The powerful ctrlX CORE enhancement
With ctrlX I/O, Bosch Rexroth provides the ideal add-on for holistic automation solutions. This add-on connects the EtherCAT ecosystem to the machine control level.
The compact I/O portfolio allows simple installation and cabling as well as rapid exchange of individual modules or extensions. Configuration is not required because automatic recognition integrates each module independently. Additional communication standards and interfaces can be integrated via the I/O Performance Line for enabling forward-looking concepts.
Based on EtherCAT, ctrlX I/O supports real-time capable data processing. Simple configuration and commissioning shorten engineering times by up to 30%.
ctrlX I/O is designed for use in industrial environments and fulfills the strictest requirements in terms of vibrations, temperature rating, and protection class. Clever diagnostic concepts, on-board sensor systems, or smart module diagnostics via NFC increase machine up-time and speed up diagnostics in the event of errors.
- Clever diagnostic concept at module and channel level reduces standstill times
- Robust design with IP20 degree of protection for maintenance- and fault-free operation in the control cabinet
- Up to 20 I/O points on 12 mm installation width
- Flexible extensibility with performance functions
- Tool-free assembly thanks to ergonomic mechanical design and PUSH-IN technology
- Supports the IO-Link standard for integrating intelligent sensors
