Indramat made three basic types of control:
Each of these controls comes in a variety of flavors.
When you need a replacement or repair, you’ll need to know the details of your control. How can you tell which one you’ve got?
Here are some questions that will help you identify the control you’re using.
Does it have removable firmware? The CLM 1.2 does not. This is the most basic of the controls. You’ll find removable firmware just below the keypad on the other CLM models.
What color is it? CLM controls often say “CLM” directly on the face. The CLM 1.3 is brown and the CLM 1.4 is gray, so the color is the easiest way to tell them apart. The CLC-D is green. The PPC, the newest, has the familiar Bosch Rexroth color scheme, with gray housing and a blue stripe.
Does it have a battery? The CLC-D uses a battery. If you’re having trouble with yours, replace it before you do anything more aggressive.
Chances are, running through these questions will give you a good start on identifying your component. Check it against the photos on our Controls page to be sure, and then give us a call.
