The modular dSPACE SCALEXIO system can be used for hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) and rapid control prototyping (RCP) applications. It is highly scalable, provides high-performance processor technology for demanding real-time requirements as well as comprehensive, precise, and fast I/O capabilities. SCALEXIO systems are configured in dSPACE ConfigurationDesk.

A small, variable, custom hardware-in-the-loop simulator would be ideal to quickly test a new function or controller. This is exactly what the new SCALEXIO LabBox from dSPACE offers.
Launched two years ago, the SCALEXIO hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) test systems from dSPACE have already proven their value in numerous customer projects. They are now being used across the globe, in countries such as China, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the UK and the USA.
In 2011, SCALEXIO was introduced as the new dSPACE hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) system. Tino Schulze, responsible for HIL test systems at dSPACE explains the past development and the plans for the future.
In this free webinar, dSPACE presents SYNECT and its functionalities for automating test execution, test system preparation as well as available mechanisms to separate the test evaluation from the test execution.

Function developers of mechatronic systems from a wide range of industries are now entering the SCALEXIO era. Frank Mertens, lead product manager for rapid prototyping systems at dSPACE, explains what this is all about.
The SCALEXIO AutoBox brings the power of SCALEXIO into the vehicle.
The desktop versions of the SCALEXIO LabBox are ideal for use on the developer’s desk.
The SCALEXIO off-the-shelf rack system is ideal for testing single ECUs.
The SCALEXIO off-the-shelf rack system is available with up to 12 height units.
The SCALEXIO customized rack systems are built and configured individually for each project.
The dSPACE SCALEXIO product line comprises highly flexible and modular systems in several form factors for hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) and rapid control prototyping (RCP) applications for various industries such as automotive, automation, aerospace, medical, transportation, or research. Its powerful real-time technology and comprehensive bus support are ideally suited for the most demanding applications of today and tomorrow, which include highly automated and autonomous driving, electromobility, and increasing network communication driven by modern E/E architectures.
Two product types are available for the SCALEXIO processing hardware – the computing core: the SCALEXIO Processing Unit and the DS6001 Processor Board. Both hardware components are regularly updated to enable real-world testing.

The SCALEXIO I/O hardware provides a wide range of external interfaces. The hardware can be divided into three groups.
All the SCALEXIO I/O hardware shares the following characteristics:
The SCALEXIO AutoBox brings the power of SCALEXIO into vehicles such as passenger cars, trucks, trains, and agricultural as well as construction machinery. Optimized for in-vehicle use, it is ideal for test drives when developing components such as electric powertrains and chassis control as well as functions for assisted, highly automated, and autonomous driving.SCALEXIO LabBox
As a laboratory system, the SCALEXIO LabBox is ideally suited for a wide range of applications, such as RCP, function testing, test bench control, and as a base system for customized HIL setups. The compact chassis fits on an office desk and offers space for up to 18 SCALEXIO I/O boards, which you can easily exchange in order to adapt the real-time system to various applications.SCALEXIO Rack System
For ECU tests, the SCALEXIO off-the shelf rack systems pro-vide sufficient space for MultiCompact I/O units, HighFlex boards, and SCALEXIO I/O boards. In contrast to a SCALEXIO laboratory system, the SCALEXIO off-the-shelf system for HIL testing comprises onboard fault insertion and current measurement with comprehensive software support.SCALEXIO Customized System
The customized SCALEXIO simulator is tailored to customer-specific requirements. It provides maximum flexibility and can be expanded easily. Its typical fields of application include complex tests of networked ECUs as well as tests that include electronic loads and complete virtual vehicles.Mechanical Test Benches
dSPACE offers highly dynamic test benches for testing complex mechatronic systems. To achieve a realistic behavior of the components to be tested, the test bench uses real parts, such as an electric motor or mechanical loads. For motor controllers and power electronics control units for non-rotating applications, dSPACE also offers turn-key projects using electronic load modules that provide high voltages and hundreds of kVA.Power Hardware-in-the-Loop Systems
For motor controllers and power electronics control units for non-rotating applications like DC/DC converters and chargers, dSPACE also offers turn-key projects using electronic load modules from dSPACE that provide high voltages and hundreds of kVA.
