Time-triggered communication using time-triggered shared variables requires you to configure RT targets with two Ethernet devices.
Supported RT targets: NI PXI-8170 and later. Desktop PC with Intel Pentium 3 or later or Athlon processors.
Supported Ethernet devices for PXI RT targets: NI PXI-8212, 8232, 8211, 8231 Ethernet Modules.
Supported Ethernet devices for Desktop RT targets: Intel-based 82559, 82540 network interface cards, such as the NI PCI-8232.
Complete the following steps to configure an RT target for time-triggered communication:
|Note If you format the file system of the RT target after you configure a secondary Ethernet device, you lose all Ethernet settings when you boot the target into safe mode and the RT target might recognize the secondary Ethernet device as the primary connection. Remove the secondary Ethernet device from the RT target and reconfigure the target.|
