The cRIO-9004 is an embedded real-time controller that features an industrial 195 MHz Pentium-class processor for deterministic and reliable real-time applications. It contains 64 MB of DRAM memory and 512 MB of nonvolatile CompactFlash storage for file storage. The cRIO-9004 also includes a 10/100 Mb/s Ethernet port for programmatic communication over the network and built-in web (HTTP) and file (FTP) servers. Using the remote-panel web server, you can automatically publish the front-panel graphical user interface of your LabVIEW Real-Time application for multiclient remote monitoring or control. Featuring low-power consumption, the cRIO-9004 accepts 9 VDC to 35 VDC power supply inputs on power-up and 6 VDC to 35 VDC power supply inputs during operation.

Important Note: NI recommends the cRIO-9065 or cRIO-9068 controller over the cRIO-9004. These controllers offer four times the performance at a similar or lower price.
