I am searching to exange data between 2 chassis using NI PXIe8383mc setup on both chassis:
- 2 PXI chassis
- 2 controller NI Real Time NI PXIe8135 (OS pharlap)
- 2 NI PXI 8383mc
- 1 MXI wire for connecting both NI PXIe8383mc
I search for a while on different National Instrument ressources but I didnt find enough informations:
Does it needs To install additional driver on each chassis?
How do I programmaticaly (labVIEW) exchange data between the 2 chassis?
Is there any example available?
If you have any informations to share, it would be very helpfull.
I did some research on your configuration. First of all, in order to use your NI PXIe8383mc you have to install the NI-PXImc driver as it is mentionned on the NI page of the card.
Since you are using 2 PXI chassis, I suggest you to install it on both. Here is the link to donwload it:
>>PXIe-8383mc Drivers 1.0:
Now, concerning the example, I'm pretty sure there will be some help in the driver once it will be installed. I managed to find this white paper, maybe you didn't see it. There is no example but there is this small third part about the software driver:
"The NI-PXImc driver abstracts the low-level data transfer protocol and presents a simple and highly efficient API for building a solution based on PXImc." You also have a picture showing the different fonctionnal calls of the API.
>>Introduction to PXImc - Technology for High Performance Test, Measurement & Control Applications
I will let you know if I find anything else.
Have a nice day.
