The SEA 9741 is a high performance cRIO module for communication in modern mobile networks of the 3rd. generation (3G). The module operates as a data modem, providing access to the internet via mobile networks. For the communication the majority of currently available standards and protocols like GPRS/EDGE (2G) or UMTS/HSPA (3G) can be used. The maximum gross data transmission rates are up to 5.76 Mbit/sec for upload and up to 14.4 Mbit/sec for download in 3G (HSPA+) networks.
The integrated high-sensitive-50-channel GPS receiver provides an accurate geo-position and precise time information with an update rate of up to 4 Hz. For timing, synchronisation or triggering, the module supplies an additional time pulse output signal (TTL) to the backplane. A built-in backup battery enables cold starts within few seconds for a fast GPS position determination (GPS fix). SEA 9741 provides a socket for connecting of external GPS receivers, if special requirements for the GPS functionality exist.”‹
The Mini-SIM card reader is located on the backside of the module with mechanical lock mechanism. Micro-SIM cards can be used with a corresponding adapter.
The module is directly connected by the Ethernet-bridge cable with the CompactRIO Real-Time Controller. The power supply of 7 to 30 VDC can be done with the enclosed power cable via the CompactRIO DC supply.


  • This module is made for worldwide operation except Japan. For Japan use SEA 9724.
  • This module can be used in all CompactRIO systems with FPGA backplane. The use in CompactDAQ systems with real-time controller (eg NI cDAQ-9132) or stand-alone is also possible if no GPS data is needed directly in the FPGA.
