Calibration

Uses a 45 mm diameter sphere supplied with REVO.

Uses a 45 mm diameter sphere supplied with REVO.

Uses SFA supplied as part of SFP1 kit.

* All scans should be configured to allow an angle no greater than 45 degrees between the measured surface and the axis of the RSP2 V2 probe.

NOTES: For optimum metrology, it is essential that all probe and stylus holder changes are carried out automatically through the appropriate change ports.

Avoid touching the joint faces, as they will become contaminated. It is vital that the joint surfaces are protected and stay clean. Replace covers when not in use.

NOTE:

MCU5
The E-STOP on the manual control unit (MCU) removes all CMM motor power to the system.

MCU W
The MCU W is functionally identical to the MCU5 except for the additional STOP button on the membrane keypad. When this button is pressed, the CMM and motorised head is brought rapidly to a halt but the servos are kept running. This button is only functional when the controller is in automatic mode, i.e. running a DCC program.

The yellow STOP button removes power from the CMM axes, stops motion of motorised heads and locks the heads in their current position.

The E-STOP switch is hardwired to the UCC controller. When this switch is operated, all power to both the CMM axes and motorised head is removed.
