Maplesoft has announced MapleSim3, MapleSim Control Design Toolbox and MapleSim LabVIEW Connector.
Extended modelling platform in MapleSim ensures faster development time and expanded modelling scope.
MapleSim 3 has extended modelling capabilities with new component libraries for hydraulics and electrical machines, and refined solvers that handle greater model complexity. In addition, new user interface features can lead to faster development time and smoother workflow. MapleSim’s core symbolic technology produces highly optimized equation-based models.
The MapleSim Control Design Toolbox provides a set of control design tools that extend MapleSim’s plant modeling capabilities to support control design. This toolbox takes advantage of the symbolic approach for designing, analyzing, and testing control systems. By developing plants and controllers together in the MapleSim environment, the development process can be accelerated, and tool-switching cost is reduced. MapleSim also increases the reusability of controller designs through built-in technical documentation tools.
The MapleSim LabVIEW Connector toolbox integrates MapleSim’s modeling environment into the LabVIEW real-time platform from National Instruments. Engineers using LabVIEW can quickly develop and optimize complex engineering system models in the intuitive visual modeling environment of MapleSim. This new toolbox joins the MapleSim Simulink Connector (formerly known as the MapleSim Connectivity Toolbox), which provides enhanced connectivity with Simulink and Real-Time Workshop.
As part of its improved engineering solution offering, Maplesoft also announced an expansion of its Application Engineering Division with the intention of providing timely modeling and consultation assistance, and helping rapid deployment of new techniques in engineering projects. This group is global in scope and service, integrating services from Maplesoft’s solution partners.
