Trio Flex 6 Nano Motion Controller


Powerful, compact and flexible, the Flex-6 Nano is an integrated EtherCAT solution offering up to 64 Axes of motion. It is expandable through the matching Flexslice range of Input, Output and Axis modules.

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 EtherCAT Flexslice System allowing expansion of the system to include servo and stepper drives, I/O and other functionality that conforms to the EtherCAT standard.
