For Condition Monitoring Applications for Aerospace Boards, NI recommends NI PXIe
& CompactRIO Real-Time Systems
which provides high-performance, high channel modular instruments, Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) enabled synchronization. TSN technology or IEEE 802.1AS which is an update to the IEEE Ethernet provides Standard Time Synchronization & Deterministic Network Communication. NI offers a wide variety of cRIO, cDAQ & FiedDAQ products that are used to build high-quality distributed TSN Ethernet-based measurement systems
. However, the capability of using TSN technology is still evolving for NI Linux Real-Time PXIe controllers.
This article will guide through the configuration steps for synchronizing NI Linux Real-Time PXIe System as Master using PXI Synchronization Module 6683(H)
with multiple TSN enabled slave NI cRIOs connected using NI cRIO 9805 TSN Switch.
To use the time-based synchronization and TSN feature, install NI Sync 19.0
. The support for TSN or IEEE 802.1AS is added in NI-Sync 19.0 for Linux RT. The article assumes the reader is familiar with working on NI LabVIEW and PXIe Controllers with NI Linux RT OS.
