VISUALCONNX for Simulink Real-Time (xPC Target)
Introducing VISUALCONNX Developer as a tool for creating test interfaces for Simulink Real Time (formerly xPC Target), to build graphical interfaces for Ethernet-connected real-time Simulink models running on a widely supported range of PC hardware.
Simulink Real Time is a software product from The MathWorks that allows users to cross-compile Simulink models into real-time ‘C’ code using Simulink Coder.
The process is a very quick and efficient way to build real-time models for test, Rapid Control Prototyping and testing systems.
Drawing your user interface
Your graphical user interface (GUI) can be drawn in an intuitive environment, creating as many screens as you wish.
GUIs can be as basic or advanced as you like, depending on deployment required.
Simple to use
To link your GUI to your real-time target model, you simply connect to the target PC using its IP address and you will be presented with a tree of the signals and parameters, rather like in a file browser.
By simply dragging these signals or parameters onto your display controls you “connect” or link these items over an Ethernet connection, so that the model can be accessed in real-time.
Customising your GUI
You can add value limits, bitmaps, change fonts and colours or the sample rates of each data item using the properties available to you at design time.
Deploying your GUI
When you have completed your GUI you can use it immediately or, if desired, you can ‘package’ the whole GUI – including supporting graphics and required files – into an installable file that other users can use with the VISUALCONNX run-time.
Extending your GUI
To extend the features of your GUI you can even add scripting with easy-to-use script templates, adding features like data logging, screen navigation or almost anything you can think of, using the supplied class libraries.
