NovaCarts Virtual software brings the test bench to the local control computer. Installing NovaCarts Virtual as an additional element during the installation of NovaCarts test control software gives the user a virtual machine that behaves like a NovaCarts real-time computer without any hardware connected.
This virtual test environment is particularly suitable for cost-effective testing of simulations and databases without using actual test benches. This enables test departments to perform e.g. initial testing of their control equipment software, and to prepare and verify theoretical models very early on in the development process without taking up testing time on a hardware-in-the-loop (HiL) simulator.
Furthermore, the virtual real-time computer can also be used to perform a lot of preliminary work on the content of the actual HiL tests. Such an ptimized preparation helps to use scarce HiL simulator resources as efficiently as possible.
- Optimum use of HiL test times: Preparing the content of HiL tests in the virtual test environment cuts the time needed on the actual HiL simulator
- Versatile use for testing simulation models and control equipment software
