HARDWARE

A Comprehensive Range of Scalable Hardware

Backed by decades of expertise in the development of innovative hardware solutions, OPAL-RT’s unique approach integrates parallel, distributed computing with commercial-off-the-shelf technologies, offering an unmatched combination of performance, openness and affordability.


OPAL-RT’s production and operations teams are ISO9000 certified for the manufacturing of PC/FPGA-based real-time simulators, hardware-in-the-loop (HIL) testing and rapid control prototyping (RCP) equipment.



The New XG Series: Unmatched Performance

OPAL-RT is taking real-time simulation to another level with the new XG series. The new OPAL-RT operating system, OPAL-RT Linux 3, combined with Intel’s latest technologies and our unique toolboxes, allow engineers to benefit from an unmatched performance to develop, test, integrate and validate innovative products and solutions.



Performance

Up to 2.5x faster. The new XG series system is capable of simulating larger and more complex power system, power electronics or microgrid models using fewer cores.

Scalability

The XG series allows users to reduce time step for better accuracy. The number of cores on a single simulator has increased from 32 to 44.

Reliability

Benefit from maximum reliability and availability by using a server-grade motherboard and CPU.

Powered by Intel Processors

OPAL-RT’s XG series is based on Intel® processors. Benefit from Intel's decades of innovation that brings world-changing technologies to the market.

Simulator Platforms

OPAL-RT offers a wide range of simulator platforms to meet all current industry needs and forthcoming challenges. All simulators are based on a modular and flexible design, and are fully customizable and expandable for specific I/O requirements.

FPGA and I/O Expansion Box

Expand the amount of I/Os or communication networks of simulator platforms with OPAL-RT's wide selection of validated FPGA and I/O expansion boxes. Add multiple expansion boxes to increase simulator capabilities, while delivering the widest variety of test possibilities for different applications in various industries.

I/O Boards, Signal Conditioning, External Modules & Accessories

Additional I/O boards can be purchased individually and added to tailor system requirements and achieve the desired level of performance. Select components from the extensive list of I/O Boards, Signal Conditioning, External Modules & Accessories, all carefully preselected and configured by OPAL-RT’s team of engineering experts.

Easily Expand Your OPAL-RT Simulator

OPAL-RT's new Multi-System Expansion Link (MuSE) easily expands the I/O capability of the real-time simulators by enabling connection of multiple FPGA-based I/O expansion chassis.

  • Access remote I/O channels located up to 100 m away from your simulator over fiber optic high speed serial links (5Gbps)
  • Connect up to 4096 synchronized I/O Channels 
  • Use plug and play configuration to add up to 16 remote I/O chassis

Our Multi-System Expansion Link (MuSE) is available on most OPAL-RT platforms (OP4510 series, OP5707 and OP5607), and the link is fully integrated in RT-LAB.
