Trio Motion Technology launch the MC664, MC664-X and MC508; Three new high performance controllers now available from Micromech.

Trio Motion - MC664, MC664-X and MC508

 

MC664 (Single Core Processor) and MC664-X (Quad core Processor)

Trio’s MC664 and MC664-X are its highest performance and most flexible Motion Co-ordinators to date, based on a powerful single or Quad Core Cortex A9 1GHz ARM processor.

 

Features and benefits overview:

  • Single or quad core formats available.
  • Up to 128 axes in software with up to 64 motor axes and 64 bit integer position registers
  • 64 bit floating point calculations are used for ultra precise axis resolution. (Quad Core version)
  • Dedicated Communications Core (Quad Core version)
  • EtherCAT, Sercos, SLM and RTEX Digital Drive Interfaces
  • EnDAT, BISS and SSI Absolute Encoder Supported
  • Hardware Linked Outputs for Camera / Laser Control
  • Ethernet-IP / Modbus TCP / Ethernet Interface Built-In
  • Anybus-CC Module for Flexible Factory Comms Including ProfiNet/Profibus
  • Expansion modules provide support for up to 64 networked digital drives, 24 analogue servo drives, 25 pulse and direction drives and 25 absolute and incremental encoders.
  • Axes can be programmed to move using linear, circular or helical or spherical interpolation, electronic cams, linked axes and gearboxes.
  • Quad core 1GHz processing power allows for simultaneous running of multiple robotic transformations (Quad Core version)
  • Built-in Ethernet port allowing connection and direct programming of common HMI and PLC protocols.
  • User programs can be written in Trio’s established multi-tasking TrioBASIC language using the powerful Motion Perfect application development software making complex motion easy.
  • An option for the industry standard IEC 61131-3 languages is available allowing a fully functional PLC programming system.
  • Bright easy to read backlit display enables the controller status to be easily determined.
  • Single piece metal cast backplate provides an integrated earth chassis to improve noise immunity in the industrial environment.
  • RoHS and CE Approved

EtherCAT

The MC664-X (P862) Quad Core Motion Coordinator comes with 2 built-in EtherCAT axes. These can be upgraded with the purchase of P914 Remote Axis FECs (Feature enable codes) making MC664-X ideal for high axis count machines and robotic applications.

Each P914 doubles the available axes:
MC664-X + 1 x P914 = 4 Remote Axes
MC664-X + 2 x P914 = 8 Remote Axes
MC664-X + 3 x P914 = 16 Remote Axes
…..Up to…..
MC664-X + 6 x P914= 128 Remote Axes

The quad core 1GHz processing power allows for multiple robotic transformations to run simultaneously.

The MC664 (P861) Single Core Motion Coordinator is a direct replacement for its predecessor the MC464. The MC664 has a built-in EtherCAT port but no axes are enabled by default.
Axis expansion modules feature many options for Drive Network interfaces, analogue servo, pulse/direction, absolute or incremental feedback and accurate hardware registration.

The controller’s functionality and connectivity can be configured by attaching up to 7 half-height expansion modules or 3 full-height expansion modules. Axes are activated using the FEC system, which allows the controller to be configured to suit the application exactly.

Trio MC508

 

 

MC508
Trio’s MC508 is a high specification Motion Coordinator based on a high performance ARM Cortex A9 800 Mhz Processor, with eight Voltage outputs and eight flexible axis ports, configurable for up to sixteen pulse and direction output axes or eight closed loop servo axes.

It boasts 128 MBytes of RAM; 32 of which is available for user programs and user table space.

Features and benefits overview:

  • Advanced 8 Axis Closed Loop Servo / 16 Axis Pulse Direction
  • Total of 32 Digital Inputs and 16 Digital Outputs
  • EnDAT, BiSS and SSI Absolute Encoder Supported
  • Axes can be programmed to move using linear, circular, helical or spherical interpolation, electronic cams, linked axes and gearboxes
  • Flexible CAM shapes, Linked Motion
  • Hardware Linked Outputs for Camera / Laser Control
  • Ethernet-IP / Modbus TCP / Ethernet Interface
  • Industry standard IEC 61131-3 languages allowing a fully functional PLC programming system
  • Multi-tasking BASIC Programming
  • Text File Handling
  • Robotic Transformations
  • SD Memory Card Slot
  • CANopen I/O Expansion
  • Backlit LCD Display
  • RoHS, UL and CE Approved
  • Bright easy to read backlit display enables the controller status to be easily determined.
  • Single piece metal cast backplate provides an integrated earth chassis to improve noise immunity in the industrial environment.

The flexible axis MDR type connectors allow single cable connection to the drive. 3m MDR cables can be purchased separately (P382). Each port can be configured in software as a feedback device or a pulse direction output. Pulse and direction outputs can be used with stepper or servo drives or as a simulated encoder output. When configured as a feedback device they can be either incremental encoder inputs or one of four common absolute encoder types; SSI, BiSS, Tamagawa or Endat. All feedback axes can be used to form a closed loop servo with a voltage output.

The Ethernet port allows connection and programming of common HMI and PLC protocols.

User programs can be written in Trio’s multi-tasking TrioBASIC language using the powerful Motion Perfect v4 application development software making complex motion easy.

The MC508 is available in 2 different axis configurations. Both models feature a total of 32 axes in software. Any axes not assigned to built-in hardware can be used as a virtual axis.
