Issue Details

Why am I not able to see the VISA resources of my remote system in MAX or LabVIEW?

Solution

If you cannot see the VISA resources on your cRIO or remote PXI system, you may not have configured your system to see your target. Configure this in Measurement & Automation Explorer by following these steps:
  • Open Measurement & Automation Explorer.
  • Go to Tools » NI-VISA: VISA Options » My system » General Settings » Remote 
  • Place a check next to your cRIO/romte PXI system.
  • Refresh MAX under View » Refresh or Press F5
  • Now you are able to see the VISA recource of your remote system under Remote Systems in MAX:
  • If you open an Real-Time project and insert a VISA Open.vi in the RT-Main.vi you can choose the Visa resource of your Remote Target in the drop-down-menu of the I/O node in LabVIEW:
