3. Technical Resources
CompactRIO Waveform Reference Library
Many reconfigurable I/O (RIO) applications acquire continuous blocks of data from multiple synchronized NI C Series modules. This tutorial presents CompactRIO data acquisition VIs that incorporate RIO optimizations and best practices, and offers several examples to jump-start your application development.
CompactRIO Vibration Data Logger Reference Design
This tutorial provides a CompactRIO reference design with a focus on embedded vibration monitoring and data logging. It acquires and streams to disk, extracts and logs key metrics, and can be configured to run headlessly for distributed monitoring.
Distributed Condition Monitoring Example for Wind Turbines
This example program, builds on the CompactRIO vibration data logger reference to illustrate a condition monitoring system for Wind Turbines and other distributed machine assets. Using the real-time controller and FPGA of the CompactRIO, data is monitored, acquired and stored on the CompactRIO controller and status updates are sent via UDP communication. Through a remote Windows Host, the data logger can be controlled and monitored, in addition to transferring saved data logs off of the CompactRIO controller using FTP communication.
