Getting Started with NI-9512

Updated Oct 28, 2020



  • NI-9512
  • CompactRIO Controller

I've just acquired a NI-9512. What driver is required to program this device? There are some available examples?

Follow the bellow indications to getting started with NI-9512:

1. Check what is your LabVIEW version, refer to the document Which Version of LabVIEW I Am Using?
2.The driver required to use NI-9512 is the LabVIEW SoftMotion Module. That you can download from here.
3.Once you have installed LabVIEW SoftMotion Module, you can find an example project called Stepper Interface (9512).lvproj in C:\Program Files (x86)\National Instruments\LabVIEW 2017\examples\motion\UnboundAxis\Stepper Interface (9512).
4.To connect the NI 9512 to Drives and I/O you can read the document Operation Instructions and Specifications of NI 9512.
