Euro 205 motion coordinatorTo meet demand from large OEM customers for an economical multi-axis Motion Coordinator with a small footprint, Trio has used advanced FPGA techniques to reduce the size of a four-axis servo/stepper controller to fit on a single Eurocard.

A fifth axis can be added on an expansion connector which will take standard Trio axis and communications daughter boards. User Programs are written in Trio’s established Multi-Tasking BASIC and applications can be developed using the Windows based Motion Perfect environment. Complex motion profiles are available and these can be linked to a master encoder input for Slaving, Gearing and Cams.

The unit has 24 opto-isolated digital I/O (16 inputs & 8 outputs) on board. Ultra fast hardware registration inputs are available on each axis for highly accurate control of print and packaging lines.

The I/O count can be expanded using Trio CANbus Digital I/O and Analogue Input modules. The CAN link also allows peer to peer communication between Motion Coordinators.

The Euro205 has two built in RS-232 ports. In addition, two further serial channels are available at TTL levels. External adapters are available to allow one of these serial ports to be linked to a full-duplex RS-485 channel and the second to be used to link to Trio Fibre Optic Network devices.

CAN 16-Out I/O Module (P317) p317The 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) p318The 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) p319The 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) p326The 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) p327The 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.
