问题: 我有一块NI的运动控制卡,但是我不确定它使用ValueMotion, FlexMotion 或者 NI-Motion,我如何选择以及为什么?

解答:
NI发布的首款运动控制驱动是 ValueMotion. 该驱动技术所支持的板卡已经停产了. 起初 ValueMotion 用来安装一种程序,叫做 ‘pcRunner’ 该程序用来配置Motion控制卡. 在ValueMotion version 4.3 和后期版本中, Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX)含有了该功能.
当ValueMotion 产品停产后, National Instruments 发布了 FlexMotion, 它是我们新系列Motion 控制卡的驱动. 当时ValueMotion 和 FlexMotion 可以安装在同一个系统中,并且新系列和较早系列的板卡都能在该系统中使用.
当FlexMotion在版本5.2时,它被称为 NI-Motion. 直到 NI-Motion 版本 6(包括) ValueMotion 和 NI-Motion 都能并存于同一个系统, 但是在之后的版本,它就不再被支持了.
下表描述了哪些NI 运动控制卡被哪个驱动所支持,以及在哪些操作系统上有效.

○  Last supported in NI-Motion 6.1.x

-   Not Supported
The PCI-7334 NI-Motion 控制器满足了对低价运动控制卡的需求, 所以取代了ValueMotion产品的整条产线.下面链接中的知识库文章详细介绍了使用7334较 7314 或 7324的优势.
