Direct operation and Ethernet control on PXIe-1062Q chassis with PXIe-8108 embedded controller

Go to solution

Hello all,


I am a fresher and just started using PXIe Instruments. I have one PXIe-8108 embedded controller in PXIe-1062Q chassis.

When I power on them, the screen shows everything is working successfully (as shown attached).

Then, how can I operate on this system itself directly (i.e. on its own, without GPIB or Ethernet connection to another PC)?

Is it possible to realize this? 


Besides, I tried to connect this device to a PC via Ethernet, but failed to search this device in NI MAX.

NI MAX reports VISA error (Hex 0xBFFF00A7): The remote machine does not exist or is not accepting any connections. If the NI-VISA server is installed and running on the remote machine, it may have an incompatible version or might be listening on a different port.
I can communicate with the device through ping command, does this mean the problem is the different VISA version? If so, how can I solve it?


Thank you very much for your help!

That PXIe-8101 is running Pharlap RTOS. You must develop your code on a Windows host PC and then deploy the program to it. See Getting Started with PXI and PXIe Real Time Targets Programming


There is a possibility that your PXIe controller is shipped with dual OS of Win7 and Pharlap. See Step 2 in Using a Utility USB Drive to Format my Real-Time Phar Lap ETS PXI Controller and try booting into Windows, then you can use it just like any Windows computer, without any host PC.
