Default Triton TRA001 and the M-Power CRB7 - Will they work together?

I have a Triton TRA001. You can see it here....

Triton Tools | Routers | TRA001 | Dual Mode Precision Plunge Router 2400W

I want to use it with the M-Power CRB7. This one...
M.POWER's Combination Router Base - CRB7 MK3

Can this be done? To work, the router needs to have router base rod drillings, and from the looks of it, this router does not have them.

... am I right to assume the CRB7 will not work?

From what I can see on the Triton product page, I don't think the CRB7 will work. The router needs to be able to slide on rails.

I agree with Oliver.

This is one reason why so many of us have multiple routers.

I agree. You have to have holes for guide rods in the router for the CRB7 to work.

M Power offers 4 sizes of rods. The spacing between the rods and the height of the rods is adjustable(the smaller 2 sizes of rods come with the CRB7) so any router that has the guide rod holes, no matter what the size or spacing, can be used with the CRB7. A router that does not have the guide rod holes cannot be used with the CRB7, unless you build a thick base for the router and drill holes through it for the guide rods. Locking screws to lock the router position to the rods would also be necessary. It's doable, but much easier to just use a different router.
