INTERFACES

FOR HARDWARE IN THE LOOP

For the present and future owners of a hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) simulators from Opal-RT, Typhoon, RT Box or Speedgoat, imperix provides interface boards to feature either:

  • 16 optical inputs and 16 analog outputs
  • 16 optical outputs and 16 analog inputs

No change in the control code is necessary to switch from HIL-simulated converter to a real-world physical converter, as the cables can be just swapped from one system to another.

SIMULATOR INTERFACE
For HIL simulator
This interface interconnects the B-Box RCP to a HIL simulator. This way, any control implementation can be first tested – without any risk – on a simulated converter before it is later tested on real hardware. In this second step, all cables can be instantly swapped from the interface to the real converter.
POWER INTERFACE
For using power modules

This interface allows to control imperix power modules from a HIL simulator. It provides the necessary signal connections to easily wire the digital outputs of the OPAL-RT hardware to the command inputs of the power modules, and retrieve any useful measurement to its analog inputs.

Interface board for VHDCI I/O

The module is a break-out board for easy access to the high-speed digital I/Os of the B-Box RCP. It is compatible with all 4 sockets (A,B,C and D).
It offers:

  • 68-pin VHDCI shielded cable (1m)
  • 4 banks of 9 screw terminals
  • Easy access to GND
  • Brackets for DIN rail mounting

RJ45 INPUT ADAPTER

For the cases where the RJ45 connectors cannot be implemented, a simple adapter can be used to interface any sensors to the B-Box RCP. This adapter can be directly ordered at imperix, or downloaded free of charge here.

CABLES

your price

FIBEROPTIC CABLE

Used as isolated gate-drive interfaces, these fiberoptic cables can be used to connect the B-Box RCP control platform to your gate drivers. The standard length is 2m.

your price

SMA/BNC CABLE

These cables are ideal to connect the analog outputs of the B-Box RCP to any external monitoring device such as an oscilloscope. The standard length is 1m.

your price

RJ45 CABLE

RJ45 cables feature well shielded twisted pairs of conductors, which is ideal for the transfer of analog signals from sensors to the B-Box RCP. Standard length is 2m.
