The MC664 and MC664-X motion coordinators from Trio feature a total of 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.
Using expansion modules the MC664 supports up to 64 networked digital drives, 24 analog servo drives, 25 pulse and direction drives and 25 absolute and incremental encoders.
Every axis can be programmed to move using linear, circular or helical or spherical interpolation, electronic cams, linked axes and gearboxes. The quad core 1GHz processing power allows for multiple robotic transformations to run simultaneously.
The built-in Ethernet port allows programming and connection of common HMI and PLC protocols directly to the MC664. User programs can be written in Trio’s multi-tasking TrioBASIC language using Motion Perfect application development software making complex motion easy. Also available as an option are the industry standard IEC 61131-3 languages allowing a fully functional PLC programming system.
A bright easy to read backlit display enables the controller status to be easily determined, while the single piece metal cast backplate provides an integrated earth chassis to improve noise rejection in the industrial environment.
Available in single or quad-core formats, the P862 MC664-X Quad Core Motion Coordinator has 2 built-in EtherCAT axes that can be upgraded with the purchase of P914 Remote Axis FECs. The MC664-X is ideal for high axis count machines and robotic applications.
The P861 MC664 Single Core Motion Coordinator is a “drop-in” replacement for its predecessor the MC464. The MC664 has a built-in EtherCAT port but no axes are enabled by default.
