cRIO-9074 software

I have cRIO-9074 with following modules:

- NI-9421(1) – 7 safety signals from inductive sensors according of position of DFWD units;

- NI-9421(2) – 5 safety signals from inductive sensors according of position of DFWD units and “start” signal;

- NI-9472(1) – 8 commands signals for motors and hydraulic valves;

- NI-9472(2) – 3 commands signals for motors and hydraulic valves, 1 signal “live’;

- NI-9411 – 1 input of DFS60 distance encoder, 1 input of PT1E lifting load encoder;

- NI-9205(1) – 12 analog signals of accelerometers;

- NI 9205(2) – analog signal from temperature sensor’s;

- NI-9263 – 1 precision output for electromagnetic valve.

And what software am I need to install on it to get data from thet modules with FPGA program?

Most applications you can simply use the Recommended Software Set (especially when just getting started)! If you get to the point that you need more customization/software, you can always install more software on the controller. 

Here's a good guide for installing the recommended software set to a cRIO:

If you're new to CompactRIO, I would highly recommended keep the CompactRIO Developer's Guide on hand

You can also get a feel for how to communicate with your modules using the built-in LabVIEW examples (Open LabVIEW, go to Help >> Find Examples. In the Example Finder that opens, navigate to Hardware Input and Output >> CompactRIO >> Module Specific IO. In that directory, you should find many examples for your modules.)

Hope this helps you get started!
