Bosch Rexroth Motion Control: a closer look

IndraMotion MLD

The drive-based IndraMotion MLD combines motion and PLC functions to form a modern open automation platform for modular machine designs. Available as a single-axis control for simple applications and as a multi-axis control for applications with a maximum of 10 axes, the distributed control architecture establishes a compact motion-logic system based on the scalable IndraDrive platform. This means that higher-order controls are not necessary.

Open technology and communication interfaces allow for IndraMotion MLD to be integrated in your automation design:

  • Compact and powerful
  • Certified safety technology
  • Drive-integrated motion-control according to IEC 61131-3
  • Electronic synchronisation of up to 10 axis
  • Intuitive engineering with the software framework IndraWorks
  • Optional technolog

IndraMotion MLC

The control-based IndraMotion MLC is ideal for applications that require consistent, modern machine automation. It achieves this with its innovative software and firmware functions, easy engineering and open system interfaces which provide maximum flexibility.

Combining motion, robot and logic controls with technology functions permits you to synchronise freely scalable, multi-axis applications easily for centralised or decentralised solutions with a flexible control platform:

  • Integrated runtime system with motion, robot and logic controls
  • Extensive software libraries in conformity with IEC 61131-3 and PLCopen
  • Innovative motion function FlexProfile for complex motion sequences
  • Intuitive engineering with the software framework IndraWorks
  • Simple, open and flexible
