RSP3 probe change system

The REVO probe change system is designed to allow automatic REVO probe and stylus holder changing on a CMM. The primary purpose of the system is to improve flexibility with the ability to use and store stylus holders with different styli or stylus configurations.

For optimum metrology, REVO probes and stylus holders should be changed automatically using REVO change ports (RCP TC-2 and RCP2) or a flexible change rack (FCR25). These ports are mounted on the modular rack system (MRS2).

RCP TC-2

The RCP TC-2 is a thermally controlled port for changing RSP2 V2, RSP3 and SFP1 probes.

Dimensions

RCP TC-2 dimensions 

Key features of the RCP TC-2 are:

  • Maintains the probe at the operating temperature when not in use, for optimum metrology
  • Allows RSP2 V2, RSP3 and SFP1 probes to be rapidly interchanged automatically
  • Mounts on the MRS or MRS2 to allow multi-port systems to be created
  • Not to be used for changing stylus holders

RCP2

The RCP2 is configured to change RSP2 V2 stylus holders, SFP1 styli and RSH3-6 stylus holders.

Dimensions

RCP2 dimensions

Key features of the RCP2 are:

  • Allows RSP2 V2 stylus holders (RSH175 / 250 / 350 / 450 / 500), SFP1 styli (SFS-1 / 2) and RSH3-6 stylus holders (RSH3-6-600 / 700 / 800 and RSH3-6C-500 / 600) to be rapidly interchanged automatically
  • Mounts on the MRS or MRS2 to allow multi-port systems to be created
  • Not to be used for changing RSH3-1 / 2 / 3 / 4 stylus holders or REVO probes

FCR25

The FCR25 is a triple port unit designed to change SH25 and RSH3-1 / 2 / 3 / 4 stylus holders.  A PA25-SH adaptor is used to enable a port to change SH25 stylus holders, while a PA25-RSH3 adaptor is used for changing RSH3-1 / 2 / 3 / 4 stylus holders.

Dimensions

FCR25 dimensions Key features of the FCR25 are:

  • FCR25 allows RSH3-1 / 2 / 3 / 4 and SH25 elements to be rapidly interchanged automatically
  • Each FCR25 unit has 3 ports
  • Mounts on the MRS or MRS2 to allow multi-port systems to be created
  • FCRH25 stand-off plate is required in all REVO installations

RSP3-1 / 2 / 3 / 4

NOTE: Please observe the orientation of the probe in the RCP TC-2.

NOTE: The stylus tool is used to keep the port lid open during calibration. It must be removed for normal operation.
