The Trio Robot Programming System or TrioRPS, is an open and adaptable package of tools and software that offers complete control and management of your robot systems.
The TrioRPS is a sophisticated package of tools and software that can be adapted to different robot manufacturers requirements. The TrioRPS allows users the choice of using a programming pendant for simple jobs or stepping up to use a laptop PC for more complex jobs. Many applications can use a mix of both to reduce programming time and optimise productivity.
The Robot Programming System components include:
Recommended Motion Coordinators:
MC4N, MC664, MC508, PC-MCAT 64
Trio’s flexible multi-tasking BASIC is widely used for rapid development of industrial motion applications. TrioBASIC-R (Robotics) adds:
MOVEJ, MOVEL and MOVECRobotic move types with definition of move, target, speed, precision, tool and object frame in a single instruction line
TOOL_OFFSETtools can be switched in real time to allow use of an auto tool exchanger
The Kinematics transformations package is configurable for the majority of robot mechanism types.
The RPS kinematics package covers most of the commonly used mechanism types and can easily be extended for new types. Delta, SCARA plus 5DOF and 6DOF anthropomorphic robots can effectively be programmed in XYZ world, tool and user coordinates. This allows users to focus on their application in a user friendly way and not be concerned with the algorithms being performed.
For robots with higher degrees of freedom, the RPS kinematics package allows the orientation of tools to be defined and controlled during moves. This means that as well as placing a tool to a point in space, the direction can also be defined. The mathematics and joint angles are handled in the controller.
The 3D Visualization tool, available in Motion Perfect v4, enables simulation of Machine Motion, using an externally generated 3D model which can be synchronized with the motion program. This tool can simulate realistic movement sequences on a PC in real time. In this way, movement sequences can be tested and optimized safely.
Once the 3D model has been created in the 3D creation package of your choice, it can be exported and placed into the 3D environment within Motion Perfect v4 and panned, zoomed and rotated with ease while the robot program is running. Each joint and link can be interrogated to find its position in 3D space.
The Teach Programming System allows programming the robot in a managed and safe environment, using a real or virtual system.
The pendant is based around Trio’s UNIPLAY HMI and can be used as a “real” or “virtual” on-screen pendant. The system includes extensive software and preconfigured motion control functions, which permit the controlling of all standard types of robot with reduced development time.
The system allows the user to:
