Rexroth, a division of Bosch, is an engineering firm headquartered in Germany. The company manufactures products and systems in the industrial and manufacturing sector.
Bosch Rexroth's PLC solution supports a wide range of communication protocols, including EtherCAT, Ethernet/IP, and PROFINET. It recently opened its ctrlX OS software to be used by third-party automation providers, making the solution incredibly flexible, as customers can use the company’s PLC software to not only code ctrlX CORE controllers, but also other third-party controllers that can run the ctrlX OS.
Bosch Rexroth also scored as a Top Innovator for Industrial Automation: PLC Hardware and Software. The company provides manufacturers with an incredibly flexible PLC solution supported by a wide range of apps found in the ctrlX Store that allow for the rapid design and development of automation solutions. The company missed out on a top spot due to not having a SaaS deployment option, lack of simulation functionality, and weaker low/no-code capabilities
Bosch Rexroth is a Top Implementer in the Industrial Automation: PLC Hardware and Software market due to the company’s strong growth figures driving a competitive scoring in the bookings and customer base criteria. The company’s partnership network, its ctrlX World Partners, provides manufacturers with significant support in deploying automation solutions. Keeping Bosch Rexroth from a top spot in the implementation ranking was a lack of hot swapping capability and smaller customer base.
