Typhoon HIL Toolboxes

List of the Toolbox Packages available in the Typhoon HIL software suite

Typhoon HIL Control Center includes a wide variety of pre-built component models and features to help you build your project quickly. A large amount of these component models are available for free directly through the Library Explorer in Schematic Editor.

There are also several commercial Toolboxes available that include advanced component models and features that enhance the capabilities of Typhoon HIL Control Center. Access to these models and features is tied to your software license. Toolboxes can either be added individually to your software license, or included as part of a sales package.

Table 1 shows which Toolboxes are available with which sales package. Follow the links in the table for each Toolbox to see which Schematic Editor Components are available within that Toolbox, if applicable. Contact our sales team if you are interested in any or all of these Toolboxes for your software license.

Note: Components may be unavailable for several reasons. Common reasons includes lack of support for a specific device or configuration or that the component is part of a Toolbox that is not available with your license. You can use the component tooltip in Library Explorer to find out why a certain component is not available (i.e. greyed out).
Figure 1. Reasons example

A component will become available once all of these bullets are satisfied.

Note: You can find out which Toolboxes your model is currently using by selecting the Model Information option in the Model dropdown menu in Schematic Editor. If no content is displayed, then all model content is available from the Basic toolbox package.
