OPI 6 legacy interface

OPI 6

OPI6

The interface allows rapid integration onto a CMM. It automatically identifies and provides power to the OTP6M probe. It includes all the necessary electronics to condition the output signals from both standard touch-trigger probes and the OTP6M probe. If another multiwired probe is fitted the OIP 6 will route signals to an appropriate Renishaw interface.

The OPI 6 have the capability of PICS (Renishaw's product interconnection system) or SSR outputs and allows the user to remotely select the 1D or 3D modes of operation.

*** When an error occurs this output is 5 V (at all other times 0 V)

13  Version number label

This label indicates the modification level of the OPI 6. This label may be relevant when integration with other systems is under consideration and should always be quoted when contacting Renishaw for help or service.

14  Interface: 15-pin high-density D type socket

Provides connection between the OPI 6 and one other Renishaw multiwire probe interface via a PL101 cable.

15  Probe head: 15-pin high-density D type socket

This socket accepts the multiwired cable from the PH10M / PH6M probe heads.

16  Mains power IEC socket

The OPI 6 incorporates automatic voltage selection.
