CompactRIO Controller

1.60 GHz Quad-Core CPU, 4 GB DRAM, 4 GB Storage, -40 °C to 70 °C, Kintex-7 70T FPGA, 4-Slot CompactRIO Controller—The cRIO-9042 is a rugged, high-performance, customizable embedded controller that offers Intel Atom quad-core processing, NI-DAQmx support, and an SD card slot for data-logging, embedded monitoring, and control. It includes a Kintex-7 70T FPGA with LabVIEW FPGA Module support for advanced control and coprocessing. The controller provides precise, synchronized timing and deterministic communications using Time Sensitive Networking (TSN), which is ideal for highly distributed measurements. This controller offers several connectivity ports, including Gigabit Ethernet, USB 3.1, USB 2.0, RS232, and RS485 ports. You can use the USB 3.1 ports to add a local human machine interface and program, deploy, and debug software, which simplifies application development.
