Issue Details

I'm using an NI-XNET module in a cRIO with DAQmx support. I can't use my module as a Real-Time Scan Resource. Is this expected behavior?

Solution

Yes, this is expected. The 904x cRIO's have three programming modes: Real-Time, Real-Time Scan, and FPGA. All C Series I/O modules can be used in any of the programming modes, but the NI-XNET modules can only be used as Real-Time Resources, because they do not utilize the onboard FPGA.
