Above all, ctrlX MOTION is characterized by its expandability and therefore adapts exactly to the user’s needs. Numerous apps are available from Bosch Rexroth that expand the system’s range of functions. Third-party apps and all open source-software can also be added at any time.
The ctrlX MOTION app runs on ctrlX CORE, ctrlX DRIVEplus with ctrlX CORE and on ctrlX COREvirtual as a simulation application. It provides the basic motion functions for single axis positioning. This concerns the operation of the axes in positioning mode as well as speed or torque control:
- PLCopen library
- Operation of gantry axis sets with torque, position or speed coupling
- Override setting in % for velocity and/or acceleration/deceleration
- Movment of the axes up to the fixed stop with defined torque
- Use of REST API commands for move command
The range of functions of the ctrlX MOTION app can be expanded with optional technology packages for robotics and handling or even systems with axis synchronization requirements, such as the Cartesian in-app from Bosch Rexroth.
