The NI cRIO-9073 integrated system combines a real-time processor and a reconfigurable field-programmable gate array (FPGA) within the same chassis for embedded machine control and monitoring applications. It integrates a 266 MHz industrial real-time processor with a 2M gate FPGA and has eight slots for NI C Series I/O modules. For rugged applications, it offers a -20 to 55 °C operating temperature range along with a single 19 to 30 VDC power supply input range. The cRIO-9073 features 64 MB of DRAM for embedded operation and 128 MB of nonvolatile memory for data logging. With the 10/100 Mb/s Ethernet port, you can conduct programmatic communication over the network and built-in Web (HTTP) and file (FTP) servers.

Important Note: National Instruments recommends the NI cRIO-9066 controller over the cRIO-9073. This controller offers four times the performance at a similar price.
