The National Instruments NI 9206 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) bank isolation from earth ground making the module ideal for accurately monitoring large fuel cell and battery stacks. While 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, 16 consecutive cells can be measured.
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 shall not be connected to MAINs CAT II, III, or IV circuits. The NI 9206 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 explanation of measurement categories (CAT).
Create a complete system with the NI 9206 and its accessories. However, the NI 9206 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.
