    MyRIO Panel Mount Kit


    The NI myRIO Panel Mount Kit helps you quickly mount NI myRIO to a wall or integrate it in a project design. Created specifically for NI myRIO, the metal mounting panel allows NI myRIO to snap into place and be held securely.

    • Easily mount NI myRIO to a wall or project
    • NI myRIO snaps into the metal mounting panel
    • For enclosed version of NI myRIO only

    NI myRIO Accessories Power Supply


    12 VDC, 1.5 A maximum, 18 W maximum

    Skin Surface Temperature Sensor for NI myDAQ (sold separately)

    The iWorx TMP-200 Skin Surface Temperature Sensor is a self-contained skin surface temperature transducer (thermistor) with a range of 25 degrees C to 45 degrees C at an accuracy of +/-0.1 degrees. The sensor is a rugged epoxy-sealed disc measuring 12 mm in diameter by 4 mm thick. The TMP-200 is equipped with a phono connector for use with the IX-myDAQ breakout board for the NI myDAQ data acquisition device.

    Stratom X-Hub Adapter for myRIO


    The Stratom X-HUB is a USB and Ethernet hub for myRIO. X-HUB is inserted into the top of myRIO, and is styled for a seamless look. It gives myRIO users access to an Ethernet port and two extra USB ports for a total of three USB ports. The power cable plugs directly into X-HUB to power both X-HUB and myRIO. The USB device cable is also inserted directly into X-HUB with the same functionality as plugging directly into myRIO. 


    • Seamlessly adds two extra USB ports and one Ethernet port to myRIO
    • The myRIO power cable plugs directly into X-HUB to power both X-HUB and myRIO
    • Quick and easy set up
    • Ideal for USB vision projects with myRIO

    Examples for X-HUB use cases:

    • Acquiring image data from a USB camera
    • Saving information to a USB storage device
    • Connecting to a network over Ethernet
    • Communicating with devices over Ethernet-based communication protocols
