Trio Motion

Trio Motion

Trio Motion Technology is a specialized source of high performance motion control technology. Trio's comprehensive range Motion Coordinators allows seamless control of 1 to 64 axes of servo motors, stepper motors, piezo motors or hydraulic systems. Our flexible, modular controller range uses a common user interface and standard programming language.Visit Website

Motion Coordinators

Trio Motion Technology’s range of motion controllers, Expansion Modules, I/O modules and keypads are designed to enable the control of industrial machines with the minimum of external components. In many applications, Trio’s range can be combined to build a control system capable of driving a multi axis machine and all its auxiliary equipment.

The Motion Coordinator system allows you to control up to 64 servo or stepper motors with Digital I/O and additional equipment such as keypads and displays all controlled from a single master. Systems may be used with a stand alone program or alternatively commands can be sent from an external computer.



MC464

MC464 Motion Coordinator (64 axes)

The MC464 is Trio’s highest performance and most flexible Motion Coordinator and is based on the 64bit 400MHz MIPS processor making it ideal for high axis count machines or robotic applications.

The MC464 supports up to 64 axes of motion with 64 bit integer position registers for ultra precise axis resolution. Using expansion modules the MC464 supports up to 64 networked digital drives, 24 analogue servo drives, 24 pulse and direction drives and 64 absolute and incremental encoders in any combination.

MC4N ETHERCAT
MC4N ETHERCAT (32 axes)

The MC4N is a new concept in high performance Motion Coordinators which is dedicated to running remote servo and stepper drives via the EtherCAT real time automation bus. It is based on an up-rated version of the 532MHz ARM 11 processor which makes it ideal for high axis count machines or robotic applications.

The MC4N supports up to 32 axes of motion with 64 bit integer position registers for ultra precise axis resolution. EtherCAT slave drives and I/O can be connected and run in cyclic synchronous position, speed or torque modes provided these are supported by the drive.

MC405
MC405 (5 axes)

The MC405 is a high specification Motion Coordinator using a high performance ARM11 processor, with five flexible axis ports and four Voltage outputs.

The flexible axis ports can be configured in software as feedback devices or pulse direction outputs.

MC403
MC403 (3 axes)

The MC403 is a high specification Motion Coordinator using a high performance ARM11 processor, with three flexible axis ports and two Voltage outputs.

The flexible axis ports can be configured in software as feedback devices or pulse direction outputs.

I/O Modules

All Motion Coordinators, whether PCI, panel mount, rack mount, DIN rail mount or a custom design format, incorporate a CANbus interface to allow for digital or analogue I/O expansion with Trio’s I/O modules. Special I/O requirements can also be accommodated using the CANopen protocol to control third party I/O modules.


Trio IO Modules
CAN 16 OUTPUT

This provides 256 distributed output channels at 24Vdc level. All points are short-circuit proof and completely isolated from the CANbus. P317 modules may be mixed on the same bus, with other types in the Trio CAN I/O range.

CAN 16 INPUT

This provides 256 distributed input channels at 24Vdc level. All input points are high level (24V in = ON) and completely isolated from the CANbus.

CAN 16 INPUT/OUTPUT

This provides 256 distributed bi-directional input/output channels at 24Vdc level. All input points are high level, (24V = ON) all outputs are short-circuit proof and the I/O is completely isolated from the CANbus.

CAN 8IN/4OUT ANALOGUE

The CAN Analogue I/O module offers a compact DIN rail mounted analogue input/output capability for Trio Motion Coordinators. Each module provides 8 channels of 12-bit (+/-10V) analogue inputs and 4 channels of 12-bit (+/-10V) analogue outputs.

CAN 8 RELAY OUTPUT

The Trio CAN8 Relay module offers a compact DIN rail mounted relay output expansion capability for all Trio Motion Coordinators. Up to 16 P327 modules may be connected to the CAN network which may be up to 100m long. This provides 128 distributed low power relay channels at up to 30Vdc or 49Vac. All output points are Volt-free contacts and are completely isolated from the CANbus. P327 modules may be mixed on the same bus, with other types in the Trio CAN I/O range.

Operator Interface (HMI)

Trio’s unique UNIPLAY HMI system is a revolutionary way to make operator interfaces better, easier and more secure! The UNIPLAY series boasts a 7" and 10" colour display. see supplier page
