SCR600 insert

When using SCR600 with any of the range of SP600 probes with an aquablast finish it is necessary to fit inserts to the SCR600 otherwise problems may occur with the port lids staying open after a stylus change.

Description

Any SCR600 manufactured prior to 2000 does not have the slots to allow for this insert to be fitted.  If you do have a rack that is pre 2000 then you will need to contact your local Renishaw service centre for a free of charge RBE replacement. The image below shows a top elevation of an SCR600 manufactured before and after 2000.

All new SCR600 racks shipped from 1st April will be shipped with these inserts fitted as standard.

Requirements

For customers that replace their SP600 probe via the RBE route we will supply the inserts with each RBE probe.  Installation instructions will be supplied in the user guide that will also be supplied with the RBE probe. 

Instructions for retrofitting SCR600 mounting plate inserts

Hold down port lids 1 and 2 and insert the mounting plate into the slot shown as below. Ensure that the mounting plate is fully inserted into the slot. Hold down port lids 3 and 4 and repeat the process. Please note that the middle slot on the SCR600 does not require a mounting plate to be inserted.
