Issue Details

I have a cRIO 9049, can I use TSN (Time Sensitive Networking) in this device?

Solution

Yes, you can use TSN in your cRIO 9049, but it’s important to take into account some considerations regarding the version of your software.

Please review the following Table:

*Only needed if you need to control a TSN cDAQ from a cRIO (sync).

For cRIO-904x series, the minimum required software is the Software stack 2018, Therefore as you are using cRIO 9049, you need to use at least LabVIEW 2018.
