The 43-921-500 is a 5m long PCIe to PXIe Remote Control Interface Cable and is part of the 43-921 Remote Control Interface kit.

The 43-921 PCI Express-to-PXI Express expansion kit provides control of PXI Express modules installed in a PXI Express chassis using high bandwidth PCI Express technology. The extension kit can provide up to 4GB/s using PCIe Gen 2 x8 signalling. The 43-921 PCI Express-to-PXI Express expansion kit provides additional PXI instruments slots to the host computer by implementing a PCI Express-based control of PXI modules. The technology consists of a 53-921-001 host adapter installed in the host computer, a PCIe x8 cable, and a 43-921-00x, a remote controller with the 3U (Eurocard) expansion module. 53-921-001 comes in a PCI Express x8 footprint and equips with PCIe x8 cable connector.

43-921-001 with dual ports provides capability of multi-chassis control as a daisy-chain configuration. The upper port would be connected to a 53-921-001 which be installed in a host PC and the lower port would be connected to a 43-921-002 in subsequent chassis system slot.

With comprehensive hardware and software transparency, the expansion kit enables fast and convenient detection of any PXI cards installed in the system, requiring no additional drivers or software.
