With the HNC100-3X Motion Control generation, Bosch Rexroth extends the possible applications for the HNC100 NC family of electro-hydraulic controls. The scalable generation in controller format controls up to four electro-hydraulic axes. Ethernet is used with SERCOS III and PROFINET RT and a parameterization interface. IndraWorks and the WinPed operating and parameterization software have become more user-friendly with the new functionalities and dialogs.
The HNC100-3x control electronics is best for the specific physical behavior of the hydraulics by means of high-performance hydraulic controller structures and NC commands tailored to the hydraulics. The HNC100-3x extends in addition to synchronization for up to four axes, improved curve functionalities, and expanded diagnostics options. The Motion Control has digital as well as analog encoder interfaces. Up to eleven configurable digital inputs / outputs are provided. The HNC100-3X will eventually offer SERCOS II, SERCOS III and PROFINET RT in addition to the field bus systems PROFIBUS DP and CANopen. It will thus enable parameterization independently of the serial interface.
With the SERCOS drive bus Rexroth is broadening the IndraMotion control concept for interpolating electric and hydraulic axes, which is scalable in hardware and software. The modular, innovative IndraWorks engineering environment provides the user with all software tools in a uniform look and feel for the commissioning, parameterization and diagnosis of Rexroth electric drives, hydraulic drives and controls.
