MLC-H - Pressure and flow control system

A complete control for hydraulic, electric and hybrid drives with compact and control-based hardware.

Machines and plats are usually part of an entire network of process chains. Therefore availability and performance are important key factors for the success of the system and enterprise. Lowering the Total Cost of Ownership becomes more and more important. The rising demand for cross-technology solutions in industrial automation thus requires a consistent engineering approach. Flexible parameterization, easy commissioning and transparent diagnostics of all drives via one control system are what the our customers want.

A complete control for hydraulic, electric and hybrid drives with compact and control-based hardware: The IndraMotion MLC integrates an open PLC according to IEC 61131-3 with a powerful motion control. Rexroth is the pioneer in utilizing the advantages of motion logic systems also for hydraulic and hybrid drives. For the development of a cross technology control system Rexroth could benefits from its years of experience, know-how and system competence in thousands of applications.

The motion control software covers the special features of the hydraulic system and decouples drives physics from the automation system. The result, all drives behave the same for both the control system and the operator. Additional feature such as Wizard Generic Application Template (GAT), Seq.ST sequential programming and Bundled I/O speed up the commissioning and configuration considerably and underline the innovation momentum released by the IndraMotion MLC.

A complete control for hydraulic, electric and hybrid drives with compact and control-based hardware: The IndraMotion MLC integrates an open PLC according to IEC 61131-3 with a powerful motion control. Rexroth is the pioneer in utilizing the advantages of motion logic systems also for hydraulic and hybrid drives.

Open for new freedoms

This opens up new degrees of freedom in the modularization of your system, for IndraMotion MLC splits the drive physics from the automation. You can commission electric, hydraulic and hybrid drives equally conveniently and with the same engineering tools.

Open communications

Internationally standardized programming and open support of all common field bus systems and Ethernet protocols, reduces compexity: Irrespective of the master communication used, IndraMotion MLC fits seamlessly, thus reducing the number of variants required.

Open programming standards

Utilizing open programming standards, pre-defined function libraries and ready to use technology functions shorten your engineering times. Nevertheless, you can integrate own expertise securely at any time and thereby protect your competitive edge: IndraMotion MLC – open for your ideas.

Scalable

Standardization of complete automation.
Finely scalable for your application.

Software

Standardization of complete automation

IndraMotion MLC integrates Best in Class fluid power control technology into automation. For commissioning and operation no in-depth knowledge of fluid power is required. Predefined blocks and functions automatically compensate for all special characteristics with high control quality. For positioning in processing machines with micrometer accuracy or for lifting extremely heavy loads in plants – motion controls optimizes hydraulic to meet the most exacting demands.

Hardware

Finely scalable for your application

Only as much automation as you require. Be it for the central control of up to 32 axes or the decentralized control of up to 64 drives: Due to the strictly modular design of the finely scalable IndraMotion MLC, Rexroth always offers the right performance that is actually required for the relevant application.

Open programming standards

Rexroth integrated its comprehensive experience in the field of hydraulics in software. You can therefore benefit from the advantages of hydraulic drive technology such as high power density, robustness and efficiency for modern drive concepts in an optimum way.

Special, motion logic integrated hydraulic, position, velocity, force and alternating control functions perfectly assume the implementation of your automation sequences.

Easy-to-use

Ease of engineering.
Parameterization instead of programming.

From engineering and commissioning through to diagnostics, IndraWorks shortens the time from the idea to the finished solution. The consistent engineering environment for all IndraMotion systems simplifies handling of the PLC, motion and all drive technologies.

Parameterization instead of programming

Whenever possible, Rexroth replaces complicated and timeconsuming programming by parameterization. Of special importance for complex tasks: IndraWorks also supports multi-project management for simultaneous engineering with version and user administration.

Dialog-supported ‘Agents‘ with comprehensive online help and tool tips simplify the configuration and handling of system peripherals. You can parameterize all drive types according to the physical situation with the help of uniform, user-friendly dialogs. The project explorer provides the required overview and serves as control center for all devices and functions of IndraMotion MLC. In this way, you will reach your goal faster, for one standardized engineering environment is sufficient for all your automation tasks.

IndraWorks – the integrated engineering tool

In addition to a wide range of control functions for hydraulic axes, Rexroth offers a consistent engineering tool: IndraWorks. Key parts of an application are created interactively e.g. with the GAT wizard (Generic Application Template). Programming is then performed preferably with the SeqST, sequential programming. This reduces the amount of engineering work by up to 50%.
