Simulink® Real-Time™ Explorer is a graphical user interface for the Simulink Real-Time product. It runs on your development computer and provides a single point of contact for most interactions.
Note: Do not use Simulink external mode while Simulink Real-Time Explorer is running. Use only one interface or the other.
Through Simulink Real-Time Explorer, you can perform basic operations, such as:
Add and configure target computers for the Simulink Real-Time software, up to 64 target computers.
Create boot DVDs or CDs, removable drives, and network boot images for particular target computers.
Connect the target computers for your Simulink Real-Time system to the development computer.
Download a prebuilt real-time application, or DLM, to a target computer.
Start and stop the real-time application that has been downloaded to the target.
Add and remove host, target, or file scopes associated with the downloaded real-time application.
Add or remove signals associated with Simulink Real-Time scopes.
Start and stop scopes.
Adjust parameter values for the signals while the real-time application is running.
Export a Simulink Real-Time Explorer configuration as a separate executable.
To start Simulink Real-Time Explorer, type
the MATLAB® Command Window.
There are four major panes in Simulink Real-Time Explorer:
Targets pane — The top-left Targets pane lists the targets in your Simulink Real-Time hierarchy. Under each target are nodes representing the properties and (if accessible) the file system of the target.
Applications pane — The bottom left Applications pane lists the real-time applications running on the targets. Under each application are nodes representing the properties, signal and parameter groupings, and (if available) the model hierarchy of the application.
Scopes pane — The top right Scopes pane lists the scopes defined on the active real-time applications, whether predefined or dynamically created.
Output pane — The bottom center Output pane receives status messages from Simulink Real-Time Explorer.
The top center pane displays under separate tabs information associated with nodes selected in one of the other panes.
