Bosch Rexroth IndraControl VEP PC-Based HMIs

Rexroth's IndraControl family of PC-Based HMIs includes the advanced VEP series featuring an embedded Windows CE system, providing the power and functionality of a PC but with flash card technology in a cost-effective operator panel.

(Hoffman Estates, IL - - The Bosch Rexroth IndraControl VEP series of PC-Based HMIs provides PC power and functionality with an embedded Windows CE operating system and flash card technology, making it a more cost-effective and robust option compared to traditional operator panels utilizing full PC platforms.

The VEP series is part of Rexroth's innovative IndraControl V family of PC-Based HMIs which uses cutting-edge flash card and PC processor technology, advanced operating systems and multiple operator platforms so equipment designers can chose the best configuration for each machine application and environment.

The IndraControl VEP is ideal for applications such as machine start-up, inputting values, jogging axes, recipe management and supervisory level HMI functions. It has a 600 MHz processor with 512 MB of RAM and 1 GB of memory to handle multiple software applications (PDF, Word, Excel, etc.). A 1 GHz processor is also available for even more performance.

Rexroth's IndraControl VEP is priced more moderately compared to a traditional PC and has lower memory requirements because of its Windows CE operating system. Applications can be created with WinStudio configuration software - the visualization module from the Rexroth IndraWorks software suite.

The IndraControl VEP can also be used as a soft PLC with a Profibus Master. Versions of the IndraControl VEP with combined touch-and-button panels are available for operation on machine tools.

Firmware is also available to make the IndraControl VEP suitable to use with standard CNC and PLC HMI applications such as Rexroth's MTX Compact CNC system, or with Rexroth IndraLogic L20 / L40 PLCs.

Rexroth's proven HMI interfaces and fieldbus connections, which are also available based on Ethernet, ensure optimum adaptation to the machine plant. In addition, the operator panel is virtually maintenance-free with its passive cooling system and non-rotating storage medium.

The IndraControl VEP is available in sizes raging from an 8.4-inch display to a 15-inch display. A USB port on the front offers extra functionality for a memory stick, keyboard or mouse.
