Model-in-the-loop testing applications
Model-in-the-loop testing (MIL) and simulation is a technique used to abstract the behaviour of a system or sub-system in a way that this model can be used to test, simulate and verify that model.
Using Simulink for modelling
By using an industry standard toolchain such as Simulink for model definition you can test and refine that model within a desktop environment, allowing a complex system to be managed efficiently.
Once you have modelled your control system or environment (plant model), you can use this powerful offline simulation environment to test your controller strategies.
Once you are content the strategy is working well you can then take your model and build it into a pseudo-real-time model to run on the host, or auto-code the model into embedded C code that can be run on real time hardware, either as a Rapid Control Prototyping model for MICROGen, or by using a hardware-in-the-loop simulation of the model.
The Genix Target is the first of a new range offering an all-in-one solution for integrating PC chassis and signal conditioning cards within a single rack-based solution.
The MICROGen allows you to develop control models, test them, and make amendments quickly in an iterative process. This allows for efficient RCP or gateway implementation.
VISUALCONNX can help you to build powerful graphical interfaces and analysis tools quickly using drag-and-drop mechanics, and without the need for programming.
