Interconnectedness at All Levels
Interconnectedness at All Levels

For Bosch Rexroth, the 2013 Hannover Messe theme of Integrated Industry means more than just IT topics. In addition to open interfaces for data interchange and new engineering tools, Bosch Rexroth maintains close ties to machinery manufacturers and end customers. The company is going in new directions with a number of development partnerships. There are two main topics at the forefront of those changes: increased energy efficiency and more efficient engineering.

Increased energy efficiency
Bosch Rexroth will be presenting a number of solutions for increased machine and plant energy efficiency at the Hannover Messe. A drive concept with the Sytronix variable speed pump drives promises significant savings potential, resulting in a positive effect on TCO. With Sytronix, users can reduce hydraulic power consumption by up to 80% while maintaining the same level of productivity - or better. They also reduce mid-range noise emissions by up to 20 dB (A) and increase hydraulic oil lifespan thanks to low heat input.

More engineering freedom
With the new integrated IAC-2X axis controller, Bosch Rexroth offers yet another addition to the highly scalable automation kit. Using open interfaces, the single-axis motion control now simplifies automation to the popular Ethernet-based real-time protocols of Profinet RT, EtherNET/IP, SERCOS III, EtherCAT, and VARAN and integrated best-in-class hydraulic controllers. Users benefit from flexible axis controller integration into the superordinate control networks, independent of the control manufacturer. For simple engineering, IndraWorks offers controller dialogs and parametrizations tailored to hydraulic functions.

Efficient engineering with new levels of freedom
Increasing demand for multi-technology solutions in industrial automation makes an integrated engineering approach necessary. With the IndraMotion MLC, Bosch Rexroth offers a motion logic system that is also now preconfigured for hydraulic drive tasks. It can be used for the combined operations of electric, hydraulic, and hybrid drives. In the future, IndraMotion MLC users will also be able to access the control kernel from high level language-based applications thanks to open core engineering.
