Euro209

P159

Previous Generation : Suggested Alternative : Euro404 / 408

Not recommended for new projects!

The Motion Coordinator Euro209 is a 3U Eurocard stepper/servo positioner with the built-in ability to control up to 8 servo or stepper motors in any combination.

Euro209

Highlights

  • High performance, low cost Eurocard Motion Coordinator
  • Dedicated Coldfire ® communications co-processor
  • Designed for low-cost OEM volume applications
  • 1-8 Servo/stepper axes in any combination
  • Linear, circular and helical interpolation
  • Electronic clutches, gears and cams
  • Multi-tasking BASIC programming
  • Built-in CAN channel
  • Configurable using feature enable codes
  • Built-in opto-isolated inputs/outputs
  • Registration inputs

Programming

User programs are written in Trio’s established Multi-Tasking TrioBASIC and applications can be developed using the Windows based Motion Perfect environment. Complex motion profiles are easily programmed and these can be linked to a master encoder input for slaving, gearing and cams.

Communications

The ethernet port is controlled by a dedicated Coldfire® communications co-processor allowing fast reliable data communication between the Euro209 and PC and gives the ability to program multiple cards over an Ethernet LAN.

The Euro209 has one RS-232 port and one RS-485 built in that may be configured to run the MODBUS protocol for PLC or HMI interfacing. If the built-in CAN channel is not used for connecting I/O modules, it may optionally be used for CAN communications or as a DeviceNet Slave.

The Euro209 features a total of 16 axes in software. Any axes not having a hardware interface can be used as a “virtual” axis.

Products - CAN I/O Modules
CAN 16-Out I/O Module (P317)CAN
The Trio CAN16 Output module provides 256 distributed output channels at 24Vdc level. All points are short-circuit proof and completely isolated from the CANbus. P317 modules may be mixed on the same bus, with other types in the Trio CAN I/O range.
CAN 16-In I/O Module (P318)CAN
The Trio CAN16 Input module provides 256 distributed input channels at 24Vdc level. All input points are high level (24V in = ON) and completely isolated from the CANbus.
CAN16 I/O Module (P319)CAN
The Trio CAN16 Input/Output module provides 256 distributed bi-directional input/output channels at 24Vdc level. All input points are high level, (24V = ON) all outputs are short-circuit proof and the I/O is completely isolated from the CANbus.
CAN 8-In / 4-Out I/O Module (P326)CAN
The CAN Analogue I/O module provides a compact DIN rail mounted analogue input/output capability for Trio Motion Coordinators. Each module provides 8 channels of 12-bit (+/-10V) analogue inputs and 4 channels of 12-bit (+/-10V) analogue outputs.
CAN 8-Relay Module (P327)CAN
The Trio CAN8 Relay module provides 128 distributed low power relay channels at up to 30Vdc or 49Vac. All output points are Volt-free contacts and are completely isolated from the CANbus. P327 modules may be mixed on the same bus, with other types in the Trio CAN I/O range.

Software - Programming
Motion Perfect
Motion Perfect is designed to make setup, diagnostics, commissioning and using our range of Motion Coordinators as simple as possible. It provides the user with an easy to understand Windows based interface for rapid application development, controller configuration and monitoring of controller processes.
IEC 61131-3 Runtime Software (P877)
IEC 61131-3 standardises the programming language, the instruction sets and the handling and structuring of projects. As supplied, the IEC 61131 system will run programs for one hour after power-on, to allow engineers to try out their standard programs on the Motion Coordinator hardware. For continuous running, a software key (Feature Enable Code) must be bought for each Motion Coordinator that can run IEC 61131 programs.

Software - Support Apps
CAD2Motion
The program allows the user to create motion paths in a CAD package such as AutoCAD and convert them into code executable by a Trio Motion Coordinator.
AutoLoader
A compact, self-contained package designed to allow simple distribution of projects written using Motion Perfect. Simply add the project to the Autoloader folder, edit a script file to provide control of the loading sequence and send to the customer.
Trio MCLoader
The Trio MC Loader is a Windows ActiveX control which can load projects (produced with Motion Prefect) and programs onto a Trio Motion Coordinator. Communication with the Motion Cordinator can be via serial link, USB, Ethernet or PCI depending on the Motion Coordinator.
Trio PCMotion
PCMotion is an ActiveX component allowing direct connection to the Trio Motion Coordinator from a custom user application. It can be used to control any of the Motion Coordinator functionality as well as send text files down to the controller.
TextFileLoader
The file loading functionality of the Motion Coordinators allows files to be easily loaded into the controller memory or the SD card (when fitted). This allows programs written in text based languages such as G-Code and HPGL to be loaded to the controller where they can be parsed and executed by a TrioBASIC program. The transfer process is optimized to compress the file and reduce transfer times, or it can be set to stream the file into a FIFO buffer on the controller. This can help reduce overall machine cycle times when file sizes can be large and so making communication time significant.
