MC4N-Mini Ethercat MasterMotion Coordinator
P900 : 2 Axis
P901 : 4 Axis
P902 : 8 Axis
P903 : 16 Axis
P904 : 32 Axis

Axes are specified using three terms:

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.
EXTENDED AXES – in addition to the Core functionality these axes can also be configured for SSI, Tamagawa or EnDat absolute encoders.
EXTENDED AXES + AS AXES - In addition to Extended Axes; analogue 'closed loop' Servo using built-in ±10V analogue output.

The MC4N is a new concept in high performance Motion Coordinators which is dedicated to running remote servo and stepper drives via the EtherCAT real time automation bus. It is based on an up-rated version of the 532MHz ARM 11 processor which makes it ideal for high axis count machines or robotic applications.

MC4N

The MC4N supports up to 32 axes of motion with 64 bit integer position registers for ultra precise axis resolution. EtherCAT slave drives and I/O can be connected and run in cyclic synchronous position, speed or torque modes provided these are supported by the drive.

Programming the MC4N is identical to using traditional analogue axes with the addition of being able to set up drives and process alarms over the EtherCAT bus. With everything programmed from one place, machine control has never been so simple.

The built-in Ethernet port allows programming and connection of common PLC and HMI protocols, including the Trio Uniplay range of HMIs, directly to the MC4N. User programs can be written in Trio’s established multi-tasking TrioBASIC language using the powerful Motion Perfect v3 application development software making complex motion easy. The industry standard IEC 61131-3 languages are available as an option, allowing a fully functional PLC programming system.

Versions of the MC4N are available for 2, 4, 8, 16 and 32 motor axes. All versions feature 32 software axes any of which may be used as virtual axes if not assigned to EtherCAT hardware. 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.

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

CAN 16-In I/O Module (P318) p318The Trio CAN16 In Digital 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 Digital 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.
UNIPLAY HMI (P483, P484) uniplayTrio’s unique UNIPLAY HMI system is a revolutionary way to make operator interfaces better, easier and more secure! The UNIPLAY series boasts a 7" and 10" colour display.
IEC 61131-3 Runtime Software (P877) IEC 61131-3 standardises the programming language, the instruction sets and the handling and structuring of projects. This gives the ability to run programs generated by suitable programming tools using any of the 4 supported standards. As supplied, the IEC 61131 system will run programs for one hour after power-on, to allow engineers to try out their standard programs on the Motion Coordinator hardware. For continuous running, a FREE software key (Feature Enable Code) must be downloaded from the Trio E-Store.
Kinematic Runtime FEC (P750) The P750 Robot Kinematic Runtime FEC enables the more complex FRAME transformations which enable easy programming of various types of robot Including SCARA and Delta.
