THE MC664 IS TRIO’S HIGHEST PERFORMANCE AND MOST FLEXIBLE MOTION
COORDINATOR_ AND IS BASED ON A POWERFUL QUAD CORE CORTEX A9 1GHZ ARM
The MC664 and MC664-X 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
Using expansion modules the MC664 supports up to 64 networked digital
drives, 24 analogue 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 established multi-tasking TrioBASIC language using
the powerful 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
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
Available in single or quad core formats, the P862 MC664-X Quad Core
Motion Coordinator_ has 2 built-in ETHERCAT axes which can be upgraded
with the purchase of P914 Remote Axis FECs. The MC664-X is ideal for
high axis count machines and robotic applications
Each P914 doubles the available axes…
P862 + 1 x P914 = 4 Axes
P862 + 2 x P914 = 8 Axes
P862 + 3 x P914 = 16 Axes
P862 + 5 x P914 = 64 Axes
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.
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.
