Courtesy: Bosch RexrothBosch Rexroth’s IndraControl XM21/22 programmable logic controller (PLC) combines the Sercos automation bus with Rexroth’s IndraControl S20 input/output (I/O) series for a scalable control system. The XM21/22 is designed for all factory automation and motion logic applications and features high-performance real-time data processing capabilities. The controller is available with an Intel 600 or 1,300 MHz Intel Atom processor along with an onboard Sercos master featuring a cycle time of 250 µs.

Integrating the modular IndraControl S20 I/O series into the controller is designed to add to the control system's flexibility. Decentralized I/Os, drives and additional system machinery are connected via Ethernet-based Sercos as a universal automation bus for system-wide networking. The XM controller also uses Rexroth’s IndraMotion MLC system firmware for motion logic applications.
