Expandable

MC464

The axis expansion modules feature many options for Drive Network interfaces, analogue servo, pulse/direction, absolute or incremental feedback and accurate hardware registration.

Configure the controller functionality and connectivity by attaching up to 7 half-height expansion modules or 3 full-height expansion modules. Each module easily attaches to the controller with a new high density bus connection and a uniquely designed screw integrates the earth planes of all modules and controller together. Trio’s feature enable code system for axis activation allows the whole system to be scaled exactly to need.

The MC464 features a total of 64 axes in software. Any axes not assigned to built-in hardware can be used as a virtual axis. Every axis can be programmed to move using linear, circular or helical or spherical interpolation, electronic cams, linked axes and gearboxes. The power of the controller allows for multiple robotic transformations to run simultaneously.

Up to 64 Axes

MC464

The built-in Ethernet port allows programming and connection of common HMI and PLC protocols directly to the MC464. 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. Also available as an option is the industry standard IEC 61131-3 languages allowing fully functional PLC programming system.

Easy to use

MC464

A bright easy to read backlit display enables the controller status to be easily determined, whilst the single piece metal cast backplate provides an integrated earth chassis to improve noise rejection in the industrial environment.

Axis Configuration Key

Core functionality

CORE AXES – can be configured in software as pulse and direction outputs with stepper or servo drives. They can also be configured for incremental encoder feedback.

Core functionality is a set of ATYPEs (Axis TYPEs) that are available on all controllers. They are based on pulse outputs and incremental encoder feedback.

ATYPE Description
43 Pulse and direction output with enable output
45 Quadrature encoder output with enable output
63 Pulse and direction output with Z input
64 Quadrature encoder output with Z input
76 Incremental encoder with Z input
78 Pulse and direction with VFF_GAIN and enable output 1
Extended functionality

EXTENDED AXES – in addition to the Core functionality these axes can also be configured for absolute encoders and closed loop servos (requires voltage output).

Only axes marked as AS have an analogue output and can be used for closed loop control.
All Extended Axes can use these ATYPE's as feedback.
If you want to just use the feedback and not complete a closed loop servo system set SERVO = OFF

ATYPE Description
30 Analogue feedback Servo

46 Tamagawa absolute Servo
47 Endat absolute Servo
48 SSI absolute Servo
60 Pulse and direction feedback Servo with Z input

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.
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.
TextFileLoader
The file loading functionality of the Motion Coordinators allows files to be easily loaded into the controller memory or the SD card (when fitted). This allows programs written in text based languages such as G-Code and HPGL to be loaded to the controller where they can be parsed and executed by a TrioBASIC program. The transfer process is optimized to compress the file and reduce transfer times, or it can be set to stream the file into a FIFO buffer on the controller. This can help reduce overall machine cycle times when file sizes can be large and so making communication time significant.
