[1]NI 985x C Series CAN modules automatically sync to all NI CompactRIO modules on the backplane with a shared timebase. The NI 986x C Series CAN modules automatically sync to NI CompactRIO and NI CompactDAQ modules with a shared timebase from the backplane. External sync requires a digital module.

[2]NI-XNET devices are backward compatible with existing NI-CAN Channel and Frame API code and NI toolkits with the NI-XNET Compatibility Library. Learn more about the compatibility library.
