Issue Details

I have a NI 9144 EtherCat Expansion Chassis. As per the C Series Module Compatibility Chart, the NI 9853 module is not compatible with the scan mode of the EtherCat Expansion Chassis. Is my C Series module compatible with the FPGA mode of  the chassis?

Solution

Yes, although NI 9853 is not compatible with the scan mode of the EtherCat Expansion Chassis, you can use it in the FPGA mode. Using FPGA mode on the NI 9144/5 allows all modules compatible with the CompactRIO(FPGA Mode) to also be used in the NI 9144/5. To see the list of C Series Modules compatible with the CompactRIO, refer to the C Series Module Compatibility Chart
