Bosch Rexroth’s new ctrlX DRIVE is a compact, scalable and consistent modular drive system. ctrlX DRIVE has space-saving dimensions of up to 50% and can provide tailored solutions with peak currents of 6 to 375 A.
Components in the ctrlX DRIVE system can be combined freely with one another, giving designers virtually unlimited combination options. With a reaction time of around 4 msec, ctrlX DRIVE offers one of the fastest SafeMotion solutions on the market. The continuous DC bus optimizes power requirement and reduces power loss. ctrlX DRIVE has a robust EMC design and its new power connector with integrated grounding concept allows even better interference resistance. It increases productivity, reduces the number of components needed and requires less engineering than previous solutions.
Other features include maximum torque of 4 to 692 Nm, functional safety up to SIL3, and open and flexible with multi-Ethernet and multi-encoder capability.
