Digital Twins

Digital Twins are virtual models connected to real-world physical assets. They use live and simulated data to test different scenarios and guide design decisions from the very beginning. With Twin Activate, organizations can gain deep insights, speed up innovation, and make better engineering decisions at every stage of development.

Key Features of Twin Activate

1D System Simulation
Simulating at the system level is much faster than 3D simulation and allows for a full assessment of how a product will perform. By using simpler models, it is possible to quickly explore different designs and gain a better understanding of performance early in the design process.

Block Diagrams, Control System Design
The easy-to-use block-diagram modeling tool helps create modern smart systems that include sensors, actuators, feedback, and built-in logic.

Combine Signal-Based and Physical Modeling in Diagrams
Use pre-made Modelica libraries to easily model typical mechanical, electrical, hydraulic, and thermal parts.

Code Generation
Turn models into executable programs that can simulate dynamic behaviour. You can use these programs for different purposes, such as customising blocks, exporting to other simulation environments, creating standalone applications for Windows and Linux, targeting specific devices like Arduino, and more.

You can easily connect this software with other Altair tools.
This allows you to simulate various systems effectively. For example, you can use Altair MotionSolve for controlling movements, Altair Flux for managing motors, and Altair PSIM for simulating power converters and motor drives.

Import and Export Support for Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI)
This feature lets you easily share or use models with different software that follows the FMI standard.
