With AutoBox, dSPACE modular hardware can be used for in-vehicle applications. It provides extended robustness and can be directly powered by a car battery.
AutoBox is the ideal enclosure for using your modular dSPACE real-time system for in-vehicle control experiments such as test drives in the development of powertrains, ABS or chassis control. You can install AutoBox quite easily in your test car, for example, in the trunk or the passenger cabin.
AutoBox is a robust box for mounting processor boards and I/O boards. It provides space for dSPACE hardware (7 slots in the AutoBox, 14 slots in the Tandem-AutoBox). One of the strengths of AutoBox is that it can operate in various electrical systems such as 12 V, 24 V, and 48 V.

1) Maximum voltage between any input pins or any output pins and output ground must not exceed 100 V.
2) Cannot be reached in the standard AutoBox configuration (DS1005 or DS1007 with various I/O boards).
3) The sum of the output currents of the rails must not exceed the maximum output power. 4) The dSPACE processor and I/O boards have different maximum ambient temperatures. When they are installed together, the lowest maximum ambient temperature applies.
