Monitor on Energy Consumption with Rexroth Software Rexroth IndraMotion MTX system software includes an energy and power monitor

IndraMotion MTX

IndraMotion MTX

The latest version of the system software for the Rexroth IndraMotion MTX CNC system contains a wide range of additional functions. Improved diagnostics and extended configuration options for the user interface help to make the software easy to use. New machining cycles, demand-orientated memory management and an extended look-ahead function mean that the CNC system can now be used even more efficiently. One special highlight is that the MTX vta optimization tool for analyzing the cycle time and MTX ega tool for analyzing energy have been integrated into the modular software system for the IndraWorks operating and engineering package.

The MTX ega energy and power monitor visualizes energy use and the power which is currently required. A trend indicator for regular measurements which are started automatically, for example when machining parts, provides a quick overview of the energy needs of the machine and its function modules. The machine manufacturer can tailor the level of detail of the data precisely to the application using functions to adjust the display for the main and secondary units.

Once again in this latest system software, Rexroth has paid particular attention to simplified, consistent operation. For example, a new configuration wizard helps the user to compile the measurement signals he requires. All the software modules can be used both individually and in combination. The inclusion of the MTX cta and MTX ega software in the IndraWorks engineering package means that measurements and data evaluations can now be carried out locally on the machine.

Calculation models can be created to include energy consumers which cannot be measured directly and these can be included in the measurement and analysis procedure. However, it is also possible to separate the measurement and evaluation if the software is used offline on an engineering PC or programming unit. This means, for example, that internal or external service providers can evaluate measurement data without a CNC system connected so as to draw up optimization measures.

Rexroth will be exhibiting at the AMB in Hall 4, Stand D12.
