The MC403 is armed to thrill

The MC403 is a high specification Motion Co-ordinator using a high performance ARM11 processor that provides up to 2 axes of servo plus a master encoder axis or up to 3 axes of stepper control. The MC403 features a total of 8 axes in software where any axes not assigned to built-in hardware can be used as a virtual axis.


  • ARM11 Processor with Double Precision Floating Point
  • Digital / Analogue I/O
  • Selectable servo update 125 – 2000 microseconds
  • Ethernet programming interface
  • 3 axis step and direction / 2 axis servo
  • CANbus expansion port
  • Multi-tasking TrioBasic programming
  • IEC 61131-3 programming support
  • Micro SD Card memory slot

All three encoder ports can be either incremental or one of three popular absolute encoder types; SSI, Tamagawa or EnDat, additionally the third axis can be used as a stepper, reference encoder input or a sync encoder output. The built-in Ethernet port allows programming and connection of common HMI and PLC protocols directly to the MC403. User programs can be written in Trio’s established multi-tasking TrioBASIC language using the powerful Motion Perfect application development software thus making complex motion easy. Every axis can be programmed to move using linear, circular or helical or spherical interpolation, electronic cams, linked axes and gearboxes.

There is also available an option on the MC403 to use the industry standard IEC 61131-3 runtime is an easy to use fully functional PLC programming system. Two LED’s enable the controller status to be easily determined, whilst the single piece metal cast back-plate provides an integrated earth chassis to improve noise rejection in the industrial environment.
