EtherCAT motion controller complements Mclennan's custom build service

13 November 2018

Recently launched by Trio Motion and available with full support from Mclennan, the new Flex-6-Nano is a powerful integrated EtherCAT servo/stepper controller for high-speed synchronised motion and machine control.

With factory loaded modules for 2, 4, 8, 16, 32 or 64 axes and with additional motion expansion through add-on axis modules, the din-rail mounted system also takes care of machine I/O and supplementary motion through Trio’s modular Flexslice input, output and axis modules. The combination of factory loaded and field expandable motion, and I/O expansion, is a perfect fit for Mclennan’s customised motion systems design and build service.

As an advanced motion control technology distributor and manufacturer, Mclennan supplies and fully supports a wide range of precision motion control components from its distribution partners - and also has the capability to combine these products with its own design and build service for bespoke and turn-key motion sub-systems - for applications across industry and research.

The Flex-6 Nano is based on a dual core 1 GHz processor that offers EtherCAT cycle times as low as 125 microseconds, allowing exceptional motion and machine synchronisation. The multitasking operating system includes a comprehensive motion library with electronic gearbox, axis interpolation, maths functions, robotic kinematic transformations and more. Programming is made easy with the TrioBasic motion language or through IEC611-31.
