Trio MC206X
MC206X Motion Coordinator

The MC206X Motion Coordinator is based on Trio’s high-performance 32-bit DSP technology, providing unprecedented computational speed, flexibility, and connectivity.

Advanced FPGA techniques enable 4 axes of stepper and servo circuitry plus a master encoder input to be enclosed in a compact DIN-rail mounted package.

An expansion connector is incorporated to add a fifth axis or any other optional Daughter Boards. Up to 8 axes may be provided using the SERCOS Daughter Board.

User programs are written in Trio’s established and easy to use multi-tasking BASIC language. The powerful Windows™ based MotionPerfect development software allows access to edit, debug and monitor programs in the MC206X. Complex motion such as cams, gears, linked axes, and interpolation is made easy with Trio’s comprehensive BASIC command set.

The MC206X has 16 opto-isolated digital I/O (8 in, 8 bi-directional). High speed hardware registration inputs are available for each axis where highly accurate control is required for applications such as print and packaging lines. The I/O count can be expanded using Trio CANbus digital and analogue modules.

Trio’s MC206X offers wide communications capability with 2 RS-232 serial ports, 1 RS-485 port, 1 TTL serial port, 1 USB port and 1 CAN channel as standard.
