The National Instruments 9219 is a 4-channel universal C Series module designed for multipurpose testing in any NI CompactDAQ or CompactRIO chassis. With the NI 9219, you can measure several signals from sensors such as strain gages, RTDs, thermocouples, load cells, and other powered sensors. The channels are individually selectable, so you can perform a different measurement type on each of the four channels. Measurement ranges differ for each type of measurement and include up to ±60 V for voltage and ±25 mA for current. Please see the manual for detailed specifications and ranges.
Because of the driver design, the NI 9219 does not limit the overall speed of an NI CompactDAQ system when used with faster sampling modules.
With 250 Vrms of channel-to-channel isolation, the NI 9219 protects not only the surrounding modules, chassis, and connected computer system but also the other channels within the same module. In addition to increased safety, channel-to-channel isolation eliminates problems associated with ground loops.
The NI 9219 uses 6-position spring terminal connectors in each channel for direct signal connectivity. You can purchase additional connectors to reduce signal connection time for multiple test units. In addition to extra connectors, a strain relief kit is available to secure the signal wires.
Strain relief backshells for signal wire security and high-voltage protection (qty 4): NI 9972 Extra connectors for 6-position connector modules (qty 10): NI 9973
Create a complete system with the NI 9219 and its accessories. However, the NI 9219 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).
