SFP1 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, SFP1 probes and stylus holders should be changed automatically using REVO change ports (RCP TC-2 and RCP2). 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-#) and RSH3-6 stylus holders (RSH3-6#) 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

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. SFP1 styli should not be manually fitted to the RCP2.

SFP1 and SFS-#

The RCP TC-2 (thermally controlled REVO change port) is used for changing SFP1, whereas the RCP2 is configured to change SFP1 styli (SFS-1 and SFS-2).

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