BoomBox accessories

With the accessories imperix is providing, the BoomBox is easier to setup in your environment. All sensors, adapters, cables and side hardware are listed here.

Interface for Opal-RT simulators

Typhoon interface
For the happy present and future owners of a hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulators from Opal-RT, imperix provides a straighforward interface that is usable with any of the hardware units of the Canadian company. This interface provides up to 16 optical inputs and 16 analog outputs, so as to be compatible with the RJ45 and fibers of the BoomBox.

Hence, absolutely no change in the control code is necessary to switch from HIL-simulated converter to a real-world physical converter is necessary, as the cables can be just swapped from one system to another. Besides, the simultaneous operation of both systems is also possible.

This adapter can be directly ordered at imperix.

 

 

Analog input adapter

PCB modules
Application schematic
For the cases where the RJ45 connectors cannot be implemented, a simple adapter can be used to interface any sensors to the BoomBox. Its features are as follows:

  • Provides +15 V and -15 V (non-isolated) power supplies to the sensor/signal source (up to 100 mA on each line).
  • Analog input range : -10..+10 V (high impedance mode) or -100..+100 mA (low impedance mode).
  • Wire-to-board or board-to-board connector option.

This adapter can be directly ordered at imperix, or downloaded free of charge here (Gerber files, schematics and bill of materials).

Modulink 800V DIN-mountable voltage sensor

_MG_1818_2_small
The semi-industrial version of the ModuLink 800V isolated voltage sensor provides precise means for voltage sensing in power electronics applications. The device is compatible with 35mm DIN rails and is equiped with fast 6mm2 phoenix contacts.
The module can be self-powered by the BoomBox control platform and shares most of its features with the smaller 400V laboratory voltage sensor.

Modulink 50A DIN-mountable current sensor

_MG_1818_2_small
The semi-industrial version of the ModuLink 50A isolated current sensor provides precise means for current sensing in power electronics applications. The device is compatible with 35mm DIN rails and is equiped with fast 6mm2 Phoenix contacts.
The module is based on a LEM LAH50-P current sensor and can be self-powered by the BoomBox control platform.

Fiberoptic cables (HFBR-RNS001Z)

HFBR-RNS001Z
Used as isolated gate-drive interfaces, these manufactured fiberoptic cables are connecting the 16 PWM outputs of the BoomBox control platform to your gate drivers. These are available in 1 m or 2 m lengths.
