Trio MC4N-RTEX Mini Master

£ POA

The MC4N-RTEX extends the MC4N range of Motion Coordinators for networked drives which started with the MC4N-ECAT. It is dedicated to running remote servo drives via Panasonic's RTEX Real Time EXpress automation bus. It is based on an up-rated version of the 532MHz ARM processor with VFP3 and is available with configurations from 2 to 32 axes making it ideal for high axis count machines or robotic applications.

RTEX

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-RTEX. The bright easy to read backlit display enables the controller status to be easily determined

Easy to use

The MC4N-RTEX supports up to 32 axes of motion with 64 bit integer position registers for ultra precise axis resolution. RTEX slave drives can be connected and run in cyclic synchronous position, speed or torque modes provided these are supported by the drive.

Expandable

Versions of the MC4N-RTEX are available for 2, 4, 8, 16 and 32 motor axes. All versions feature 32 software axes any of which may be used as virtual axes if not assigned to RTEX hardware. Every axis can be programmed to move using linear, circular or helical or spherical interpolation, electronic cams, linked axes and gearboxes. The power of the controller allows for multiple robotic transformations to run simultaneously. I/O can be connected via the CAN port on top the MC4N making expansion quick and easy.

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.
