Bosch Rexroth introduces Open Core Engineering technology

The company has come up with a solution which builds bridges between automation and IT
 Bosch Rexroth has opened the control core to enhanced access. Machine manufacturers can now create their own individual functions in a variety of high-level languages and operating systems that run parallel to the firmware directly on the control or on external devices.
Bosch Rexroth in IndiaDrive and control technology from Bosch Rexroth moves machines and systems of any size. The company bundles global application experience in the market segments of mobile applications, machinery applications and engineering, factory automation, and renewable energies to develop innovative components as well as tailored system solutions and services.
The company gets support of Indian markets for sales and marketing and application engineering for industrial and mobile hydraulics, electric drives and controls, linear motion and assembly technologies, pneumatics, and services. It has manufacturing of hydraulic valves, blocks, cylinders, and power units in Ahmedabad and customising unit is in Bangalore for power units, pneumatic panels, cabinets, cylinders, cutting and assembly line for linear motion products.
Open Core EngineeringMachinery manufacturers and users require more engineering efficiency for a faster time to market and future-proof automation solutions in order to protect their investments. At the same time, they are looking for possibilities to customise their machines economically with new automation ideas for machine processes and functionalities to meet the needs of individual customers. This is how they can set themselves apart from the competition. As a result, the wish for more flexibility to implement these customised concepts rounds out the list of new requirements.
Rexroth meets these requirements with Open Core Engineering. It represents Rexroth’s comprehensive package of solutions that increase engineering efficiency along the entire value stream for all drive and control technologies. Users benefit from accelerated engineering at lower cost and increased future-readiness based on open industry standards. At the same time, it provides new degrees of freedom for customisation and the flexibility for various programming languages and device classes. With Open Core Engineering, Rexroth helps machinery manufacturers focus on their core competency – the machine process.
Open Core Engineering uses the open core interface to connect previous engineering, which is based on the newest IEC standards. As a bridge between two separate environments, the open core interface allows the integration of various device platforms into integrated automation architectures.
Engineering efficiency The technology accelerates engineering efficiency decisively with software tools, function packages and multi-technology solutions. It makes contributions at every step, from project planning to programming and parameterisation, commissioning to service. Interfaces such as the automation interface further increase engineering efficiency. With it, engineering tasks can be carried out in an automated manner according to a script, and interfaces to eCAD systems.
It also replaces time-consuming programming of complex machine processes through simple parameterisation of customised technological functions.
Future-proof solutionsChoosing an automation system means a big investment for machinery manufacturers. Open Core Engineering protects this investment through the consistent use of open standards.
It uses the IEC 61131-3 and PLC open standards for open PLC programming. The automation bus Sercos can be homogeneously integrated into all solutions to this end. With its high performance, application flexibility and the number of available field devices on the market, a highly functional and more future-ready ethernet field bus is available as the backbone for state-of-the-art machine concepts.
Open Core Engineering continues to integrate the newest standards such as FDT/DTM for tool integration or OPC UA for M2M communication. Through multi-ethernet interfaces, Rexroth drives can also be integrated into heterogeneous automation topologies—which allows machinery manufacturers to create customised versions with regionally preferred communication systems without additional effort.
