Bosch Rexroth PRC7000
The new welding controls PRC7300 and PRC7400 from Rexroth. Maximum quality for welding all sheet thickness combinations from steel through aluminium. With the new welding control family PRC7000, Rexroth has further improved its proven control and monitoring concept. New software tools and the modular structure increase availability and simplify operation through reduced commissioning times. The use of the latest semiconductor technology reduces energy consumption by up to 80 percent. With numerous interfaces for commonly used communication protocols, the controller also fits into the networked production environments of the future.
Networkable for Industry 4.0
The PRC7000 welding controls are prepared for horizontal and vertical networking in Industry 4.0 environments. Users can physically separate the welding PC and the user interface from the welding cell. The multi-processor architecture - for process control and communication - increases the data transfer rate without repercussions on the welding process control. The controller exchanges data with higher-level systems over all standard Ethernet real-time protocols and is WLAN-capable. The integrated web server also allows wireless operation and diagnosis of the controller with smartphones or tablet PCs.
The new PRI7000 software for the commissioning, operation, and diagnosis controls multiple welding controllers with one piece of hardware. It simplifies operation with intuitive Windows and web-based applications. New communication interfaces reduce the response and waiting times. The control saves up to 10,000 welding programs and thus fits well into a multi-variant production process.
