Bosch Rexroth variable-speed pump drive wins “Golden Mousetrap” best product award from Design News magazine

Sytronix SVP 7010

The Rexroth Sytronix SVP 7010 provides high dynamics and control accuracy along with energy efficiency and reduced noise level

Design News magazine, a leading mechanical and design engineering publication, named Rexroth’s Sytronix SVP 7010 variable-speed pump drive as a 2015 “Golden Mousetrap Best Product Winner” in the Automation and Control: Fluid Power Technologies category.

The magazine announced the winners of its annual awards program during a ceremony on February 10, 2015, at the Anaheim Marriott, in Anaheim, California, held in conjunction with the Pacific Design & Manufacturing trade show. The full list of winners is posted on the Design News website.

Golden Mousetrap Best Product awards were given in four major categories: Electronics and Test; Automation and Control; Design Tools; and Materials and Assembly. For more than 20 years, the Design News awards program has recognized exceptional products and celebrated engineering innovation.

This is the third time a Rexroth product has won a Golden Mousetrap award. Past winners were the A1VO35 variable displacement piston pump and IndraLogic XLC.

With Sytronix Variable Speed Pump Drives, including the new SVP 7010, Rexroth replaces the classic proportional valve technology with a drive system based on a motor pump unit that has high functionality and power density. Benefits include high dynamics, reduced noise and energy savings up to 80% as compared to conventional drive technologies.

The SVP 7010 is the latest innovation in the Sytronix family and can be used in both open and closed loop hydraulic circuits. Pumps for 2 or 4 quadrant operation are offered, with three levels of performance which allows the correct fit for nearly any machine configuration. Each Sytronix variable-speed pump drive consists of a unit equipped with frequency converter and control electronics, a standard or servo electric motor, and a hydraulic pump. SvP systems use the high dynamics of synchronous motors to achieve their considerable energy savings.

Overall, the Sytronix family comprises more than 100 preconfigured drive/pump combinations to meet the requirements of machine applications and performance. They are suitable for axis control tasks in both open and closed hydraulic circuits requiring high dynamics in addition to comprehensive electrical and electrohydraulic control options. Applications include plastics processing machines and presses.

Automation of measuring and testing machines in one step

National Instruments and Bosch Rexroth have introduced a perfectly matched control and drive solution at this year's NIWeek conference. The advantages of the control hardware CompactRIO and the programming environment LabVIEW are combined with dynamic servo technology. Rexroth’s pre-configured drive systems for measuring and testing machines cover a wide range of services and shorten the initial commissioning to just three minutes by means of a software wizard. Using a jointly tested and already proven interface, machinery manufacturers are programming motion sequences in the graphic environment LabVIEW without a single line of PLC code.
