With the new automation platform "Ctrlx Automation" highlights Bosch Rexroth the classic boundaries between machine control, IT and the Internet of Things. The scalable platform enables the flexible design of centralized and decentralized automation topologies. With a Linux real-time operating system, open standards, app programming technology, web-based engineering, and comprehensive IoT connectivity, we reduced the engineering overhead by 30 to 50%.

Aerotech presents its "Automation1" control platform, which, among other things, demonstrates force regulation in a demo system with the ACT115DL linear high-performance actuator. The motion control platform functions as a complete machine control with all components and thus offers much more than a pure motion control.

With the control unit NRGC-PN of Carlo Gavazzi can be controlled and monitored up to 32 chained RG_CM_N series solid state relays or contactors. It has two RJ45 ports for the Profinet interface. By means of the Profinet-IO communication protocol, the switching processes of the semiconductor relays can be controlled directly from the PLC and the real-time data from each semiconductor relay can be recorded.

Heidenhain controllers offer 1 process reliability, accuracy and productivity from batch size. With component monitoring in the new TNC 640 With 24 "widescreen and Extended Workspace Compact, the company introduces a new option for TNC controllers.
Linking the process data of the control level directly into the IT world is becoming increasingly important in the course of the digital transformation. From now on, the "Melsec "controls from Mitsubishi Electric be connected to higher-level systems via the established IBH Link UA. Also MQTT is directly possible for the cloud connection.
