This community offers the opportunity to discuss and exchange about the ctrlX AUTOMATION solution by Bosch Rexroth. This community is created by Bosch Rexroth for its customers, partners or other enthusiasts. Therefore, we welcome everyone with an interest in Bosch Rexroth products to join the community, as long as you observe these community rules:

Be engaged.

This community is a place for open discussion, sharing thoughts, ideas, knowledge and skills and asking questions. All are welcome and appreciated! Help us to build this community and knowledge source by engaging with other community members. Your participation is essential to help us improve, grow and make this community strong.

Do not pretend to be someone else.

Please do not create fake profiles or impersonate someone else. 

Respect others.

Respect people's time and attention by asking well-thought-out questions and sharing what you have learned so far in your experimentation or prior research. Respect people as individuals by keeping your tone positive and your comments constructive. Remember that behind each comment there is a real person. Treat others the way that you would like to be treated. Before giving feedback, ask yourself if you would appreciate to receive it. Criticize ideas with the purpose of improvement; do not criticize the people behind it. Always remember to treat others with respect, regardless of race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, political or religious preference, nation or region, gender, physical or medical condition

Be relevant.

Make sure your contributions are relevant to the mission of the community, to the specific discussion style and topic where you post. Please do not post duplicate messages in different areas of the community to avoid fragmenting discussion. If you have a new question, start a new thread rather than interrupting a conversation. Solicitations are rarely relevant. If you have something you want members to join, participate in, or buy, ask us first.

Do not violate Copyright & Confidentiality.

Remember that you are responsible for all activity associated with your account. Do not post anything that would violate any contractual agreements (copyright, trade secret or otherwise) or nondisclosure agreements to which you are a party  Whenever you share content that belongs to someone else, please ensure that you give the proper credit to the author(s) and that you have the authorization to do so.

Protect privacy – yours and others'.
