TSN has evolved from the IEEE 802.11 Ethernet standard, and it can be used to synchronise distributed systems across networks, which eliminates the need for additional synchronisation cables.
A design challenge for industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) applications is the acquisition of accurate, reliable and synchronised data across distributed nodes.
The new CompactRIO Controllers feature:
- Sub-microsecond synchronisation with TSN over standard Ethernet for tightly synchronised, distributed measurements and control
- Shorter time to measurement than previous CompactRIO Controllers because of intuitive NI-DAQmx driver software
- Open and secure processing at the edge of the IIoT with the NI Linux Real-Time OS
