PCI 208

P180

Previous Generation

Not recommended for new projects!

The PCI 208 is based on a 120Mhz 32-bit floating point DSP supported by 8Mbits of SRAM, 32 Mbits of Flash memory and 128kbits of dual port RAM for PCI communications. A large FPGA provides for up to 8 stepper axes, or 8 axes with encoder feedback, or mixtures of the two, or up to 4 stepper axes with encoder verification.

PCI208

Highlights

  • Short PCI Card
  • 2-8 Axes Stepper/Servo control
  • High Speed Dual Port RAM Interface
  • OCX Software Component eases application software
  • Opto-isolated IO (2 In / 10Out) with CAN I/O expansion
  • 100 Way MDR Connector
  • 2 CAN Interfaces

Ideal For:

For +/-10v input servo drives an optional mezzanine board provides 16 bit resolution voltage outputs and analogue inputs. A DIN rail mounting break-out board eases the wiring interconnections for low-volume applications.

The PCI 208 is designed for motion control applications centred around a PC. Application programs written on the PC can access its facilities easily using an OCX component. It is also possible to run application programs on the PCI 208 in multi-tasking TrioBASIC language or to use both programming techniques.

Programming

Trio's Motion Perfect development software can be used to monitor the execution of programs, IO and motion. Complex motion such as cams, gears, linked axes, and interpolation is made easy with the comprehensive command set.

The PC I208 has 20 opto-isolated digital 24v inputs and 10 opto-isolated outputs. The inputs can be used as high-speed hardware registration inputs for highly accurate control of print and packaging lines.

Expansion

The I/O count can be expanded using Trio CANbus digital and analogue modules. The PCI 208 has 2 built-in CAN channels for I/O and axis control.

The basic PCI 208 has 2 stepper axes.  The axis count can be increased in single axis steps up to 8.  A P184 or P185 DAC board is required for analog output servo operation.

Products - CAN I/O Modules
CAN 16-Out I/O Module (P317)CAN
The Trio CAN16 Output module 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-In I/O Module (P318)CAN
The Trio CAN16 Input module provides 256 distributed input channels at 24Vdc level. All input points are high level (24V in = ON) and completely isolated from the CANbus.
CAN16 I/O Module (P319)CAN
The Trio CAN16 Input/Output module 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 8-In / 4-Out I/O Module (P326)CAN
The CAN Analogue I/O module provides 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 Module (P327)CAN
The Trio CAN8 Relay module 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.

Software - Programming
Motion Perfect
Motion Perfect is designed to make setup, diagnostics, commissioning and using our range of Motion Coordinators as simple as possible. It provides the user with an easy to understand Windows based interface for rapid application development, controller configuration and monitoring of controller processes.
Software - Support Apps
CAD2Motion
The program allows the user to create motion paths in a CAD package such as AutoCAD and convert them into code executable by a Trio Motion Coordinator.
CamGen
CamGen allows import of a set of points from Excel to build a smooth motion profile in a few minutes. CamGen is included in Motion Perfect v4.
AutoLoader
A compact, self-contained package designed to allow simple distribution of projects written using Motion Perfect. Simply add the project to the Autoloader folder, edit a script file to provide control of the loading sequence and send to the customer.
Trio MCLoader
The Trio MC Loader is a Windows ActiveX control which can load projects (produced with Motion Prefect) and programs onto a Trio Motion Coordinator. Communication with the Motion Cordinator can be via serial link, USB, Ethernet or PCI depending on the Motion Coordinator.
Trio PCMotion
PCMotion is an ActiveX component allowing direct connection to the Trio Motion Coordinator from a custom user application. It can be used to control any of the Motion Coordinator functionality as well as send text files down to the controller.
