Exchange data between 2 chassis using NI PXI 8383mc

Hello,

 

I am searching to exange data between 2 chassis using NI PXIe8383mc setup on both chassis:

Configuration:

- 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.

 

Thanks

Hello KaiserJJ,

 

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.

 

Regards.
