SABO Mobile IT – Apex Metronix – Monitoring and parameterization of industrial servo controllers

Project Goals

Over 70 000 tested servo controllers leave the Metronix Braunschweig factory every year. The wide range of different products is built on a common platform, which can be quickly adapted to customer-specific requirements based on Metronix standard devices. This customization offers the user many new degrees of freedom. SABO has developed a cross-platform, mobile application that enables instant remote connection to Metronix servo controllers to view and control their status, operating values, modes and protocols.

Challenges

Metronix Servo Drives is a cross-platform, mobile application that enables remote control of industrial servo controllers via Bluetooth. SABO has delivered a BLE (Bluetooth Low Energy) GATT communication layer with high data throughput, which enables fast data update and asynchronous connection to multiple servo controllers simultaneously. This was realized within a few months.
