MC464 Motion Coordinator
P860

CORE AXES – can be configured in software as pulse and direction outputs to stepper or servo drives. They can also be configured for incremental encoder feedback or simulated encoder output.
NETWORK AXES – communicate to the drives over a digital drive network. Some axes are included with the module but require Remote feature codes to enable more axes.

The MC464 supports up to 64 axes of motion with 64 bit integer position registers for ultra precise axis resolution. Using expansion modules the MC464 supports up to 64 networked digital drives, 24 analogue servo drives, 24 pulse and direction drives and 64 absolute and incremental encoders in any combination.

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 powerfulMotion 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.

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.

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.

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.

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
44 Incremental encoder Servo with Z input
46 Tamagawa absolute Servo
47 Endat absolute Servo
48 SSI absolute Servo
60 Pulse and direction feedback Servo with Z input
77 Incremental encoder Servo with enable output
