/ 227 Engine & Dyno Controller EMCON Stand-Alone Advanced The AVL EMCON 400 Stand-Alone Advanced is a complete digital testbed control and monitoring system for a combustion engine and dynamometer on an engine testbed. Like the BME 400, it has an ergonomically designed operating panel and the same control I/O. AVL EMCON 400 Stand-Alone Advanced includes a runtime environment to execute MATLAB®/Simulink®-based real-time applications created with AVL ARTE.Lab™ on the same controller HW. Real-time applications can be started individually or automatically with AVL EMCON 400 Stand-Alone. An AVL EMCON Stand-Alone Advanced web client enables the parameterization of the controller by using the standard browser on the office PC or directly on the controller workstation. The Web Client provides a number of intuitive and user-friendly GUIs to edit some of the most frequently used AVL EMCON database arrays. BENEFITS AT A GLANCE • Features as of Stand-Alone BME 400 • Additionally full support of combustion engine control • Fast controller parameterization due to user-friendly GUI • Online graph for support of controller tuning • Execution of customer-specific MATLAB®/Simulink®-based real-time models on the same AVL EMCON Stand-Alone Advanced HW • Automatic real-time model integration on the AVL EMCON Stand-Alone Advanced HW • Upgrade of control system to be integrated in AVL PUMA Open™ TECHNICAL FEATURES The control software operates on a powerful INTEL™ har dware with an INtime® real-time operating system. It uses t he same control I/O as the BME 400 and the AVL automation system AVL PUMA Open™. As the same hardware is used, a direct upgrade path to AVL PUMA Open™ is available. APPLICATION Like the BME 400, the AVL EMCON Stand-Alone Advanced can be connected to all types of testbed automation systems by means of different hybrid or digital interfaces. At the same time, parameterization of the controller is possible by using the standard web browser on the office PC connected via Ethernet. The MATLAB®/ Simulink®-based real-time applications can automatically be integrated while model start/stop and online parameterization is managed via a common application desktop. Access to the parameters of the controller I/O, dyno and engine via the standard web browser. An online graph supports controller tuning.
