SPA2-2 system components

The SPA2-2 kits contain the necessary components required to connect the SPA2-2 with either the UCC2 or UCClite-2 controller system to a CMM installation.

Motor connectors (supplied)

Each kit contains three motor connectors which are appropriate for DC motor output from the SPA2-2.

NOTE: This connector is of the solder bucket variety, it is recommended that they are fitted to the CMM wiring by a competent technician or engineer, and that sleeving is used for all connections to reduce the possibility of short circuits.

Each of the three connector assemblies consist of the following:

  • 1 off metal backshell
  • 1 off 7W2 power and signal D-type plug
  • 2 off power pins

Emergency stop and reset switch (supplied)

The SPA2-2 and UCC2 control system is capable of providing category 2 * emergency stop system safety level. The SPA2-2 and UCClite-2 is capable of providing a category B emergency stop. However, this is subject to the machine manufacturers / installers method of integration and their risk assessment.

Each kit contains one 9-way D-type socket that permits the installer to add
additional emergency stop devices to the emergency stop system integrated within the SPA2-2.

 NOTE: Emergency stop switches (where required by the manufacturer or installer's risk assessment) must comply with the requirements of standards UL1054/EN60947.

This connector is of the solder bucket variety. It is recommended that they are fitted to the CMM wiring by a competent technician or engineer, and that sleeving is used for all connections to reduce the possibility of short circuits. 

* Category 2 to EN954-1:1996 (ISO13849-1:1999).

The SPA2-2 range of products is capable of being configured to enable support of a wide range of motor and tacho feedback giving compatibility with most machine constructions.

SPA2-2 DC motor connector kit

This kit contains the motor output connection cards to permit three DC motors to be connected to the SPA2-2 unit. Normally these would be supplied with the SPA unit and do not need to be ordered separately, unless you are converting an existing system.

SPA2-2 4th axis interface card kit

This kit contains the optional 4th axis interface card for the SPA2-2 system. This permits connection of an additional machine axis to the SPA2-2 when using the UCC2 controller.

SPA2 MCU SPA2-2

NOTE: Each SPA2-2 unit can only support one 4th axis interface card. 

This kit contains the following components:

  • 1 off 4th axis interface card
  • 1 off internal connection signal loom
  • 1 off internal connection power loom
  • 4th axis hardware mounting kit
  • 1 off mating motor connector for machine wiring

Dual SPA2-2 integration kit

This cable kit is designed to permit a high power solution for CMM installations where the power capacity of a single SPA2-2 will not address the requirements for the machine.

This system enables two SPA2-2 units to be combined as a single system and configured to drive the CMM installation. For example; if required, a single SPA2-2 can power a single axis, or if in a dual drive configuration the two dual axis motors can be supplied from separate SPA2-2 units and the other two axes to be integrated such that each SPA2-2 drives two motors.

This kit contains the following component:

  • 1 off UCC2 to dual SPA2-2 emergency stop connection cable

SPA 2-2 DC connector kit

This kit has been designed to assist in the connection of either a UCC2 or UCClite and SPA2-2 to a machine installation.

This kit contains the following components:

  • 3 off 7W2 motor connectors including backshells to permit connection of the motor and analogue tacho signals to the SPA2-2
  • 1 off 9-way D connector including backshell to permit the connection of an external emergency stop device to the Renishaw emergency stop chain
