New plug-in module controls up to four servo axis
|go to TRIO site|
A new plug-in module from Metronix is capable of controlling up to four coordinated servo axis from the ARS 2000 servo drive.
The MC 2000 module, available in the UK from Motor Technology, is simply inserted into an ARS 2000 servo drive where it acts as a master capable of controlling up to three additional servo drive slaves via CANopen DSP402.
An external encoder can be
connected and software configured as an additional axis for
the MC 2000.
The MC 2000 is easily
programmable using a PC with the established Motion Perfect
software from Trio Motion. It delivers fast cycle times of
one millisecond with up to four servo axis and high-speed
sample input for fast measuring and interpretation of actual
The MC 2000 is suitable for a
wide range of applications where complex motion control is
required such as electronic cam drives and gears, joint
axis, point-to-point positioning and several types of
A big advantage is the reduced space required and the elimination of a majority of the wiring between servo drive and the motion controller, saving design-in and installation time as well as connector and cable costs.
