Manual control systems description

MCU5-2

The manual control unit is a CMM joystick controller designed for use with Renishaw's range of UCC controllers.  It includes the functionality of both the Renishaw standard UCC joystick interface and Renishaw PHC10 hand control unit (HCU).

The MCU5-2 is a development of the MCU5 joystick, with new buttons and new functionality.

The MCU5-2 has been developed for use with Renishaw's REVO and PH20 systems, providing the ability to move the CMM in the probe and stylus axis.

NOTE: The MCU5-2 is not compatible with UCC1 and requires UCCsuite 4.9 or later.

MCU W-2

The wireless manual control unit (MCU W-2) is a CMM joystick designed for use with Renishaw's range of UCC controllers.  Based on the MCU5-2 joystick design, the MCU W-2 uses modern battery technology and Bluetooth® radio modules to provide an effective wireless joystick with a maximum range of 25 m and over eight hours between battery changes.  A spare battery and an automatic charger are included in the joystick docking cradle.

NOTE:  MCU W-2 is not compatible with UCC1 and requires UCCsuite 4.9 or later.
