Important Note: For new designs, National Instruments recommends the CompactRIO platform.

Using the NI LabVIEW Real-Time Module, you can develop powerful data logging, control, and measurement systems on your PC and easily embed your application on the NI cFP-2000 intelligent controller for reliable distributed or stand-alone deployment. You can embed all the intelligence, advanced control, and analysis capabilities of LabVIEW in a small modular package suitable for industrial environments. Engineers and scientists typically use NI cFP-20xx controllers in applications requiring industrial-grade reliability--such as analog process and discrete control systems--to run proportional integral derivative (PID) control loops, actuate valves and motors, take measurements, perform real-time analysis and simulation, log data, and communicate over serial, phone, and Ethernet. Once deployed, the controller can communicate peer to peer with other cFP-20xx or FP-20xx intelligent FieldPoint controllers, or with unintelligent network interfaces such as the NI FP-16xx and FP-1000. In addition, the cFP-2000 interface automatically publishes I/O measurements to a Windows computer running FieldPoint Explorer, LabVIEW, the LabVIEW Datalogging and Supervisory Control (DSC) Module, LabWindows™/CVI, Lookout, or your choice of OLE for process control (OPC) client application software. It also easily integrates with existing legacy or programmable logic controller (PLC) systems.
