National Instruments 8330 Series User Manual
Remove or open any doors or covers blocking access to the slot in
which you intend to install the PXI MXI 3.
Touch the metal part of the case to discharge any static electricity
that might be on your clothes or body.
Make sure the injector/ejector handle is in its downward position.
Align the PXI MXI-3 card with the card guides on the top and
bottom of the system controller slot.
Do not raise the injector/ejector handle as you insert the PXI MXI-3 card. It will
not insert properly unless the handle is in its downward position so that it does not interfere
with the injector rail on the mainframe, as shown in Figure 2-2.
Hold the handle as you slowly slide the module into the chassis
until the handle catches on the injector/ejector rail.
Raise the injector/ejector handle until the module firmly seats into
the backplane receptacle connectors. The front panel of the
PXI MXI-3 card should be even with the front panel of the chassis.
Tighten the bracket-retaining screws on the top and bottom of the
front panel to secure the PXI MXI-3 card to the chassis.
Replace or close any doors or covers to the chassis.
