Issue Details

Can I use the PXI-8532 DeviceNet interface in Python?

Solution

There is currently no support for the PXI-8532 in Python. As a workaround, you can use the NI-Industrial Communications for DeviceNet driver API in LabVIEW to create a LabVIEW DLL, then call the DLL in Python or other languages. For more information, refer to the Calling NI Hardware DLLs Using ctypes section in Python Resources for NI Hardware and Software.
