C Series Module and CompactDAQ or CompactRIO Hardware Compatibility with LabVIEW


This page documents the compatibility of C Series modules with CompactDAQ  and CompactRIO Controllers and LabVIEW. It does not include compatibility for CompactRIO Single-Board Controllers.


For guidance on selecting cables or accessories for C Series modules, refer to the following documents:



For a list of what minimum software and driver versions are needed for the modules listed, or what Programming Modes your controller supports, please refer to Software Support for CompactRIO, CompactDAQ, Single-Board RIO, R Series, FlexRIO, and EtherCAT.

CompactDAQ & CompactRIO Controller Compatibility with C Series Modules

Please review the table below for C-Series module compatibility with CompactDAQ and CompactRIO controllers and chassis. If using a Legacy Chassis, for example an NI 9162, please review the section "C Series, Network DAQ, and USB DAQ" under "Device Support in NI-DAQmx" within the relevant NI-DAQmx Driver Readme.

1 The LabVIEW FPGA Module is recommended for sound and vibration measurement with CompactRIO systems. Modules designed for sound and vibration signals use an onboard, high-speed timing source. Accessing one of these modules using the Scan Mode Interface mode for CompactRIO hardware severely limits the frequency input range and may cause higher frequency signals to alias. 

The NI-9881 C Series CANopen Interface Module requires the LabVIEW FPGA Module to compile for a specific chassis, but the CANopen API is accessed from the real-time program on the host controller, this can be explained further by Software Support for CompactRIO, CompactDAQ, Single-Board RIO, R Series, and EtherCAT. For information about supported hardware and compatibility with NI-RIO, refer to the NI-Industrial Communications for CANopen readme.

3 The NI-9882 C Series DeviceNet Interface Module requires the LabVIEW FPGA Module to compile and does not support all controllers and chassis. For information about supported hardware and compatibility with NI-RIO, refer to the NI-Industrial Communications for DeviceNet readme.

4 This module is no longer supported in LabVIEW FPGA mode as of CompactRIO Device Drivers 17.6 and LabVIEW 2017 SP1. Use a previous version of CompactRIO Device Drivers to continue using these modules in LabVIEW FPGA mode.

5 The PROFIBUS Master/Slave module is only compatible with the Ethernet RIO Expansion Chassis in Slave mode.
