Complete the following steps to create a new LabVIEW project configured with the cRIO-904x controller.
You can use LabVIEW to program in Real-Time (NI-DAQmx) or Real-Time Scan (IO Variables) modes. For applications using advanced functionality that require programming the FPGA, LabVIEW FPGA Module is required to deploy C Series modules in the LabVIEW FPGA program mode. Refer to the Adding the cRIO-904x to a LabVIEW FPGA Project for more information.
Refer to the Choosing Your Programming Mode topic to determine which programming modes are right for your application.
If your system is not listed, LabVIEW could not detect it on the network. Ensure that your system is properly configured with a valid IP address in Measurement & Automation Explorer. If your system is on a remote subnet, you can also select to manually enter the IP address. You can locate the system IP address in MAX in the System Settings for the cRIO-904x.
The LabVIEW project is created. All C Series modules and corresponding I/O appear under Real-Time Resources by default, which indicates that all modules are deployed in Real-Time (NI-DAQmx) mode.
