Instead of purchasing a SD Card from NI (786362-01, 16Gb, $455 CAD) or (786363-01, 32Gb, $680 CAD). Can I purchase a lower cost SD Card from a third party.
Does anyone have suggestion of cards I could purchase?
I'm just looking to save a few text files to the card, it would not take up a lot of memory.
The cards you mentioned are the ones that have been tested by National Instruments for the different CompactRIO models, according to the document: CompactRIO Industrial SD Card Accessories. Other cards might work, but NI can't be sure of that.
All the best!
