ES5300 – LABCAR system housing

The ETAS ES5300 LABCAR system housing is the compact hardware-in-the-loop system housing for the LABCAR HiL system for 16 PCIe (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express) cards. It can be expanded to accommodate a further 16 PCI cards. The ES5300 LABCAR system housing provides the option of using signal I/O and load modules in parallel in a single housing.

Dear visitor,

please note that ETAS GmbH will no longer offer HiL-systems in the future.

As the product on this site is part of these systems, it is no longer on sale as of 30 September 2021.

Products already ordered will still be delivered until 31 May 2022. Software service contracts (SSP) can still be renewed for one year until 31 May 2023 and will then run until 31 May 2024 at the latest.

Extended hardware support, extended hardware engineering services, special agreements on on-site service packages or extended software and hotline services can still be negotiated until June 30, 2022 for a period even beyond 2024 as part of individual agreements.

Compact Hardware-in-the-Loop system housing

The 16 PCIe-based slots for Express cards not only provide a PCIe interface but also feature an angle clock interface. Suitable for 4 U (rack height units), the slots each have a power supply of +3.3 V, +5 V, +12 V, and -12 V. Several controlled ventilators ensure adequate cooling. This makes it possible to integrate signal I/O and load modules with higher heat emissions (such as for injectors) into one housing.

The ES5300 LABCAR system housing contains the PC-based LABCAR-RTPC (Real-Time PC) simulation target, which allows users to carry out the parallel real-time simulation of several models/modules distributed over a multi-core CPU.

With a total height of 8 U, the ES5300 LABCAR system housing provides a 19-inch geometry for standalone housings or cabinet setups. It has a built-in wide-range voltage power supply. Temperature control can be monitored via the status display in the LABCAR-RTPC. The ES5300 LABCAR system housing can be combined with all 19-inch-based rack systems.


  • Ready-to-use, compact housing for Hardware-in the-Loop test systems, with integrated LABCAR-RTPC
  • Integrated design for complete system with all signal I/O boards and load modules
  • Modifiable for a range of applications – including the use of products from third party providers
  • Future-proof and standardized thanks to PCI Express technology
  • Can be used alongside all available ETAS HiL systems
  • Expandable to up to 32 slots

ES5300-B LABCAR System Housing

The ETAS ES5300.1-B LABCAR system housing has 16 card slots for system extension. The housing is 6 U (rack height units) in height and must be fixed to the ES5300.1-A. This yields a total height of 14 U.

LABCAR-RTPC and power supply are provided by the ES5300.1-A housing. The ES5300.1-B LABCAR system housing cannot be used as a standalone product.

The ES5300.1-B LABCAR system housing has the following electrical interfaces to the ETAS ES5300.1-A LABCAR system housing:

  • Power supply
  • PCIe (Peripheral Component Interconnect Express) interface
  • Angle cycle bus
