Easy and flexible system configuration with modular I/O expansion
Bosch Rexroth’s IndraControl XM21/22 programmable logic controller (PLC) combines the speed of the Sercos automation bus with Rexroth’s IndraControl S20 input/output (I/O) series for one functionally complete and scalable control system.
Ideal for all factory automation and motion logic applications, the IndraControl XM platform is easy to configure and features high performance real time data processing capabilities. The controller is available with either an IntelR 600 or 1,300 MHz ATOM processor, along with an on-board Sercos master featuring a cycle time of 250 μs.
By integrating the company’s modular IndraControl S20 I/O series into the controller, Rexroth adds to the flexibility of the control system. Optional extension modules further expand the integration options, while a service-friendly design reduces installation costs.
Decentralised I/Os, drives and additional system machinery are connected via Ethernet-based Sercos as a universal automation bus for system-wide networking. Enhancing the scalability, the XM controller uses Rexroth’s standard IndraMotion MLC system firmware for motion logic applications.
Compatible with a wide range of control topologies, Rexroth’s IndraControl S20 I/O units feature short module reaction times of 1 μs per module for efficient production cycles and real-time signal processing of measuring systems and intelligent sensors, even under extreme conditions.
