The NI cRIO-9014 embedded real-time controller features an industrial 400 MHz Freescale MPC5200 real-time processor for deterministic, reliable real-time applications. The cRIO-9014 contains 128 MB of DRAM memory and 2 GB of nonvolatile storage. The CompactRIO embedded controller is designed for extreme ruggedness, reliability, and low power consumption with dual 9 to 35 VDC supply inputs that deliver power to the CompactRIO chassis/modules and a -40 to 70 °C operating temperature range. The cRIO-9014 accepts 9 to 35 VDC power supply inputs on power-up and 6 to 35 VDC power supply inputs during operation, so it can function for long periods of time in remote applications using a battery or solar power.
With the 10/100 Mbits/s Ethernet port, you can conduct programmatic communication over the network and built-in Web (HTTP) and file (FTP) servers. For additional storage capability, the cRIO-9014 has a full-speed USB host port to which you can connect external USB-based storage media (flash drives and hard drives) for embedded logging applications requiring additional storage. Also, there is a fault-tolerant file system embedded in the cRIO-9014 that provides increased reliability for data-logging applications.
The cRIO-9014 runs the NI LabVIEW Real-Time Module on the VxWorks real-time operating system (RTOS) for extreme reliability and determinism. With the cRIO-9014 real-time controller, you can use the leading VxWorks RTOS technology to quickly design, prototype, and deploy a customizable COTS embedded system using LabVIEW graphical programming tools.
