Hello,I have received a Comsoft DF Profi II Boad from NI. I would like to set up communication between Comsoft DF Profi II Boad and PLC. PLC works as Master and Comsoft DF Profi II Boad with PXI-1042Q works as Slave.The embeded controller is PXI-8108 that runs a Real-Time OS. I have installed the driver and hardware following the NI document. But I have failled. The problom is that:
1. The Comsoft DF Profi II Boad has not been driverd beacouse no LED is ON;
2. when I have changed the 1042Q,and have used a PXIe chassis,then the Comsoft DF Profi II Boad works well.
3. when the controller PXI8108 runs the windows OS, the Comsoft DF Profi II Boad with PXI1042Q works well.
4. But I just want it to works under RT Operation Systerm and use the PXI1042Q(with 8 chassises).
5. My Labview vision is 8.6.1 and VISA is 4.5.
Now I am not sure whether the PXI-1042Q Chassis that runs a Real-Time OS can driver the Comsoft DF Profi II Boad. How can I do ?
Anyone else can help me ? thank you .

Have you installed the Comsoft Profibus traget driver to your RT controller?
Sounds like a dumb question, but is the most overlooked detail from my experience.
