Open Core Engineering


Our Open Core Engineering makes your software engineering faster and easier to setup, while delivering freedom and flexibility to operators to achieve more complex drive and control functions with maximum efficiency.

Easily connect PLC-based automation to high-level language-based applications and the latest IT automation technology, all through the premium Sercos III protocol.

Open Core Engineering combines previously separate PLC and IT worlds into one comprehensive solution portfolio, with open standards, software tools, function packages and the Open Core interface.

This interface gives direct access to all control functions, allowing individual real time control functions to be quickly and independently implemented.

The Open Core Interface has additional support for MathWorks, Modelica-based tools and programming in Lua and Java.

WebConnector: universal connection between web and automation


Entering the Industry 4.0 era, deployment of the web is essential for maximum dialogue between control and HMI applications.

WebConnector allows operators to create custom, web-based HMI applications, connecting your automation environment with stationary and mobile end devices.

Data networking has never been easier with WebConnector: web-based, variable, modular and totally independent with HTML 5 and Java technology.

This offers a variable number of control connections and possible HMI clients.

New innovations


A New World of Automation With ctrlX AUTOMATION


Bosch Rexroth’s ctrlX AUTOMATION is the most open automation platform on the market, reducing engineering time and effort by between 30% - 50%.

Our new ctrlX AUTOMATION platform removes the traditional boundaries between machine control systems, IT and the Internet of Things.

Centralised and decentralised automation topologies can now be created flexibly with the scalable platform.

The reduction of engineering time and effort was achieved through the Linux real-time operating system, open standards, app programming technology, web-based engineering and a comprehensive IoT connection.

CtrlX Automation encompasses the latest engineering software technologies and all PLC and motion tasks. The software functions can be combined in any number of ways with ready-made, customised and customisable apps.

MS2N motor

MS2N Servo Motor

Tectra Automation’s new MS2N Synchronous Servo Motor range combines high dynamics with compact dimensions and excellent energy efficiency.

With more torque and speed, the MS2N Servo Motor uses a practical, single-cable connection, while delivering high performance and extensive options for all servo mechanism requirements.

The new MS2N includes over 50 motor controller types in 6 motor sizes, 5 motor lengths, and more than 20 fully configurable options. Covering maximum torque up to 360 Nm and maximum rotational motor speeds up to 9 000 rpm, the MS2N Servo Motor is 30% smaller than its predecessor.

Additionally, this motor has a low rotor inertia for maximum dynamics and high rotor inertia creating optimal adaption motor masses.
