Introduction to Visual ModelQ

Visual ModelQ has what you're looking for in a modeling environment. Easy to use. Easy to understand. Plenty of features. Whether you are learning how to tune a control system or studying the effects of component variation, Visual ModelQ is the tool you need. And it's the most cost effective modeling environment in its class.

1. Graphic model entry
Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: C:\Users\George.Ellis\Documents\WebSite\QxDesign2012\Visual ModelQ\Feature_GraphicalEntry.jpg

Just drop blocks and wire them together. Configure blocks with a few clicks. Entering Visual ModelQ models is so easy you'll be up and simulating in no time.

2. Continuously running models

Visual ModelQ models keep going, just like real systems. Tweak a gain; watch what happens. Immediately. Other environments lumber along in batches...start...wait ...change a parameter...wait. Now you can skip the waiting.


3. Over 150 preprogrammed blocks
Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: C:\Users\George.Ellis\Documents\WebSite\QxDesign2012\Visual ModelQ\Feature_100Blocks.jpg

Visual ModelQ provides more than 150 preprogrammed blocks: control laws, filters, waveforms, math, digital functions, comparators, analog switches, Boolean logic, instruments...the list goes on.

4. Live Scopes

Drop Live Scopes plot right on your model diagram. They have lots of features: single shot, AC triggering and coupling, auto scaling. Live Scopes can be resized by dragging the bottom right corner.

5. Hot connections

Modelers like to iterate. Try this...watch that. Sometimes you get surprised. That's what hot connections are for. Live Scopes can hot connect to any wire...any block...any time. The simulation doesn't miss a step.

6. Live Constants
Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: C:\Users\George.Ellis\Documents\WebSite\QxDesign2012\Visual ModelQ\Feature_LiveConstant.jpg

Change parameters while the model keeps running with Live Constants. Just double click and adjust. Live Constants have six different adjustment so you can jump a wide span or just tweak a gain in.

7. Fast execution
Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: C:\Users\George.Ellis\Documents\WebSite\QxDesign2012\Visual ModelQ\Feature_Fast.jpg

Visual ModelQ compiles and runs fast. The compilation process is so fast, it's usually undetectable. And models are fully net listed to speed execution.

8. Flexible modeling for digital systems
Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: C:\Users\George.Ellis\Documents\WebSite\QxDesign2012\Visual ModelQ\Feature_Digital.jpg

Visual ModelQ provides digital control laws, digital filters, and the ability to run as many sample rates at one time as you need. Filter gains are recalculated each time the sample rate is changed...even while the model is running.

9. FFT-based dynamic signal analyzers
Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: C:\Users\George.Ellis\Documents\WebSite\QxDesign2012\Visual ModelQ\Feature_DSA.jpg

The frequency domain is important to designers and here, no tool is more useful than the Bode plot. That's why Visual ModelQ provides the dynamic signal analyzer that gives Bode plots with a click.

10. Dial Meters

Easy-to-use dial meters provide a continuously updated display of any signal on your model diagram. You get complete control of the display including dial size, min and max range, and label fonts. Choose needle, dial face, and label colors.

11. On-screen meters
Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: C:\Users\George.Ellis\Documents\WebSite\QxDesign2012\Visual ModelQ\Feature_Meter.jpg

Drop a meter on the screen and receive continuous updates. Read root-mean square (RMS), average, or even the magnitude and phase of a harmonic.

12. Support for Motion Control

Visual ModelQ provides specialized support for Motion Control modeling such as position trajectory generators, DQ motor models, and specialized models for motor feedback.

13. Program blocks
Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: C:\Users\George.Ellis\Documents\WebSite\QxDesign2012\Visual ModelQ\Feature_Program.jpg

When standard blocks don't quite do the job, write your own. Program blocks support a subset of the C programming language including algebraic and Boolean math, if/else if/else, curly brackets, and all the standard math functions.

14. Multiple pages

Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: C:\Users\George.Ellis\Documents\WebSite\QxDesign2012\Visual ModelQ\Feature_Pages.jpg

With Visual ModelQ, you can split you model into as many pages as you need. Connecting between pages is easy and you can title each page to organize your model.

15. Application documentation
Description: Description: Description: Description: Description: C:\Users\George.Ellis\Documents\WebSite\QxDesign2012\Visual ModelQ\Feature_Documentation.jpg

Visual ModelQ provides permanent space for application-specific documentation in just about every block. You can inform your colleagues (or just remind yourself later) why you did what you did.
