OBED – Through the hydraulics via app


Valves with new digital on-board electronics


Explore the world of hydraulics via app

Setting hydraulic valves manually with a multimeter and wrench? That was yesterday. Today, all you need is a mobile phone app and a Bluetooth connection to start using Rexroth hydraulic components with the new digital on-board electronics, adjust them during operation and carry out diagnostic tests. This not only saves machine manufacturers time and money – for users it means greater flexibility for process changes and improved availability.

Operating new digital on-board electronics is child’s play with smartphone and Bluetooth

It has never been easier to configure hydraulic valves, set them to the optimum dynamics and read out error messages. Connect to the digital control electronics OBED of Bosch Rexroth hydraulic valves via Bluetooth with the easy2connect app, independently of the control system. This speeds up commissioning, increases productivity, and maximizes availability.
