HIL Connect Interface System. SWISS
Seamlessly interface your power electronics control system with Typhoon HIL real-time emulator.
HIL Connect Interface System. Directly interface your production grade control system to Typhoon HIL real-time emulators without any modifications to your controls hardware.
Typhoon HIL Connect interface system enables direct and seamless interfacing of any power electronics controller system to the HIL family of real-time emulator products. It is specifically designed for power electronics industry, by power electronics specialists, to support all industry standard controller I/O interfaces, such as: current sensors, voltage sensors, fiber optic transceivers, contactors, and temperature sensors.
• C urrent output transducers provide up to 500 mA to emulate power stage’s current sensors: i.e. LEM sensors or current transformers.
Ease of interfacing with HIL Ultra-high fidelity real-time emulator enables comprehensive test and verification of control system in Hardware-in-the-Loop configuration where real controller is “in the loop” with the emulator. To conclusively test, verify, and finaly certify power electronics controller system in HIL configuration it is critical that controller DUT is not modified in any way. Our HIL Connect interface system is designed to support all the true power electronics controller I/O interfaces such that no modifications are needed on the controller. In addition, we offer customization services to modify HIL connect connectors such that our users can use the exact same cables, from controller to HIL Connect, as they use for connecting real power stage to the controller.
Features and Benefits
• V oltage output transducer provide +/-10V voltage output signals with 10 mA current capability. They can be upgraded to provide up to 650V to emulate certain types of voltage sensors. • O utput voltage transducers are also tailored to provide voltages that emulate temperature sensors i.e. thermistors, PTC etc. • F iber optic receivers enable direct interface for optical signals from your controller system; i.e. gate drive signals • F iber optic transmitters enable direct interface for optical signals to your controller system; i.e. IGBT desaturation signals. • D igital input voltage transducers that take from -15V to 24V are perfectly suited for contactor and relay control voltage levels. • D igital output voltage transducers that can configured for 3.3V / 5V /15V / 24V operation. • H IL connect is directly interfaced to HIL400/600/800 emulators via two flat cables and DIN41612 connectors.
