Update controller

RKX is the tool for updating the software version of your controllers


Using the RKX you can update the Multi Control II controllers with a new software version and thus access new functions.Also, in the event of a replacement delivery to your end customer you can restore the individual factory settings (e.g. preactivated functions, certain software version etc.) so that integration into your customer‘s overall system works smoothly. Software profiles which have been individually adapted to you or your customer by RK Rose+Krieger can also be transferred to the controller.

Service controller

Access to fault history and present motor current


The RKX also provides you with access to the fault history of your MultiControl II. This feature can be used to read out the most recent 20 reports from the controller. The entries can be used to draw con- clusions relating to one-off or recurring faults, e.g. constructional distortions, faults in the voltage supply or overloaded drives. This data can be used to define further measures for optimisation of the service life and to reduce downtimes on your overall system.

Configuration RKX

Making settings to suit individual requirements and saving profiles


This menu item is used to configure various (pre) settings for the MultiControl II in accordance with your individual requirements. In addition, the entire system and the various premium functions can be started up intuitively. Moreover, the set options can be saved as (customer) profiles, allowing you to guarantee consistent functionality for your end customers.

Operation RKX

RKX can be used to check settings and move the drives


In order to check the settings made previously and determine the current motor current of your application, for instance, the drives can also be moved using the RKX. In addition to many further options, you can also set the premium functions (collision detection (SPP), drive group management, and relative and absolute positioning), memory positions and stroke limitation. That way, nothing stands between you and problem-free set-up of your or your customer‘s application.
