Brute Force Computing

OPAL-RT’s primary goal is to provide users with a real-time digital simulation platform equipped with the best Intel processor technology available. Configurable for each customer, OPAL-RT’s real-time systems can be made to simulate, supervise and communicate with each other as master and slave systems.

Based on Intel® Xeon® E5 processor with up to 32-cores, the OP5031 simulator serves as an ideal master system for configurations requiring FPGA and I/O expansion units. The OP5031 also provides an ideal platform for real-time cybersecurity applications, in which only network protocols such as C37.118 and IEC61850 are required for hardware integration, as well as for users simply wishing to accelerate their offline simulations using OPAL-RT’s parallel processing technology.

Complete your System with OPAL-RT Simulators, Expansion Chassis and Third Party I/Os

The OP5031 includes six PCIexpress expansion slots, to implement high-speed interfacing with other OPAL-RT simulators and an FPGA I/O expansion chassis for larger distributed Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) simulations. The PCIexpress slots also support many third-party I/O cards, time synchronization and more, all while offering space to add additional Ethernet cards for applications requiring increased network bandwidth.
