Starting with release 1.2107.15 of ctrlX Configurator, it is possible to dimension motors via their performance characteristics as well as via the definition of operating points. Each operating point is defined via its maximum or continuous values in torque/speed diagrams or alternatively in power/speed diagrams.
Selecting the mode of motor dimensioning
In the motor configuration dialog, the buttons "Characteristics" and "Operating Points" are used to select the respective mode for the motor dimensioning, see illustration below.
Characterictics: product configuration is based on the input data for maximum torque, stand still torque and maximum speed
Operating Points: product configuration is based on operating points with input data for torque/speed or alternatively for power/speed
Please note following restrictions:
In the configuration mode the usage of product filter is not possible.
Changing the configuration mode will cause the reset of the previous sizing settings, this is indicated by the dialog shown below.
Changing the configuration mode from "Chacteristics" to "Operating Points" will additionally delete the product filter settings.
Input of working points
Switching the input data between torque/speed and power/speed is done via the dropdown menu in the diagram, see illustration below.
The application-related data is entered via the table below the displayed diagrams of the motor variant currently selected by ctrlX Configurator. Switching the input data between maximum values and continuous values is done in the drop-down menu for each operating point, see illustration below.
When entering the both values of the operating points, the configurator compares these values with other user configurations (e.g. ATEX) and automatically selects the appropriate motor variant. The diagram and the type code change according to the selected motor variant and the new operating point is displayed, see illustration below.
Determination of the suitable motor variant
The following user configurations are reset when determining the suitable motor variant:
Settings of maximum torque, stand still torque and maximum speed via sliders in "Characterictics" motor configuration
Maximum flange size
If the last entered operating point does not have valid values or a user-related product configuration causes a conflict for finding a suitable motor variant, the user receives the message below.
OPERATING POINT NOT VALID
You have entered an operating point for which no product is available for your configuration. The operating point is reset. Please check the input values and your product configuration.

Starting with release 1.2107.13 of ctrlX Configurator, it is possible for Bosch Rexroth internal users to display SAP list prices for configured products. The list prices are retrieved via the connected SAP web service and cached in the CPQ database. They are displayed in the product configurators, in the list view and in the details dialog for the complete configuration including accessories, see screenshots below.
Please note the boundary conditions :
List prices are available for
Bosch Rexroth internal users
all saleable products with material number and status AV or PT
new product variants based on SAP variant configuration w/ material number
new product variants based on SAP variant configuration w/o material number but Uplift-enabled (means commercial data are maintained in SAP)
complete product configurations including selected accessoires or I/O modules
Note: Restrictions will be eleminated in future releases. The display of list prices for customers will be provided in conjunction with the planned connection of ctrlX Configurator with Rexroth Store.
Enhanced information on the display of list prices
The displayed list prices are dynamically queried from SAP. To optimize response times, the list prices for each product configuration are cached in ctrlX Configurator. This caching takes place after the first price query and may be reset by system administrators when list prices are changed.
If there is no price for a product configuration available in ctrlX Configurator, the user has to click on the blue button "Request price" to display the list price. The price request may not be successful for the following reasons: - The product variant has no material number and the list price is not yet maintained (message " Failed to fetch") - the product variant has a material number but sales status is not AV or PT (message " Material Rxxxxxxxxx has status: Development part")

thank you the information. This is a bug and will be fixed in the next release. As a workaround: please start the product configurator of MSN05 and set the size to MSN07 via the product filter (see attached screenshot). This changes the default setting to the type MS2N07-B1BNN-CMSG1-NNNN-NN.
