Why Can't I See My NI 9144 in MAX?
Hardware: CompactRIO>>Controllers>>cRIO-9074, CompactRIO>>Chassis (Backplanes)>>cRIO-9074
I have connected my NI 9144 8-slot EtherCAT Slave Chassis to my cRIO, why can't I see it in Measurement & Automation Explorer (MAX)?
You will not be able to see the NI 9144 in MAX like you see the Real-Time controller. The NI 9144 is a C-Series module expansion chassis and like C-Series modules, MAX is unable to determine what additional hardware is connected to the cRIO.
