Starting with release 1.2103.06 of ctrlX Configurator it is possible to limit the automatic search of product variants in the configurators of ctrlX DRIVE for drives and motors. By specifying the desired sizes, an accelerated configuration of the desired product by the user takes place. Below is a description of how to use the new filter function.
Open filter dialog
In the product configurators of ctrlX DRIVE product family, the power range can be preset by selecting the desired product variants. To do this, the filter dialog is opened by clicking the button as shown in the figure below.
In the dialog, all performance values of the product variants of ctrlX DRIVE are listed. By clicking on "show more" the list is extended with further available variants.
Selection of power sizes
The filter setting for the automatic product selection by the configurator is made by selecting the desired power sizes for drives or sizes of motors in the filter dialog. The filtering must be confirmed by pressing the "ACCEPT" button. In the configuration dialog, a note informs the user about the set filter. In addition, the number of set filters is displayed on the button of the filter dialog. At the same time, the setting range of the application-related services is restricted. By clicking the "RESET FILTERS" button, the user can remove the set restrictions.
The first example below shows by selecting "XCS/XMS 100 A" the restriction of possible product variants of ctrlX DRIVE to a power size up to 100 A. In addition, the possible setting ranges of maximum current and continuous current are restricted.
The second example for the motors of ctrlX DRIVE below shows the restriction of possible product variants to size 05 by selecting "MSN05/MS2E05". In addition, the possible setting ranges of maximum torque, standstill torque and maximum speed are restricted.
The third example for the power supplies of ctrlX DRIVE below shows the restriction of possible product variants to continous power by selecting "XVR 45W". In addition, the possible setting ranges of maximum required power and continous DC bus power are restricted.

Starting with release 1.2103.06 of ctrlX Configurator, it is possible for the user to search for products with a known material number or type code, to view product details and to select products for inclusion in the configuration project. This allows specific product variants to be linked with other products for the desired automation solution. Additionally, within the dialog for showing product details the user is able to download mCAD and EPLAN data directly. The use of the "Search & Select" function is described below.
Please note following restrictions :
Products added to the configuration project using Search & Select will be reset to their initial values when reconfigured. This behaviour will be changed in the next release.
Following products are not supported by the product search with the current release and will be supported in future releases.
ctrlX DRIVE - XVE
Search of products
In the "ADD PRODUCTS" dialog, the user enters the material number or type code of the desired product in the "SEARCH" field.
Incomplete entries can also be made or wildcards can be used. Some examples of entries using ctrlX DRIVE drive family:
In the picture below, using the example of the embedded control family ctrlX CORE, after entering the proportional type key "COREX", the first five available product variants are displayed in a result list with material number and type key. Via the button "+ LOAD MORE" the result list is extended by further product variants, if available.
Showing product details
Further information on a listed product variant is showed by opening a dialog window via the icon marked with a green arrow below.
Download of CAD files
In the information dialog, the download of mCAD and EPLAN files for the selected product variant can be requested directly. This is done via the corresponding action buttons as shown highlighted below.
Adding products to a configuration
Adding a product variant from the result list to the configuration is done directly via the "+" button in the result list or alternatively via the information dialog using the "+ ADD PRODUCT" button . The product can then be further configured in ctrlX Configurator.
