SCALEXIO Rack System

Off-the-shelf HIL simulator with up to 12 height units

The SCALEXIO rack system is very flexible due to extensive I/O features. All hardware is software-configurable, making it easy to adapt the system to changing project requirements.  

Application Area

The SCALEXIO rack system is a 19'' off-the-shelf HIL simulator available in up to 12 height units. It supports the SCALEXIO I/O boards Multi­Compact and HighFlex, thus covering a broad range of test scenarios and domains.   

Key Benefits

The SCALEXIO rack version is very flexible due to extensive I/O features. All hardware is software-configurable, which makes it easy for you to adapt the system to changing project requirements. The rack version comes with integrated signal conditioning and a Failure Insertion Unit. The SCALEXIO Processing Unit acts as the computation node and is also integrated in the system.  

Multiprocessor Support

The SCALEXIO rack system comes with an integrated SCALEXIO Processing Unit. Due to its multiprocessor support, it can be interconnected with any SCALEXIO system to increase computational power, e.g., other SCALEXIO rack systems or SCALEXIO LabBox. 

Coupling Option

You can couple your SCALEXIO rack system with additional I/O subracks to extend the I/O capabilities. These subracks can, but do not have to, include their own processing hardware. For coupling the systems, an IOCNET connector is used.
