Bosch Rexroth Corp.: Controls platform
Visual Motion 10 from Bosch Rexroth is a fully-reusable motion-control platform. It allows OEMs and end users to retain their initial programming investment, while a newly integrated, IEC 61131-3 compliant, multi-tasking PLC allows for combined motion and logic on a single hardware and software platform.
In addition VisualMotion 10 provides the ability to connect up to 32 PPC controllers together by means of cross-communication to provide highly synchronized motion control for up to 1 axes of motion. This new platform is especially suitable for meeting packaging requirements with its ability to perform on-the-fly synchronization and on-the-fly changes between different products and materials on a machine.
