Success Story

Retro­fit high-bay ware­house with Bosch Rexroth ctrlX

As a Certified Excellence Solution Partner for Automation, Quality Automation GmbH always uses the latest technologies from Bosch Rexroth. With a control system retrofit, we have successfully integrated the modular and future-proof industrial control system ctrlX CORE at one of our customers.

Retro­fit — sus­tain­able and future-proof

Due to a defect in the exist­ing con­trol sys­tem of a high-bay ware­house, we decid­ed, after joint con­sul­ta­tion with our cus­tomer, to use a high-per­for­mance and com­mu­ni­ca­tion-capa­ble con­trol plat­form: ctr­lX CORE. With the scal­able indus­tri­al con­trol sys­tem from Bosch Rexroth and the know-how of our con­trol experts, the replace­ment could be car­ried out in the short­est pos­si­ble time and high­ly efficiently.

The CPU ctr­lX CORE includ­ing an inter­face mod­ule was used. For the com­mu­ni­ca­tion between the con­trol and the periph­ery the automa­tion bus Ether­CAT mas­ter was used. For pro­gram­ming the devel­op­ment envi­ron­ment CODESYS was imple­ment­ed. In this project not yet real­ized, but in already planned projects, we will con­trol com­plete plants, HMI pan­els and ser­vo dri­ves with ctr­lX CORE.

The all-in-one solu­tion: ctr­lX CORE

With its open and flex­i­ble archi­tec­ture, the ctr­lX CORE indus­tri­al con­troller meets the cur­rent and future require­ments of the fac­to­ry of the future. In addi­tion to Ether­CAT, the con­trol hard­ware sup­ports many oth­er com­mon automa­tion pro­to­cols. The ctr­lX Device Por­tal enables remote access to the con­trollers as well as their easy man­age­ment and updating.

In net­worked envi­ron­ments, the Eth­er­net inter­face han­dles data-inten­sive infor­ma­tion exchange with high­er-lev­el IT sys­tems, HMI devices, and cloud-based appli­ca­tions. The con­troller sup­ports more than 30 IT and PLC IoT stan­dards such as OPC UA as serv­er and client as well as the wide­ly used MQTT protocol.
