  • High performance, low cost 1-4 axis Eurocard Motion Coordinator
  • Designed for low-cost OEM volume applications
  • 1-4 Servo/stepper axes in any combination
  • Multi-tasking TrioBASIC programming
  • Built-in CAN channel

EURO205XTo meet demand from large OEM customers for an economical multi-axis Motion Coordinator with a small footprint.

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. 4 Fast hardware registration inputs are available on each axis for highly accurate control of print and packaging lines. 2 x 12 bit analogue input channels are provided on the board.

The I/O count can be expanded using Trio CANbus Digital I/O and Analog Input modules. The CANbus port also supports DeviceNet and CanOpen protocols. The Euro205x has two built in RS-232 ports. In addition, a full-duplex RS-485 channel is provided and a further serial channel is available at TTL levels.

An external adapter can be used to allow the TTL level serial port 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.
