Trio Motion Technology is a specialised designer of high performance motion control technology for automation applications, encompassing the control of moving parts of machines, robots or motors, with high precision. The main components involved typically include a motion controller, drives and motors or actuators. Trio Motion Technology has been manufacturing high-quality motion controllers branded Motion Coordinators since 1987. Their comprehensive range allows economical, flexible and seamless control of 1 to 128 axes of servo motors, stepper motors, piezo motors or hydraulic systems. Trio products can be found in virtually every servo and stepper application.


Motion Controller

The MC4N-ECAT is a high performance motion controller dedicated to controlling either servo or stepper axes via EtherCAT real time bus. Using an upgraded version of the 532MHz ARM 11 Processor, makes the MC4N-ECAT ideal for large scale multi-axes applications. Control of up to 32 Axes and 1024 I/O is possible. User programs can be written in Trio's multi-tasking TrioBASIC language using the powerful MotionPerfect development suite. Additionally IEC61131-3 programming language is available for softPLC functionality
