UCC T5

  • UCC T5CMM controller for 5-axis touch-trigger motion and head control - PH20 only
  • Must be used in conjunction with a Renishaw SPA3 amplifier
  • Uses an external power supply and manages full control of the PH20 head, CMM and probe signals and communicates with the CMM's computer
  • Replaces the UCC2-2 and 5-axis daughtercard for PH20 installations
  • Has integral thermal error compensation (TEC) with support for 16 channels of
    temperature compensation
  • Setup and commissioning should be completed through Renishaw's UCCassist-2 software

Installation and user's guides

  • Installation guide: UCC T5

    The UCC T5 must be used in conjuction with a Renishaw SPA3. Setup and commisioning should be completed through Renishaw's UCCassist-2 software. The UCC T5 has replaced the UCC2 and 5-axis daughtercard. It also replaces the TEC card and provides support for 16 channels of temperature compensation. The UCC T5 uses an external power supply and manges full control of the PH20 head, CMM and probe signals and communicates with the CMM's computer.
