HIL Simulator

Our expertise will help your company win.

Typhoon HIL simulators are best-in-class hardware devices that can support all your needs for testing and validation of power electronic controllers. Our current product offerings provide you with a cost-effective and efficient way to start developing and testing controllers before hardware is even available, to start testing early and to test continuously, to optimize control algorithms, to streamline lifecycle maintenance of controller software, to enable continuous integration-continuous deployment (Ci/CD) and ensure the interoperability and safety of systems before deployment in real-world applications.

Paired with our software toolchain, Typhoon HIL Control Center (THCC), we provide a seamlessly integrated monolithic solution for HIL simulation. Forget about interoperability issues and set-up headaches with our virtually integrated software and hardware you to focus your attention on testing and not on setting up the test system. Connect with a Typhoon HIL representative for a complimentary discussion to learn more about how we can support your design, testing, and validation needs.
