Stylus change port

SCP80

The SCP80 stylus changing port enables automation of SH80 interchange onto the SP80 probe. It does not require any electrical connection for operation, and it fits to the MRS / MRS2. This provides simple flexibility to incorporate as many ports as required, whilst optimising working volume. The SCP80 has a spring-loaded mechanism that is designed to ease the stylus holder away from the probe body thus reducing the pull-off force to less than 20 N during the change cycle.

For some stylus configurations the SCP80V may be required, refer to SCP80V stylus change port page for further detail.

SCP80V

The SCP80V stylus changing port enables automation of SH80 changing operation with the SP80H and long, rear orientated styli with SP80. It does not require any electrical connection for operation, and it fits to any standard extrusion. This provides simple flexibility to incorporate as many ports as required, whilst optimising working volume. The SCP80V has a spring-loaded mechanism that is designed to ease the stylus holder away from the probe body thus reducing the pull-off force to less than 20 N during the change cycle.

A Renishaw MRS system capable of mounting the SCP80V vertically for use with SP80H is not available. The mounting system should be provided by the OEM or end user.

When using SP80 with styli that point to the rear of the port the SCP80V should be used.
