Quick Start

Dashboards is automatically installed along with RT-LAB and HYPERSIM.

Creating a table

  1. Create a Table board from the Navigation Pane. See Menus and Navigation Pane.
  2. Go to your model’s table and select data points to be added to your board. See Data Point Tables.
  3. Use the context menu or drag and drop the data points into the board.
  4. Go to your Table board – it should now contain all of your data points of interest.

Creating a panel

  1. Create a Panel board from the Navigation Pane. See Menus and Navigation Pane.
  2. In the Panel, add widgets to the diagram. See Panels, Diagrams and Widgets
  3. For the complete list of widgets, see Widgets Library.
  4. Use the data point picker to connect your widgets to other data points. See Connecting Data Points.


  1. The path of the location of uninstall.exe is C:\OPAL-RT\OpalOne\<versionToUninstall>.
  2. Open the uninstaller and select the components to uninstall.
  3. If more than one version of Opal One is installed on your computer, the Opal One Database component and its data cannot be uninstalled.
  4. The uninstall option for the Opal One Database component will be available when uninstalling the last version of Opal One.

Known Issues & Limitations

  • No undo-redo;
  • No copy-cut-paste;
  • No scope widget;
  • No user authentication/session management;
  • Signal values can be visualized in Panels only, not in Tables;
  • Multi-dimensional parameters and signals not supported in Panels;
  • Renaming Simulink models in RT-LAB may result in synchronization issues in Dashboards;
  • For projects with more than 50k data points, it is recommended to use the Python API to create panels and connect data points.
