Replacing PXI Controller Hard Drives

Hardware: PXI/CompactPCI

I want to replace the hard drive in my PXI controller. What kind of hard drive do I need?

National Instruments PXI controllers use a standard 2.5 inch IDE or SATA hard drive. These types of hard drives are commonly used in notebook computers.

Note: National Instruments validates shipping hard drives at the rated environmental ranges for the PXI controller and replacing the hard drive or other components may affect the environmental response.

National Instruments recommends using 8.5 mm thick hard drives. If the hard drive is thicker than 9.5 mm, the hard drive will protrude into slot 2 of the PXI chassis.
