The NI Smart Camera I/O Accessory has four replaceable fuses. Refer to Figure 1 for the fuse locations.

The power fuse (2 A), protects the NI Smart Camera from overcurrent through the +24 VDC

The other three fuses (200 mA), protect the smart camera from overcurrent through isolated
output 0, isolated output 1, or protect the computer from overcurrent through the ground on the
RS-232 connector.

Testing Fuses

You can check the continuity of the fuse with a handheld DMM. To do this, you must remove the side
panel, as described in steps 1 through 4 of the
