LABCAR System Components

LABCAR system components are building blocks for open and scalable Hardware-in-the-Loop (HiL) test systems.
They leverage established LABCAR technology, i.e. hardware and software products, which are integrated in a modular and flexible architecture.

A basic HiL system configuration comprises two main LABCAR system components: LABCAR System Software Pack and PT-LABCAR Engine ECU I/O (i.e. a domain specific building block).

LABCAR System Software Pack

LABCAR System Software Pack bundles the software products LABCAR-OPERATOR, LABCAR-RTPC, LABCAR-MCS and LABCAR-RTC.


The building block PT-LABCAR Engine ECU I/O comprises boards for generation and measurement of engine ECU signals and a standardized wiring harness to the PT-LABCAR Connector and Breakout Box.
Alternatively, the domain specific building block can be replaced by customized components for applications other than engine ECU testing.

LABCAR System Add-Ons

In addition to these main building blocks, optional extensions are available for failure simulation (LABCAR System Fault Simulation) and for integration with INCA measurement and calibration tools (LABCAR System M/C).


ETAS DESK-LABCAR is a professional, scalable, and compact Hardware-in-the-Loop (HiL) system for testing in the early phases of the development.

Battery Cell Simulator BCS-LABCAR

ETAS Battery Cell Simulator BCS-LABCAR is part of the HiL testing system for battery management system BMS-LABCAR. BCS-LABCAR allows the test of up to 200 batteries and thus of all components of a battery management system (BMS).
