SC-2345 connector block (The following does not apply to the SC-2345 with configurable connectors
or to the SC-2350.)
A metallized nylon knit EMI gasket is attached to the strain-relief bars of the SC-2345 connector block.
Using shielded cables to connect the signals allows you to ground the shielded signal cables. Stripping
the insulation away from the shield of the cables forms a chassis ground connection at the strain-relief
bar. To avoid adding noise to the signal, ground the cable shield only at one end. For complete signal
connection information, refer to the SCC-XX module user guide. For more information about using the
SC-2345, refer to the SC-2345/2350 Carrier User Manual.
SCC Module Installation Considerations
SCC modules are required for connecting to the analog inputs or analog outputs of the DAQ device. You
do not need to use SCC modules to connect to the CTR and P0.X signals of the DAQ device, which are
accessible from the SC-2345 carrier. Refer to the SC-2345/2350 Carrier User Manual for more
information.
Each SCC module has a lengthwise color stripe label on the top, as illustrated in Figure 10, that indicates
the module type and function classification of the module and displays a corresponding icon.

SC-2350 Carrier Considerations
The SC-2350 has integrated software support for Transducer Electronic Data Sheet (TEDS) sensors. For
more information about using TEDS with SCC modules, refer to the SC-2345/2350 Carrier User
Manual.
The SC-2350 carrier has 16 channels of analog input sockets, J1 to J8, in one row of eight sockets. You
can use any analog input SCC module in a single-stage analog input configuration. In addition, it
contains two analog output sockets, J17 and J18, for outputting up to two channels of data with the
appropriate SCC modules inserted.
The SC-2350 does not support dual-stage configuration or digital signals. You cannot use the SC-2350
carrier with the following modules:
•
SCC-DI01
•
SCC-DO01
•
SCC-RLY01
•
SCC-CTR01
Figure 15 shows the locations of SC-2350 carrier components.

SCC Quick Start Guide
Step 6. Installing the Modules
When properly oriented, SCC modules plug easily onto the connector block socket. Never force an
SCC module into the socket.
To install the SCC modules on the connector block sockets of the SC-2345/2350 carrier, complete the
following steps:
1.
Remove the cover screws on either side of the top cover with a Number 1 Phillips screwdriver.
Open or remove the top cover.
2.
If the carrier is equipped with a strain relief module, loosen the strain-relief screws with a
Number 2 Phillips screwdriver and slide the signal wires through the strain-relief opening.
If you are connecting multiple signals, you may need to remove the top strain-relief bar.
3.
Plug the SCC modules onto the appropriate connector block sockets. Refer to the Device-Specific
Information section of the SCC-XX module user guides for the socket requirements of the
SCC modules.
Analog Input SCC Modules
Analog input sockets are arranged in aligned pairs so that sockets J(X+1) and J(X+9) form a pair, for all
X 0 to 7. The SC-2345 routes analog input signals to the DAQ device channels AI (X) and AI (X+8).
For example, if you plug an SCC-A10 voltage attenuator module into socket J4, the signal on
one channel is routed to AI 3 and the signal on the other channel is routed to AI 11. Refer to the SCC
user guide to confirm signal names.
Right-click the device name in MAX to see the device pin assignments (pinouts) are in the NI-DAQmx
Device Terminals Help in the Measurement & Automation Explorer Help. Also pinouts for NI-DAQmx,
are accessible from Help»HelpTopics»NI-DAQmx»MAX Help for NI-DAQmx.
For specific descriptions of the pin assignments, refer to your device documentation at ni.com/
manuals or on the NI-DAQmx CD that contains the device documentation.
Single-Stage Analog Input Conditioning
For single-stage analog input conditioning, plug the SCC module into any socket J1 to J8 and connect
the I/O signals to it. In a single-stage analog input SCC configuration, you connect the external signal
to an SCC module that conditions the signal and passes it to the DAQ device.
Dual-Stage Analog Input Conditioning
For dual-stage analog input conditioning, plug the first-stage SCC module into any socket J(X+9) and
plug the second-stage SCC module into the corresponding paired socket, J(X+1). Connect the input
signals to the first-stage SCC module, and none to the second-stage SCC. The SC-2345 connects the
output signals of the first-stage SCC modules to the inputs of the second-stage SCC modules and routes
the outputs of the second-stage modules to DAQ device channels AI (X) and AI (X+8). An example of
dual-stage conditioning is a voltage attenuator SCC module followed by a lowpass filter SCC module.
Figure 16 shows how to install analog input modules on the SC-2345 carrier.
Sometimes, you can cascade two analog input SCC modules together on a single analog input channel
to form a dual-stage configuration. You can use sockets J9 to J16 as the first stage of a dual-stage analog
input configuration. Use sockets J1 to J8 for the second stage of a dual-stage analog input configuration.

Analog Output SCC Modules
You can plug analog output SCC modules into the SC-2345 using sockets J17 and J18. Each socket
connects to both analog output channels of the DAQ device although each is identified on the SC-2345
as being for either channel 0 or 1. These designations indicate the primary analog output channel each
socket uses. Analog output channel 0 is the primary channel for socket J17. Analog output channel 1 is
the primary channel for socket J18.
GPCTR SCC Modules
Plug the SCC-CTR01 general purpose counter timer module into socket J19 or J20 of the SC-2345.
