Nowadays, automation means software development. The high-performance and communication-ready ctrlX CORE control platform provides the basis for this. With the scalable compact control system, Bosch Rexroth has set new standards in the field of automation technology. With its open and flexible architecture, the Linux-based multicore technology breaks down the boundaries between embedded system platforms and drive-based technology. “One control system for everything” means less engineering, fewer components and higher productivity. The modular software toolkit is based on the latest app technology and opens up new degrees of freedom when producing, providing and using functions.
