Courtesy: Bosch RexrothBosch Rexroth's Open Core Interface technology is designed mechanical engineering and machine programming for programmable logic controller (PLC) automation. The Open Core Interface allows for high-level language programming with enhanced access to the core of the control system, enabling machine builders to create their own individual functions without the need for additional hardware. Rexroth control platforms IndraLogic XLC (PLC), IndraMotion MLC (motion-logic) and IndraMotion MTX (CNC) support the direct implementation of individual high-level language programs into the control system. The programs have direct access to the firmware, which enables machine manufacturers to create control algorithms for complex functions and kinematics. The programmers can also use standard high-level languages such as C/C++.

Rexroth also provides machine manufacturers with an extensive library that programmers can use to directly access the control function when developing individual functions. This enables them to directly control axes without writing a single line of a PLC program. This new degree of freedom replaces the additional control hardware previously required for complex process functions such as quality assurance with camera systems, register control for optimized material processing, or decentralized order scheduling at the machine. Direct processing in the machine control system reduces this complexity and significantly shortens the cycle times.
