Trio MC4N-ECAT Mini Master

£ POA

The MC4N is a high performance Motion Coordinator which is dedicated to running remote servo and stepper drives via the EtherCAT real time automation bus. It is based on an up-rated version of the 532MHz ARM 11 processor which makes it ideal for high axis count machines or robotic applications.

Plug and Play

The P900 has 2 built-in EtherCAT axes which can be user upgraded with the purchase of P912 Remote Axis FECs.

Each P912 doubles the available axes, i.e:

P900 + 1 x P912 = 4 Remote Axes

P900 + 2 x P912 = 8 Remote Axes

P900 + 3 x P912 = 16 Remote Axes

P900 + 4 x P912 = 32 Remote Axes

Easy to use

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 industrial environment.

Familiar Tools

The built-in Ethernet port allows programming and connection of common PLC and HMI protocols, including the Trio Uniplay range of HMIs, directly to the MC4N. User programs can be written in Trio’s established multi-tasking TrioBASIC language using the powerful Motion Perfect v4 application development software making complex motion easy. The industry standard IEC 61131-3 languages are available as an option, allowing a fully functional PLC programming system.

SMS Machine Automation and Trio Motion


We are a UK Distributor for Trio products and have successfully used their products CAN capabilities to replace obsolete ABB e100 units for a number of machine builders, allowing them to make only minor modifications to design rather than make sweeping changes updating from a motion controller to a PLC based solution.
