Original Press Release:
Rexroth IndraMotion MLD for Low-Cost, Space-Savings and Greater Flexibility
Rexroth IndraMotion MLD is a drive-based solution for single and multiple axis applications.
IndraMotion MLD from Bosch Rexroth merges drive functions, motion control and processing logic into a modern, open automation platform for modular machine concepts. The drive-integrated motion and logic eliminates the need for higher-level controls.
Based on Rexroth's latest drive-based Motion Logic platform, IndraMotion MLD enables space-saving solutions with up to 8 axes - perfect for applications such as carton erecting and labeling.
The IndraMotion MLD sets new standards across the board, delivering greater flexibility and increased productivity. The main hardware component is Rexroth's highly-scalable digital drive system, IndraDrive. A Rexroth HMI can be connected directly to the drive via serial, Ethernet or Fieldbus for a complete system solution. The multi-axis version, IndraMotion MLD-M, utilizes the SERCOS III interface to enable drive-level programming, diagnostics and troubleshooting over standard Ethernet cabling.
IndraMotion MLD delivers real-time motion control combined with an IEC 61131-3 compliant PLC. Rexroth utilizes the IEC 61131-3 compliant IndraLogic sequence control system in all its controllers. The common elements ensure that program components can be reused even at different levels of automation. To facilitate start-up, Rexroth offers the modular IndraWorks engineering suite. It is based on modern .NET technology and allows even third-party software modules to be integrated.
