Safety Information
The following paragraphs contain important safety information you must
follow when installing and operating the device.
Caution
Do not operate the device in a manner not specified in the documentation. Misuse of the device
may result in a hazard and may compromise the safety protection built into the device. If the
device is damaged, turn it off and do not use it until service-trained personnel can check its
safety. If necessary, return the device to National Instruments for repair.
Keep away from live circuits. Do not remove equipment covers or shields unless you are trained
to do so. If signal wires are connected to the device, hazardous voltages can exist even when the
equipment is turned off. To avoid a shock hazard, do not perform procedures involving cover or
shield removal unless you are qualified to do so. Disconnect all field power prior to removing
covers or shields.
Because of the danger of introducing additional hazards, do not install unauthorized parts or
modify the device. Use the device only with the chassis, modules, accessories, and cables

specified in the installation instructions. All covers and filler panels must be installed while
operating the device.
This is a Pollution Degree 2 device. Do not operate the device in an explosive atmosphere or
where flammable gases or fumes may be present. Operate the device only at or below the
pollution degree stated in the specifications. Pollution consists of any foreign matter—solid,
liquid, or gas—that may reduce dielectric strength or surface resistivity. The following is a
description of pollution degrees.
•
Pollution Degree 1—No pollution or only dry, nonconductive pollution occurs. The
pollution has no effect.
•
Pollution Degree 2—Normally only nonconductive pollution occurs. Occasionally,
nonconductive pollution becomes conductive because of condensation.
•
Pollution Degree 3—Conductive pollution or dry, nonconductive pollution occurs.
Nonconductive pollution becomes conductive because of condensation.
Clean the device and accessories by brushing off light dust with a soft, nonmetallic brush.
Remove other contaminants with a stiff, nonmetallic brush. The unit must be completely dry and
free from contaminants before returning it to service.
You must insulate signal connections for the maximum voltage for which the device is rated. Do
not exceed the maximum ratings for the device. Remove power from signal lines before
connection to or disconnection from the device.

Connecting to Differential I/O
The NI CVS-1457RT accepts differential (RS-422) line driver inputs. Each of the 2 differential
I/O can be configured as an output. Shielded cables are recommended for all applications.
Unshielded cables are more susceptible to noise and can corrupt signals. Figure 5 shows the
differential input/quadrature encoder input circuit. Figure 6 and Figure 7 show differential and
single-ended line driver connections. Figure 8shows how to connect a differential output.
