The Motion Coordinator
Euro209 is a 3U Eurocard stepper/servo positioner with the built-in
ability to control up to 8 servo or stepper motors in any combination.
In addition a single
Trio Daughter Board may be fitted to allow the control of an additional
axis, communications channel or a digital drive interface allowing up to
User programs are
written in Trio’s established Multi-Tasking BASIC and applications can
be developed using the Windows based MotionPerfect environment.
Complex motion profiles
are easily programmed and these can be linked to a master encoder input
for slaving, gearing and cams.
The Ethernet port is
controlled by a dedicated Coldfire® communications co-processor allowing
fast reliable data communication between the Euro 209 and PC and gives
the ability to program multiple cards over an Ethernet LAN.
The Euro209 has one
RS-232 port and one RS-485 built in that may be configured to run the
MODBUS protocol for PLC or HMI interfacing. If the built-in CAN channel
is not used for connecting I/O modules, it may optionally be used for
CAN communications or as a DeviceNet Slave.
USB and Profibus
daughter boards may be fitted to provide additional communications
The Euro209 features a
total of 16 axes in software. Any axes not having a hardware interface
can be used as a “virtual” axis.
