How to display C Series modules in NI MAX

Go to solution



I have a newbie question about some new hardware setup.

As shown below, the host computer is connected to a cDAQ chassis (cDAQ-9189) and a cRIO controller (cRIO-9047).




The cRIO has 1x NI 9870 + 7x empty slots.

The cDAQ chassis has 1x NI 9860 + 6x NI 9224 + 1x NI 9212.

None of these modules is shown in NI MAX.






DAQmx is installed.




How can I make NI MAX detect all modules in network/remote systems?

Any tip would be appreciated.

For cDAQ, see Modules in Ethernet cDAQ Chassis Are Not Recognized in MAX

for cRIO, see NI 987x Module's COM Ports Are Missing From NI MAX. NI-9870 is a serial module. You need to install NI-VISA and NI-Serial driver on the cRIO controller.

I simply clicked 'Add Device' for the cDAQ chassis and NI MAX populated all modules in it.


For the cRIO, I installed NI-Serial on the host computer and then installed bunch of drivers on the RT target.


Now I see every module in NI MAX. Thank you!
