Rexroth Offers New Series of Compact HMI Solutions – IndraControl VR Series
The IndraControl VR series of embedded terminals are a cost-saving alternative to the PC-based panels and utilize the Windows 7 Compact Embedded operating system. The ARM Cortex-A8 800 MHz processor provides excellent performance and reliability. 512 MB of RAM, 256 MB of flash memory as well as an integrated SD card memory slot ensure plenty of space for a robust application. Rexroth’s HMI programming software, WinStudio, can be used to develop applications for the VR controller, moving all Rexroth operator interfaces to the same programming development software.
Everyone is talking about Industry 4.0 as vision of the future. From a pure automation point of view, it is not about an imminent revolution, but about an evolutionary development, which is ready for networking already today. In current Motion Controls and Motion Logic Systems for hydraulics, Rexroth already integrated numerous functions in software, which used to be controlled purely hydromechanically in the past. The specialties of fluid power technology are automatically compensated for. The decentralized controls perform their duties on their own and communicate with higher-level controls and master systems via open communication interfaces.
Rexroth presents the Sytronix SVP 7010, a further developed, variable- speed pump drive, which increases dynamics and control accuracy with intelligent software functions while clearly reducing the energy requirement of hydraulics.
Electromechanical cylinder from Rexroth: powerful with a hygienic design
With the second generation EMC electromechanical cylinder, Rexroth expands the possibilities for utilizing these compact drive units. With their hygienic design and IP65 protection class, they are now also suitable for applications with frequent cleaning cycles, such as those in the food industry.
