Universal Control System Offers DeviceNet and EtherNet IP Connectivity

Bosch Rexroth offers a universal control system in its IndraLogic PLC platform, with DeviceNet and EtherNet IP connectivity. Users can now choose their dominant field bus with minimal engineering changes.

Uniform DeviceNet connectivity is now available as a scanner in the Rexroth motion and PLC controllers; the company’s panel-mount Inline I/O and IP67 Fieldline I/O systems; and in its IndraDrive servo and spindle drive platform.

Ethernet I/P adapter functionality with unsolicited explicit messaging is available via the local Ethernet port of the CNC and PLC controller. The company already offers Profibus DP as a standard fieldbus platform.
