With BODAS, Rexroth supplies a suitable and unique system which meets all requirements for the electronic control of mobile equipment.
As a system, BODAS distinguishes itself with its consistent modular architecture with matched interfaces. As a result, it is very easy to integrate all components. Effective machine controls can, thus, be developed quickly and affordably. Existing solutions can easily be extended with additional functions. The optimal matching of the BODAS system to Rexroth hydraulics also increases the efficiency of the entire working machine.
The proven, freely programmable RC controllers are the heart of the BODAS hardware modules. Sensors, displays and joysticks round out the line of BODAS hardware modules. Thus, BODAS supplies all components for a complete electrohydraulic drive system from a single source. Complete solutions combining travel functions and working functions are optimally matched to one another.
Thanks to the BODAS RC controllers and peripheral devices which have been tried and tested in demanding day-to-day use of mobile equipment, BODAS is able to ensure high reliability and availability of your machine in spite of harsh mechanical demands, extreme summer and winter conditions or strong electromagnetic disturbances.
The BODAS software, which contains the specific Rexroth application know-how, is modularly structured as well. Depending on the desired function, select from software modules which are matched to one another and configure them yourself. Individual and customized concepts are also possible with the BODAS system. Building on the software modules or starting from scratch, you can develop your own solutions yourself – or draw upon Rexroth's experience as a proven service provider. You can create the programs with either BODAS-design according to standard IEC61131-3 or in C using the BODAS C-API system libraries. In both cases, you are supported with user-friendly documentation.
In addition to the BODAS-design programming system, additional tools provide important assistance while performing simulations or diagnostics during the optimization of the entire machine control.
The Bosch Factor
The BODAS system profits from the close cooperation between Rexroth and Bosch. This "Bosch factor" in development, testing and automotive large-series production results in a stable and extremely high product quality. It contributes to high availability of your machine in demanding daily use.
In addition to the BODAS system, mobile electronics are also available as 'integrated electronics and sensor systems' in hydraulic components. These are described with the respective hydraulics components.
