IndraControl S20 and S67 – real-time communication with the peripherals

With the increased networking of machines, the scope and importance of control peripherals are also growing. Bosch Rexroth provides users with a comprehensive and high-performance I/O portfolio for this purpose. The IndraControl S20 and S67 I/O families reduce the engineering effort by means of easy integration. With high performance thanks to very short update times and the highest synchronicity, they provide data communication in real time, allowing for higher control quality between the controller and peripherals. The fully modular design of the I/O systems provides with maximum flexibility for the economical realisation of customised machine concepts.

  • IndraControl S20

    IndraControl S20 for the control cabinet

    The IndraControl S20 I/O I/O system with protection class IP20 is the freely scalable I/O system for fast cycle times and maximum precision, whether installed locally in the IndraControl XM embedded control hardware from Rexroth or as a decentralised I/O station. IndraControl S20 I/O allows for real-time applications with the shortest cycle times. The fastest I/O technology available on the market is easy to install thanks to toolless wiring, and convenient to parameterise via the IndraWorks engineering framework from Rexroth. For constantly rapid and safe signal processing. For maximum availability and time-saving, safe automation.

    • Reduced reaction times and synchronous process data processing for increased measurement accuracy, control quality, and cycle speeds
    • Individually combinable modules with extensive functionality
    • Channel-wise diagnostics via LED or in the PLC
    • Flexible integration with the Sercos automation bus, PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT, Modbus or PROFIBUS
    • Robust design with a standard, expanded temperature range, minimal EMC emission and high vibration resistance
    • Partitioning of local bus, electronics, and peripheral levels
    • Simple station structure and device swap thanks to the toolless installation
    • On the safe side: Safety modules for CIP Safety on Sercos and PROFIsafe on PROFINET or PROFIBUS

  • Connectivity

    Flexible communication

    Open communication standards allow you to perfectly integrate the IndraControl S20 and S67 I/O modules with maximum availability. The modules can be flexibly integrated with the Sercos automation bus, PROFINET, EtherNet/IP, EtherCAT, Modbus or PROFIBUS.

  • Integration

    Easy Integration

    The I/O components can be easily integrated into the Rexroth control hardware: By means of the direct side-by-side arrangement of the IndraControl S20 I/O modules or the integration of the decentralised IndraControl S67 I/O stations via a variety of fieldbus couplers, I/O integration in the IndraControl XM embedded control hardware is very easy. With the IndraWorks engineering framework, all I/O modules can be conveniently parameterised – by standardised description files simply integrate into the control solutions.

  • Synchronicity

    The real-time processing of signals

    The high-performance system bus from IndraControl, in conjunction with the internationally standardised Sercos automation bus, sets the standard when it comes to speed: The update rates for signal processing are only 1 µs per module, depending on the version. External encoder measurement systems can thus be integrated in the control loop, without the need for an encoder cable to be laid to the control cabinet. However, they allow for the high-dynamic control of axes. At the same time, the high-speed modules solve challenging counting functions. The interplay of extremely short cycle times and fast signal processing reduce response time and increase measuring accuracy. And that enhances the control quality when in operation.

  • Safety

    On the safe side

    The new safety modules in the IndraControl S20 series provide safe communication with CIP Safety on Sercos, or PROFIsafe on PROFINET and PROFIBUS.

    The safe modules can be freely combined with standard modules and offer the same advantages of simple commissioning, high robustness and short cycle times. The IndraControl S20 safety modules are certified according to SIL 3 (EN 61508), SILCL 3 (EN 62061) and category 4 / PL e (EN ISO 13849-1).
