Issue Details

I want to use digital C Series modules in my NI 9144 EtherCAT expansion chassis configured in a Specialty Digital Configuration. Is this possible?
 

Solution

This is not possible at this time. As of NI-CompactRIO 15.0, Specialty Digital Configuration mode is not supported by the NI 9144 EtherCAT chassis. More information can be found about Specialty Digital Configurations in the related links section.  You may, however, use these modules and implement the logic in FPGA.
