Right-click a CompactRIO or Single-Board RIO chassis in the Project Explorer window and select Properties from the shortcut menu to display this dialog box.

Use this dialog box to configure a CompactRIO or Single-Board RIO chassis.

This dialog box includes the following components:

  • Name—Specifies the name of the chassis, which appears in the Project Explorer window. You can use this field to give the chassis a descriptive name.
  • Type—Specifies the type of chassis. You cannot change this value.
  • Programming Mode—You can specify the programming mode for the chassis here.
    • Scan Interface—Enables you to use C Series modules directly from LabVIEW Real-Time. Modules that you use in Scan Interface mode appear under the Real-Time Scan Resources item in the Project Explorer window.
    • LabVIEW FPGA Interface—Enables you to use C Series modules from LabVIEW FPGA VIs. Modules that you use in LabVIEW FPGA Interface mode appear directly under the FPGA Target in the Project Explorer window.
    Note Note  Some chassis do not support Scan Interface programming mode. However, in LabVIEW FPGA Interface mode, you can use the Scan Interface for individual modules even with some chassis that do not support Scan Interface programming mode. Refer to Software Support for CompactRIO, CompactDAQ, Single-Board RIO, R Series, and FlexRIO Devices for information about which controllers and chassis support use of the Scan Interface for individual modules.
    Note Note  Changing the programming mode will take effect the next time you deploy setting to the chassis. To deploy settings, right-click the chassis item in the Project Explorer window and select Deploy from the shortcut menu.
