HIL Connect.

Directly interface your industrial controller to Typhoon HIL real-time emulator without any modifications to the controller hardware or software.



Why HIL Connect?

To completely test, verify, and certify your power electronics controller in hardware-in-the-loop configuration it is critical that the controller under test is not modified in any way. Controller has to “feel” that it is controlling the real converter hardware, meaning that all the current/voltage/optical I/O interfaces have to behave as the real power stage signals. All the interface signals have to be provided by HIL and impedances and signal levels have to be matched.

Typhoon HIL engineers refined their immense power electronics industry experience into Connect interface system to support all the true power electronics controller I/O interfaces. Finally, we can work with you to modify interface connectors so you can use the exact same cables for connecting real power stage to the controller to connect the controller to the HIL.
