DX4

AC Servo Drive

Introducing Trio's solutions with the new DX4 servo drives, our all new drive and motor packages that provide performance and dependability, optimised in every detail to do more with less.

Everything you need, nothing more

The DX4 comes in 3 frame sizes with power ratings from 50W to 3kW. Designed to be matched with the MX motors and accessories it offers a high-speed, high-precision machine solution.

The DX4 is designed to work seamlessly with Trio's EtherCAT controllers and be fully integrated into Trio’s application development tool, Motion Perfect allowing complete machine configuration from one tool; commissioning, diagnostics and programming.

With a focus on ease of use, the DX4 minimises setup time allowing you to focus on your application.

Cable Key

The XX at the end of the CABLE code represents the cable length:
E.g.; EC3P-B1118-12 = 12 metre cable
valid lengths are: 1M5, 03, 05, 08, 10, 12, 15, 20
All lengths are in Metres

Note:

For flexible cables option, add -RX as a suffix.  These cables are suitable for use in drag chains.
E.g.; EC3P-B1118-12RX = 12 metre flexible cable
