SCALEXIO, the main dSPACE hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulator, is available from small to large systems while providing very high processing power. It is configured entirely by software, which makes adapting to changing requirements flexible and easy. SCALEXIO can be coupled with other dSPACE HIL systems, such as Simulator Full-Size and Simulator Mid-Size, offering an easy way to update existing HIL systems.
The SCALEXIO TWINsync Solution makes it possible to synchronously control various electric load machines from a dSPACE SCALEXIO hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulator. In the context of HIL test benches, this solution facilitates a precise mechanical simulation of various human-machine interfaces using rotary drives, spindle actuators, or highly dynamic linear motors.
The new SCALEXIO LabBox offers slots for up to 18 SCALEXIO I/O boards, making it the smallest dSPACE simulator to date. Together with the SCALEXIO Processing Unit as a computation node, it provides users with their own desktop HIL simulator.
For testing ECUs for electric motors, which require short simulation cycles, fast calculations and quick I/O access, SCALEXIO offers the DS2655 FPGA Base Board with a freely programmable FPGA and a high level of I/O.
Used in combination with the XSG Electric Components Library, the DS2655 provides the fast reaction times required for simulating electrical machines in closed-loop operation with a controller.
The FPGA computes parts of the simulation model for the electrical machine, e.g., from the XSG Electric Components Library.
You can also connect electronic load modules to the SCALEXIO system for different voltage ranges up to 800 V.
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.
dSPACE SCALEXIO is a very versatile hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulator that provides highly flexible channels, can be extended to any required size and is completely software-configurable. Its application range covers all test domains, including the test of electronic control units (ECU) of electric drives.
Thanks to the SCALEXIO multiprocessing feature, the simulator can be coupled with existing SCALEXIO-based or DS100x-processor-board-based systems, allowing users to expand their existing test setups to meet growing project needs.
The SCALEXIO system is standardized and can be reused in all SCALEXIO system variations.
The SCALEXIO I/O units are specifically designed for typical ECU signals and offer:
The SCALEXIO I/O hardware comprises three hardware types, each specially designed for typical application needs. MultiCompact, HighFlex and SCALEXIO I/O hardware can be combined and extended to produce whatever system configuration you want. They have the following in common:
