Opal-RT Technologies Inc. recently rolled out their latest version of TestDrive(TM) OP6000 Engine ECU Testing System. TestDrive OP6000 is a powerful system for improving Electronic Control Unit (ECU) quality throughout the entire production process with real-time open- or closed-loop simulation. It enables test and control engineers to exercise ECU design in a complete virtual environment, including extreme conditions, by replicating all the loading and sensory feedback of an actual vehicle under realistic conditions.
TestDrive OP6000 is based on RT-LAB real-time technology. RT-LAB’s flexibility and scalability allow it to be used in virtually any simulation or control system application, and to add computing-power where and when it is needed.
TestDrive OP6000 is specifically designed to meet all ECU vendors’ stringent specifications in terms of performance, flexibility, scalability, test automation capability and unit cost, and has already been deployed in multiple ECU test plants worldwide. In addition, a number of major OEMs and tier-one suppliers are currently evaluating the TestDrive OP6000 system.
TestDrive OP6000 easily accommodates up to 10 I/O modules and hundreds of IO channels that can be reconfigured directly from the software interface to test even the most complex powertrain ECUs. TestDrive OP6000 can also be easily and economically configured to test ECU applications with smaller I/O counts. It is user friendly with software managed voltage protection that provides instant updates on I/O status without interrupting workflow.
The graphical TestDrive interface facilitates the design and test of ECU software or production-ready ECUs in a complete virtual environment. The system easily handles automated regression tests to fully validate ECU software reliability. In addition to its performance as a standalone test lab, multiple TestDrive OP6000 systems can be networked together, enabling extreme, real-time testing of multiple vehicle systems.
