Issue Details

I want to be able to access when my CompactRIO  modules were last calibrated programatically using system configuration or the Calibration Audit.vi. Is this possible? 

Solution

Calibration information is not a supported feature on cRIO modules. However, the new CompactRIO with DAQmx (currently 904x) is an exception. If the module is in Real-Time CPU (aka Real-Time (NI-DAQmx)), you can obtain the cal data that the module supports.

Additional Information

As a work around for cRIO modules what you can do is obtain the serial number using the cRIO System Configuration Information (CRI) Reference Library and then use the Instrument Certificate Generator to get the calibration date.
