Installation and connection details

Dimensions

 Width: 440 mm (17.3 in) Depth: 180 mm (7.1 in) Height: 44 mm (1.7 in) Weight: 2.1 kg (4 lb 10 oz)

UCC T3 PLUS or UCC S3 (CMM controller) can either be free standing or used in a 19 inch rack system.

CAUTION: Ensure the controller is disconnected from the power supply during installation.

Stand-alone installation

The CMM controller unit draws air from the right hand side when viewed from the front and expels air out of the left hand side.  A minimum clearance gap of 10 mm is necessary between the sides of the unit and any potential obstruction.

Mounting in a 19 inch rack

The rack mounting kit (Renishaw part number A-5518-0005) contains two brackets and four M5 × 6 mm screws. Assemble the brackets to the CMM controller as shown below:

NOTE: For maximum immunity from electrical noise, Renishaw recommends that:

  1. Mating shells connectors must be metal bodied.
  2. The overall cable screen is continuous and connected to the system ground on the user's equipment through the bodies of the connectors.

 

CAUTION:  For correct system function, the maximum overall single core resistance between the head and the controller MUST be less than 2.5 ohm.

The thermistors for each channel connect between the CH input and CH return pins. The return signals are NOT zero volts and MUST NOT be connected to any zero volt signal, GND or screen. Do not connect the return signals to anything else apart from the thermistor !

NOTE: For more information regarding the set up and usage of axis and work piece sensors, please read the temperature compensation page of this installation guide.

PICS interface configuration

Configuration of the PICS (product interconnection system) is via UCCassist-2.

PICS

Renishaw's PICS allows a standard method of connection for real-time signals used by current Renishaw products.

Please refer to the PICS installation guide (Renishaw part number H-1000-5000) for further information when interfaces are fitted.

NOTE: TP7 is not supported with this product.

Stylus change rack (SCR) connector

The SCR200 stylus change rack is connected to the controller via a 6 pin miniature DIN socket. The pin numbers are illustrated and their functions are shown in the table.
