Hardware-in-the-loop simulator

  • 03-Jan-2017 04:52 EST

With the new SCALEXIO LabBox, dSPACE (Wixom, MI) offers a compact high-performance system for hardware-in-the-loop tests. The LabBox fits on every desk and therefore can be used for early function tests right at the developers’ workplace, according to the company. Consisting of LabBox and the SCALEXIO processing unit, the system can be adjusted to meet different project requirements. The LabBox provides slots for up to 18 I/O boards, which can be replaced at the front side of the box. If users need more I/O or computing power, they can extend the system themselves by adding more LabBoxes or processing units. The LabBox is connected to the processing unit via the dSPACE-proprietary IOCNET network technology. The I/O boards of SCALEXIO LabBox cover the entire range of functions, from simple digital or analog I/O, to complex I/O functions for engine simulation and automotive bus systems.
