MOTION CONTROL: The MC464, the latest and most advanced addition to Trio’s Motion Coordinator family, is a multi-axis motion and machine controller featuring a high-performance 64-bit processor in a modular design. It provides OEMs and automation system integrators with a flexible choice of servo and stepper drive interfacing combined with a wide selection of Fieldbus protocols - plus programming flexibility that includes the company’s Trio BASIC or industry-standard IEC 61131 runtime. The MC464 features a 64 bit, 400 MHz MIPS processor with 200 Mhz DDR memory, a 64-bit integer position register and an extremely fast servo loop update rate capability. Axis expansion modules include two Flexible Axis Interfaces for four or eight axes with 16-bit DAC outputs and 6 Mhz encoder feedback. Flexible Axis Interfaces can be combined to provide up to 24 independently configured discrete wired axes for linear or rotary servo motor drives, open loop steppers, hydraulic and piezoelectric drives, with support for SSI and EnDat absolute encoders.
Some of our culture's most enduring robots appeared in the 80s. The Aliens series produced another evil android, and we saw light robot fare in the form of Short Circuit. Two of the great robots of all time also showed up: The Terminator and RoboCop.
