Issue Details

I would like to use the NI-Industrial Communications for DNP3 Software for LabVIEW with my compactRIO controller and my NI-9870/9871 modules. Is this a supported functionality?     

Solution

Yes, the NI-9870 will work. The NI-Industrial Communications for DNP3 Software for LabVIEW software support communication over Ethernet (TCP and UDP) and serial (RS232 and RS485). Thus, because the NI-9870 is RS232, it can be used in scan interface mode with the DNP3 software.

The NI-9871 will not work because it only supports RS485/RS422.
