PICS terminations

The Renishaw product interconnection system (PICS) has been developed to standardise the format for real-time communications between Renishaw products and the CMM controller. PICS facilitates the integration of multiple probe interfaces and system controllers without the need for additional hardware or software overheads on the CMM controller.

NOTE: The order in which the system components are connected is important. In particular, the autochange controller (ACC2-2) should be the last in the chain before the CMM controller to allow it to disable probe damping (PDAMP) during the ACR1 set-up procedure.
