TEC input 

The REVO-2 head and CMM system are operated through UCCserver which uses I++DME command protocol to communicate between the system application software and the UCC S5.

Full 5-axis scanning capability is achieved through interaction between the UCC S5, the REVO-2 and the SPA3, to co-ordinate all the motion and metrology aspects across the three CMM axes and the two head axes.
