Connecting to your HIL device

Guidelines on how to connect to a HIL device using either USB or Ethernet ports.

Note: Support for Ethernet connection to HIL devices is not available for discontinued HIL devices or for HIL 600/602 units.

Communication with the HIL device can be established either via USB or Ethernet. During the boot process, the HIL device checks if a USB device is connected and tries to establish communication. If no USB connection is established, the HIL unit will switch to Ethernet connection mode.

In the same manner, Typhoon HIL Control Center first detects if there are any HIL devices available over USB. If not, it scans for available devices on the network.

USB and Ethernet communications cannot be used simultaneously.
