Off-the-shelf housing for SCALEXIO I/O boards

The SCALEXIO LabBox can be used for hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulation. It gives function developers and function testers their own desktop HIL testing system.  The SCALEXIO LabBox provides 19 slots –18 slots for SCALEXIO I/O boards and one for the IOCNET router – and works together with the SCALEXIO Processing Unit as the computation node. 

Application Area

SCALEXIO LabBox is a compact extension that offers space for up to 18 SCALEXIO I/O boards. With the boards, it covers all the essential I/O functions for automotive applications. The LabBox is available as a desktop version, a rack-mount version, and a covered rack-mount version with extended 19" brackets, letting you keep the complete wiring inside a 19" rack. The SCALEXIO Processing Unit acts as a computation node and is connected externally via an IOCNET cable through the DS6051 IOCNET Router.

Key Benefits

The mechanical concept of SCALEXIO LabBox with a front flap allows for an easy exchange of I/O boards. Users can simply adapt their SCALEXIO system to their requirements by using the ejection lever to remove boards and then add new ones.
If the need for more I/O arises, further LabBoxes can be connected to the SCALEXIO Processing Unit via an IOCNET cable.

DS6051 IOCNET Router

The DS6051 for SCALEXIO LabBox provides 1 IOCNET uplink port and 2 IOCNET downlink ports (excl. small form-factor pluggable (SFP) transceiver modules). It lets you couple a LabBox with a SCALEXIO Processing Unit and add additional LabBoxes as I/O extensions.
