SP25M scanning probe system

SP25M scanning probe - a compact and versatile scanning system

SP25 on engine block

  • The world's most compact and versatile scanning probe system
  • Two sensors in one - a scanning probe and a touch-trigger probe using TP20 stylus modules
  • Rapid and repeatable automatic interchange between modular elements
  • Excellent scanning accuracy across an M3 stylus range of 20 mm to 400 mm (0.79 in to 15.75 in)
  • Low cost, entry-level kits available which can easily be expanded
  • Isolated optical metrology technology gives unrivalled measurement performance, even with long styli
  • Compatible with PH10M PLUS / PH10MQ PLUS articulating probe probe heads allowing access to many features with fewer styli
  • Ultra compact system at Ø25 mm (Ø0.98 in) for superior part accessibility
  • Compatible with probe extensions bars up to 100 mm long
  • Flexible change rack where ports can be easily configured to carry any system element
  • Bump-stop crash protection in the Z-axis, together with a detachable stylus holder for XY
    crash protection

Product tree

SP25M system components

SP25M probe body

Houses the optical metrology transducer system and integral autojoint.

Modules

Touch-trigger and scanning - a range of five scanning modules plus a touch-trigger adaptor module.

Stylus modules and holders

A range of stylus holders from 20 mm to 400 mm.

Interfaces and controllers

Direct integration with UCC S3 or via an AC3 card within the machine builder's controller.

Automation change racks

Flexible change racks (FCR25) can be free standing or fitted to the moduar rack system (MRS) for automated module and stylus changing.

SP25M videos

This movie clip shows the great flexibility of the SP25M system. Having just been used in touch-trigger mode, the probe moves to the compact, modular changing rack and stows the TP20 stylus module. It then stows the touch-trigger probe module and picks up the SM25-1 scanning module and SH25-1 stylus holder.

Effective stylus length range

(Always observe the specified stylus range for the scanning module being used. Use Renishaw's M3 range of styli)

SM25-1 + SH25-1 = EWL 20 mm - 50 mm (0.79 in - 1.97 in) using 20 mm - 50 mm stylus range

SM25-2 + SH25-2 / SH25-2A = EWL 50 mm - 105 mm (1.97 in - 4.14 in) using 20 mm - 75 mm stylus

SM25-3 + SH25-3 / SH25-3A = EWL 120 mm - 200 mm (4.73 in - 7.88 in) using 20 mm - 100 mm stylus

SM25-4 + SH25-4 / SH25-4A = EWL 220 mm - 400 mm (8.67 in - 15.75 in) using 20 mm - 200 mm stylus

SM25-5 + SH25-5 = EWL 20 mm - 100 mm (0.79 in - 3.94 in) using 20 mm - 100 mm stylus

Mounting

Multiwired autojoint - compatible with PH10M PLUS / PH10MQ PLUS and PH6M probe heads, extension bars and ACR1 / ACR3 sensor changers

Crash protection

 

±X, ±Y, -Z

Via break out of module or stylus holder

+Z

Via integral bump-stop design

Signal outputs

Non-linear and non-orthogonal analogue outputs - rate gain and resolution are not fixed

Power supply

+12 V (±5%), -12 V (+10% / +8%), +5% (+10% / -13%) dc at probe
