Issue Details

I would like to know what would happen in the even that my CompactRIO suddenly loses power.

Solution

National Instruments does not test the behavior of the CompactRIO in the event of a sudden loss of power.

The CompactRIO should shutdown extremely quickly due to lack of electricity, but we do not test the CompactRIO's behavior in the brief moments before this occurs.

If you are using the CompactRIO in an environment where losing power is a concern, National Instruments recommends using a battery backup.
