Issue Details

I have recently upgraded my LabVIEW Application Development Environment (ADE) from LabVIEW 8.5.1 to the latest version. After upgrading I am not able to use the NI cRIO Profibus Module or the module is not recognized in my LabVIEW Project. How to resolve this issue?

Solution

To use the NI cRIO Profibus Module (cRIO-PB-MS) with the latest versions of LabVIEW you should install or upgrade your existing Profibus driver to the latest NI cRIO PROFIBUS version. The driver installs Profibus Master and Slave support for LabVIEW and brings Configurator III to setup the Profibus Master module (PBMS). The latest NI cRIO PROFIBUS driver also adds support for LabVIEW Real-Time.

Additional Information

The NI PB cRIO 2.0.7 is the first version of the driver that bears the "Kunbus" branding, overwriting the previous "Comsoft" branding. For more information about this rebranding, see COMSOFT & KUNBUS Differences in PROFINET & PROFIBUS Hardware & Drivers.
