Facilitating tools for experimental research
Imperix offers a wide range of accessories for its control and power products
Because modular power electronic systems require large flexibility when building laboratory-scale systems, imperix offers various accessories that are directly plug-&-play with the B-Box RCP and power modules.
Our accessories support building rapidly and easily downscaled converter prototypes or implementing hardware-in-the-loop simulation systems.
Inductors and filters
Self-powered laboratory sensors
Self-powered from the digital controller
Our voltage and current sensors are designed to be very easy to use along with our digital controller, the B-Box RCP. Thanks to the use of RJ45 cables, one single cable is enough to provide power supplies to the sensors, as well as to retrieve their measurements.
Besides, as RJ45 cables provide well-shielded twisted signal pairs, the carried analog signals are guaranteed to suffer minimal interference.
Easily mountable on 35mm DIN rails
Imperix laboratory sensors are designed to be handy. Before all other aspects, they aim to be very quick to implement in all sorts of laboratory-scale power systems.
Sensors provide screw-less connection terminals and can be instantly inserted on standard 35mm DIN rails. This way, with only a few units, engineers can easily reuse the same sensors across different projects.
Imperix DIN-mountable voltage sensors are usable for both DC and AC measurements.
- Sensitivity 2.46mV/V
- Bandwith 100kHz
Imperix DIN-mountable current sensors are usable for both DC and AC measurements.
- Sensitivity 99mV/A
- Bandwith 200kHz

Breakout adapter boards
Although most basic experimental setups can be implemented using exclusively optical fibers and RJ45 cables (for gate signals and analog inputs respectively), some additional I/O signals may be needed.
On the B-Box RCP, the VHDCI breakout board can be used to easily access:
- General-purpose I/Os (GPI/GPO).
- Incremental decoder inputs (DEC).
- High-speed user I/Os (directly from/to the FPGA, USR).
- Additional PWM outputs (PWM).
The module provides easy access to the high-speed digital I/Os of the B-Box RCP. It is compatible with all 4 sockets (A,B,C and D).
RJ45 INPUT ADAPTER
When probing the different signals of the RJ45 cable is needed, this simple adapter can turn out handy.
