Stylus holders

SH80
SH80 docking arrangements
SH80 markings
  • A detachable stylus holder located onto the probe body using a repeatable magnetic kinematic joint
  • Provides rapid and automatic interchange between stylus configurations thus enabling optimisation of measuring solutions to suit the application whilst maintaining system accuracy
  • Incorporates a 5-way cube for attachment of M5 styli
  • The stylus mount cube may be rotated by loosening a grub screw to enable correct rotational positioning of the stylus arrangement
  • Automatically removed and replaced on the probe body by using a SCP80 / V mounted on an MRS or suitable extrusion
  • Can dock into an SCP80 port aligned with any of the four sides of the SP80 probe meaning that the SCP80 / V can be positioned to the rear, front, left or right of the CMM, or any combination of these
SH80K

 SH80K

  • Supplied as a standard item with each probe
  • A stylus holder with a kinematic location ball that allows the SP80 and SP80H to be powered off / on without needing to rehome the probe (needs the SH80K to be fitted before the power is switched off)
  • The stylus ball locates on a special kinematic screw that is fitted to the probe body
  • It is possible to use SH80K with earlier versions of SP80 as the kinematic screw can be retrofitted to the probe body

SP80 stylus change racks and accessories

SCP80 stylus change port

  • Docking port for SH80 stylus holder - mounted on modular rack system (MRS)
  • The SCP80 has a spring loaded mechanism that is designed to ease the stylus holders away from the probe body
  • The SP80 pull-off force is less than 20 N
Modular rack system (MRS2)
  • A versatile probe and stylus changing solution for a wide range of Renishaw sensors
  • Available in a variety of leg and rail lengths to allow it to be configured to various applications
  • Additional rails can be added to MRS2 to create multi-tier racks in instances where CMM working volume is at a premium or there is a need to carry large numbers of probes and styli

SCP80V stylus change port

  • Docking port for SH80 stylus holder for use in the vertical orientation
  • Designed to be mounted onto an extrusion based rack provided by the CMM builder
  • Same spring loaded mechanism to ease the SH80 away from the probe body, but due to the different mounting orientation a higher spring force is required
  • The higher spring force means that SCP80V can also be fitted to the MRS system alongside the SCP80 to hold SH80s that have styli configurations requiring the stylus to point through the back of the rack port

Stylus holder removal tool

  • A removal tool for manually removing the SH80K and SH80 from either the SP80 and SP80H

SP80 interfaces

CC6 counter card

  • A PCI counter card which accepts RS422 scale output (typically from the Renishaw IU80 interpolator unit) and determines the {x,y,z} deflection of the SP80 probe
  • Data is then integrated with the machine position to determine the surface location
  • Suitable for PCs equipped with full size PCI expansion slots

IU80 interpolator unit

  • A boxed interface unit designed to condition the SP80 probe outputs into the industry-standard EIA RS422 quadrature scale output format
  • Signals can then be readily accepted by CMM controllers
  • Can be used with the Renishaw CC6 counter card, or with counter circuitry designed by the machine builder

SP80 UCC daughtercard

  • A plug-in card for the UCC that operates the SP80 scanning probe
OEM design
  • A counter card and interpolator unit designed by the machine builder

SP80 quill connection options (suitable for both SP80 and SP80H)

KM80 quill mount plate

  • A simple, repeatable attachment between the SP80 scanning probe and the CMM quill
  • Attached to the quill using four bolts and is designed to suit M4 or M3 quill attachment screws
KM6080 quill mount adaptor plate
  • Enables the SP80 to be adapted to suit CMMs with 60 mm square quills
  • Not available as a standard product and must be quoted through Renishaw's Custom Design Service
SM80 shank mount
  • As KM80 but with a shank mount to the CMM (non-preferred method)
  • SM80 shank mounts are not available as standard products and must be quoted through Renishaw's Custom Design Service

PHA3 and PHA80

  • Adaptor plates for rapid interchange between PH10MQ PLUS (using PHA3) and SP80 (using PHA80) on the same CMM

Cables

  • Interconnection cables integrating the SP80 and SP80H scanning probe to a CMM

Isolated optical metrology system

SP80
  • Readheads for each axis are fitted to the body of the probe
  • Light is reflected from the moving cube onto the readhead
  • System measures deflection of the whole mechanism
  • Detects sources of variable error such as thermal and dynamic effects
  • Any inter-axis error caused by arc motion of parallel acting springs is directly measured by the sensor system
  • System has no moving wire connections

† Probes with displacement sensors mounted to stacked axes suffer from latency under changing inertial loads and cannot detect thermal growth in their mechanisms.

SP80H specification

Stylus carrying capability

Due to the different orientation of the kinematics problems can occur when trying to support heavy styli on SP80H. Failure to reseat properly after the kinematics have been reseated may be observed with styli that have a moment at the stylus root greater than 200 g at 200 mm.

A graph representing a safe working moment range is shown below; this is based upon stylus weight and centre of gravity (COG) distance from the stylus root. It is advised that where possible customers should try and use styli configurations for SP80H that fall within these guidelines.
