SHOW NEWS: Complete hardware-in-the-loop test system from dSPACE

LinkedIn +

Automotive Testing Expo China 2016 exhibitor dSPACE is highlighting its new Scalexio LabBox, which offers a compact high-performance system for hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) tests.

The LabBox fits on any desk and can therefore be used for early function tests right at the developers’ workplace. The complete system consists of the LabBox and the Scalexio processing unit.

The LabBox provides slots for up to 18 I/O boards, which can be conveniently replaced at the front side of the box. If users need more I/O or computing power, they can simply 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, which was developed and optimized specifically to meet the requirements of real-time applications.

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.

Users can configure the boards conveniently in dSPACE ConfigurationDesk. This makes it possible to quickly modify the system according to changing project requirements and to decrease iteration times. The configurations created in ConfigurationDesk can be reused later with larger SCALEXIO HIL simulators.

Visit dSPACE at stand 4015 at Automotive Testing Expo China 2016, at the Shanghai World Expo Exhibition and Convention Center on September 27-29.
