Issue Details

Can I use my NI-9860 CAN card in a MXI CompactRIO Chassis?


No, the 9860 module cannot be used in a MXI CompactRIO Chassis. This XNET platform card must be used in the Scan Engine which is not found in the MXI cRIO expansion chassis.

Additional Information

This card can be used in cDAQ and cRIO controllers where the Scan Engine can be accessed.
