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-2010 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. The cFP-2010 features extended DRAM memory for larger, more advanced applications. Engineers and scientists typically use 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 to unintelligent network interfaces such as NI FP-16xx and FP-1000. In addition, the cFP-2010 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.

System Assurance Programs
Reduce your setup time and total cost of ownership, and get a system you can use out of the box with National Instruments system assurance programs. System assurance programs include:
- Installation and integration test of all individual hardware
- Courtesy installation of system driver sets and application development environments
- Extended warranty and calibration coverage for up to five years
- Custom documentation plus a custom restore and startup utility
This service is only available for PXI, NI CompactRIO, and NI Compact FieldPoint systems.
National Instruments designs and manufactures all products to minimize failures, however unexpected failures can still occur. Extended warranties provide a fixed economical price at the time of system purchase, covering any repair costs for up to three years. In addition, they offer the following benefits:
- Significant cost savings compared to individual repair incidents
- Fault location, diagnostics, and repair by NI any time the system product fails
- All parts and labor costs covered as well as any adjustments needed to restore the hardware to manufacturing specifications
For more information about your warranty options:
NI recognizes the need to maintain properly calibrated devices for high-accuracy measurements. NI provides manual calibration procedures, services to recalibrate your products, and automated calibration software to calibrate many NI measurement products.
NI training is the fastest, most certain route to productivity with NI tools and successful application development.
Return your registered product under warranty at no additional labor and parts cost. NI offers fault location, diagnostics, and repair any time the system fails as well as any adjustments needed to restore the hardware to manufacturing specifications.
