is a high-density thermocouple module for NI C Series carriers designed for higher-channel-count systems. With this module, you can add thermocouples to mixed-signal test systems without taking up too many slots.

The NI 9213 is similar to the NI 9211 four-channel thermocouple module except it features four times the channel count and almost 100 times the sample rate. In high-speed mode each channel can sample at 75 S/s. When 12 or fewer channels are used, the max sample rate per channel can increase to 100 S/s.

You can use up to eight NI 9213 modules in an NI CompactDAQ chassis or CompactRIO chassis for 128 thermocouple measurements in a single chassis, or deploy a single module in any of the USB, Ethernet, or Wi-Fi carriers for C Series modules.

Each shipping kit contains:
-NI 9213 module with spring-terminal connectivity
-NI 9940 backshell for cabling and strain relief
-Spring-terminal tool for signal wire insertion
