PHC10-3 PLUS probe head controller

PH10 PLUS heads must be used in conjunction with either the PHC10-3 PLUS controller or the UCC (universal CMM controller).

PHC10-3 PLUS uses an external power supply for the head, manages all head functions and communicates via a suitable interface with the CMM computer.

A separate probe interface is required for probe signal conditioning when using the PHC10-3 PLUS. If using the UCC, the PHC1050 daughtercard takes its power from the host unit.
