      SEA cRIO WLAN module

      The S.E.A. cRIO WLAN module offers not only wireless technology but also an  additional ethernet switch. With a cRIO WLAN module the complete Ethernet functionality of the CompactRIO controller can be used wireless - this includes programming, program execution, TCP/IP data transfer and much more.

      The build-in Ethernet switch allows the connection of two additional Ethernet devices to the CompactRIO Plattform.

      The SEA cRIO-WLAN module can now also be used with National Instruments  Ethernet CompactDAQ and National Instruments CompactRIO.


      cRIO WLAN Module extents the CompactRIOTM platform with wireless network functionality according to 802.11b/g with up to 54MBit/s. There are two free additional Ethernet ports available to connect other network devices. Module has 3 Ethernet connectors with 10/100MBit/s. The CompactRIO controller is connected via a bridge cable with the cRIO WLAN module, and so all standard TCP/IP functions of LabVIEW RT can be used to access the network. The data transmission is done with encryption standards AES/WPA/PSK with 64/128bit. The module needs no FPGA programming, and thus no FPGA space. Configuration Software for LabVIEW 8.x/9.x
