The Flex-6 Nano is a compact,
integrated EtherCAT solution offering
up to 64 Axes of motion. The on-board
memory can be boosted to 32 GByte
with the addition a micro SD card.
The Flex-6 Nano "plugs" straight into our Flexslice System removing the need for the EtherCAT coupler (P366). Trio’s Flexslice input/output system 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.
The Flexslice system makes available a selection of digital and analogue I/O terminals as well as motion modules with pulse + direction outputs designed for precise positioning of stepper and servo motors via suitable drive technology.
The digital I/O modules have high-speed functionality. In addition, analogue modules and axis modules may be fitted to make a superbly tailored system that can be placed remotely from the master if needed.
All Flexslice modules support automatic addressing with the master to automatically detect and configure the modules on startup. The bus coupler can support up to 16 input/output modules which have a positive mechanical lock and bus connector, making a reliable EBUS connection through the backplane. The complete assembly can be DIN rail mounted.
