Hardware

  • IC-3173
  • IC-3172
  • IC-3171

Driver

  • NI-TimeSync

Operating System

  • Windows Embedded Standard (WES)
  • NI Linux Real-Time

Issue Details

I have an IC-317x series Industrial Controller running Windows Embedded Standard 7 (WES7), as opposed to Linux Real-Time. Does my controller still support Time Sensitive Networks (TSN) communication and synchronization?

Solution

TSN is not supported on devices running a Windows OS, only on Linux Real-Time targets. 

Additional Information

TSN is only supported on Linux devices since time setting through the NI-TimeSync driver is run by Linux daemons, which are not available on Windows targets.
