TRIO – Flex-6 Nano

The Flex-6 Nano is a powerful DIN rail mounted stand-alone flexible and compact Motion Coordinator. Its on board memory can be expanded to 32 GByte using a Micro SD card.

The Flex-6 Nano can be used as a stand-alone controller or can “plug” straight into our EtherCATFlexslice System allowing expansion of the system to include servo and stepper drives, I/O and other functionality that conforms to the EtherCAT standard.

Trio’s Flexslice input/output modules provide a robust, high speed and flexible solution for both motion control and general automation. EtherCAT cycle times down to 125μsecs are supported and the bus coupler uses EBUS technology to bring all the sub-modules on to the EtherCAT network with no degradation in performance.

EtherCAT slave nodes (Flexslice Modules) are connected via the Flexslice EBUS and the EtherCAT connector. Total slave connections can be up to 128 nodes including I/O and complex devices.

More “stations” (EtherCAT linked blocks of Flexslice Modules) can be added to the network using the second EtherCAT port on the P600 to connect to one or more P366 Flexslice Couplers.
