Programming modes are set per slot on a chassis. There are three programming modes:
|Programming Mode||Resource Item||Use For|
|Real-Time||Real-Time Resources||Only available on cRIO-904x controllers|
Real Time Driver API support such as NI-DAQmx and NI-XNET support
|Real-Time Scan||Real-Time Scan Resources||IO Variables and Scan Engine support|
|LabVIEW FPGA||FPGA Target||IO Nodes on FPGA|
The default mode is only set after a fresh install and is determined by what you have installed on the controller.
Complete the following steps to configure a programming mode. Programming modes can also be configured by using the NI System Configuration API.
|Note Dynamic Mode Switching is only available on cRIO-904x controllers.|
You can change the programming mode of a cRIO-904x at any time regardless of deployed chassis slot operations. To execute a mode switch safely, the module will be put into a safe state. Modules have different behaviors when this occurs.
