Owning Palette: Real-Time VIs

Requires: Real-Time Module. This topic might not match its corresponding palette in LabVIEW depending on your operating system, licensed product(s), and target.

Use the RT Utilities VIs to perform common tasks related to RT targets.

The VIs on this palette can return general LabVIEW error codes.

The VIs on this palette appear only in the RT context, and will not appear if an RT target is not added to the project.

Palette ObjectDescription
RT Calibrate TouchscreenOpens an interactive wizard that allows end users to calibrate touch panel monitors. This VI runs only on RT targets that support the embedded UI. Refer to the specific RT target hardware documentation to learn if the target supports an embedded UI.
RT Debug StringSends a string to an output port for display, or writes a string to the system log.
RT Get CPU LoadsMonitors the distribution of load on the CPUs in the system. For each CPU in the system, this VI returns the total load as a percentage of capacity. This VI also returns the percentage of CPU time devoted to each priority level, the percentage of idle CPU time, and the percentage of CPU time devoted to Timed Structures and interrupt service routines (ISRs).
RT Get TimestampInserts a 64-bit timestamp value from a high-precision timing source into a preallocated array at an index value specified by iteration. The timestamp value indicates the time when the RT Get Timestamp VI executes on the RT target.
RT LEDsControls the LEDs on all RT Series devices.
RT Read SwitchReads the switch state of DIP switches on a networked RT Series device.
RT Timestamp AnalysisAnalyzes the array of timestamps returned by the RT Get Timestamp VI.

NI System Configuration VIsUse the System Configuration VIs to gather information and perform tasks programmatically on both local and remote systems.
