The NI 9792 controller, which is programmable with the NI LabVIEW Real-Time Module, can communicate with NI wireless sensor network (WSN) devices as well as other hardware through a variety of open communication standards. This high-performance controller features a 533 MHz processor and a 2.4 GHz IEEE 802.15.4 radio to communicate with 8 WSN end nodes (star topology) or up to 36 distributed WSN nodes (in a mesh topology). The NI 9792 also features dual Ethernet ports to provide flexible connectivity to other devices in your measurement system, such as enterprise-level networks or wired I/O systems. With this flexibility, you can create a complete wired and wireless measurement solution that meets your unique application needs.

You can target and program this controller with LabVIEW Real-Time to collect, analyze, and present data from your wireless measurements. With 2 GB of onboard storage, the NI 9792 is well-suited for embedded data-logging applications for which you need to aggregate data from distributed wireless measurement nodes and/or wired I/O systems. The NI 9792 also features a Hi-Speed USB host port to which you can connect external USB-based storage media for embedded logging applications requiring more data storage. In addition, the NI 9792 incorporates a fault-tolerant file system that provides increased reliability for data logging.

The NI 9792 also features integrated Web (HTTP) and file (FTP) servers so that you can host measurement data for remote access anywhere with an Internet connection. With the 10/100 Mbits/s and 10/100/1000 Mbits/s Ethernet and serial ports, you can communicate via TCP/IP, UDP, Modbus/TCP, and serial protocols.

You can connect redundant 9 to 35 VDC external power supplies to the NI 9792 programmable gateway, which also offers -40 to 70 °C operating temperatures and a 50 g shock rating.

The NI 9792 requires LabVIEW and the LabVIEW Real-Time Module. The controller is shipped with the antenna, four-position power supply connector, and NI-WSN software for network configuration and data extraction with LabVIEW (power supply is not included).
