SCALEXIO LabBox

Modular real-time system

The SCALEXIO LabBox is a compact chassis for desktop or rack-mount use. It can integrate a SCALEXIO processor board or be connected to a SCALEXIO Processing Unit. Its two versions offer space for up to 7 or 18 SCALEXIO I/O boards.

Application Areas

SCALEXIO LabBox is a compact real-time system for function development and testing. Its compact footprint and low noise emission makes it ideal for use in the laboratory.

SCALEXIO LabBox has two chassis variants:

  • SCALEXIO LabBox 8-slot for up to 7 SCALEXIO I/O boards
  • SCALEXIO LabBox 19-slot where you can install up to 18 SCALEXIO I/O boards

Key Benefits

Its compact footprint and low noise emission make SCALEXIO LabBox a powerful real-time system for the desk. The mechanical concept for an easy setup and modifications allows easy adaptations of the system to changing project requirements. Due to different options for processing hardware, the computation power of LabBox-based systems can be scaled to match a wide range of applications. SCALEXIO LabBox is also available as rack-mount and covered rack-mount version.  

Options for Processing Hardware

For both chassis variants, you have two options regarding the processing hardware:

  • The dual-slot DS6001 Processor Board can be installed in the SCALEXIO LabBox, which results in a very compact setup.
  • Alternatively, SCALEXIO Processing Units can be connected externally using the DS6051 IOCNET Router.

Coupling Options with DS6051 IOCNET Router

The DS6051 IOCNET Router is used to connect SCALEXIO LabBox with an external processing hardware, e.g., a SCALEXIO Processing Unit or additional SCALEXIO systems as I/O extensions.
