NI Announces CompactRIO Controllers

NI has announced CompactRIO Controllers that include NI-DAQmx and Time Sensitive Networking (TSN). These controllers offer deterministic communication and synchronized measurements across standard Ethernet. Engineers can use TSN to synchronize distributed systems across networks.

As industries such as automotive, oil and gas, research and aerospace continue to implement the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), synchronized data across distributed nodes has become more challenging. As a result, companies must keep pace to ensure their systems are ready to meet these evolving requirements.

The CompactRIO Controllers feature:

  • Submicrosecond synchronization with TSN over standard Ethernet for synchronized, distributed measurements and control
  • Shorter time to measurement than previous CompactRIO Controllers because of NI-DAQmx driver software
  • Open and secure processing at the edge of the IIoT with the NI Linux Real-Time OS
  • Data analysis and control with an industrial-grade processor and onboard FPGA, programmable with LabVIEW FPGA
  • Operation in harsh environments with -40 °C to 70 °C operating temperature range, shock resistance up to 50 g and vibration resistance up to 5 g

With the addition of NI-DAQmx to the CompactRIO Controller family, engineers can access I/O directly from ready-to-use functions. This driver coupled with the openness of the NI Linux Real-Time OS means users can continue to leverage the ecosystem of IP available for Linux, like Security Enhanced Linux (SE-Linux).
