CompactRIO Controllers add ease of use with the NI-DAQmx driver and improve synchronization with TSN . These features complement existing capabilities like deterministic operation with NI Linux Real-Time, abstracted access to the FPGA with LabVIEW FPGA, and the flexibility to connect to any sensor on any bus.
NI-DAQmx, the leading DAQ driver, has been used for over 15 years with NI DAQ hardware. The graphical nature and the multitude of ready-to-use functions makes this driver great for waveform acquisition and control, up to 5 kHz.
Overcome the traditional challenges of programming heterogeneous architectures with the combination of NI Linux Real-Time and LabVIEW FPGA, which allows you to develop your system faster by programming both the real-time processor and the user-programmable FPGA with a single, intuitive software toolchain.
Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) is the next evolution of the IEEE 802.1 Ethernet standard that delivers distributed time synchronization and deterministic transfer of time sensitive data. With TSN, there’s no need to align data after acquisition, because all systems share a common notion of time.
C Series modules deliver high-accuracy I/O with measurement-specific signal conditioning that connect to any sensor or device on any bus. With these high-accuracy analog designs, integrated signal conditioning, and precision timing, you can make more effective decisions.
Boost security and reliability with native support for Security-Enhanced Linux, which delivers mandatory access control through custom policy creation. Access thousands of open-source applications, IP, and examples and collaborate with an active community of users and developers.
NI real-time products work together seamlessly to run applications reliably and deterministically with precise timing. NI real-time systems offer a variety of hardware and software options, so you can choose the right options for your project.
CompactRIO Controllers include EtherCAT technology options, which is an open, real-time Ethernet protocol that is well suited for high-speed I/O and control applications that need determinism and synchronization.
Using CompactRIO hardware with LabVIEW FPGA programming, NI Partner Asoindel developed a rapid-response, hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) system for several complex models. They achieved simulation loop speeds under 20 µs with a highly deterministic calculation speed and high-speed simulated hardware response.
