WITH National Instruments' PXI-8140 RT Series controllers and LabVIEW Real-Time 6i, engineers can develop real-time PXI systems for a fraction of the cost of a typical PXI system.

The PXI-8145 RT and PXI-8146 RT controllers are up to 80 per cent less expensive than other real-time PXI controllers.

Engineers can develop custom real-time PXI systems with data acquisition, signal conditioning, dynamic signal acquisition, serial and CAN connectivity, and motion control with guaranteed deterministic performance. These controllers can run a single control loop at up to 6kHz.

Constructed for reliability, the PXI-8145 RT and PXI-8146 RT controllers reduce maintenance costs. With a 32MB non-volatile CompactFlash memory, the controllers can store data locally as well as withstand high levels of vibration.

The controllers' durable structure makes them ideal for embedded industrial applications located in harsh environments, such as machine condition monitoring or distributed machine control.

Designed specifically for embedded networked applications, these single-board computers take up less space because they are half the size of standard real-time controllers, consume less power for longer operation time, and feature built-in ethernet for networking.
