UCC2-2 legacy controller

UCC2-2 universal CMM controller system

UCC2-2
  • Smooth, fast and accurate blending of CMM motion control
  • Close integration between probing and the CMM optimises system
    measuring performance
  • Closed-loop, known part scanning includes cylinder, gasket and grid
    routines
  • Available with three levels of operating capability: touch-trigger probing,
    3-axis and 5-axis scanning
  • Integrated control of all Renishaw standard touch-trigger and scanning
    probe systems plus stylus changing
  • Full future product compatibility using plug-in daughtercards
  • I++ DME server application
  • UCC2-2 plus suitable servo power amplifier (SPA3 or SPA2-2) and MCU joystick, forms a comprehensive CMM control system
  • A sophisticated integrated motion controller that precisely controls CMM motion with comprehensive scanning capabilities and automated probe calibration
  • I++DME capability enabled
  • Operating through an SPA3 or SPA2-2, the CMM motion control is smooth, fast and accurate, permitting irregular contours to be easily followed thanks to the ‘move blending' software
  • Three levels of operating capability:
    touch-trigger probing and full 3-axis and 5-axis scanning capability
  • Housed in a standard rackmountable enclosure which is connected to the host PC via an ethernet link
  • Future hardware and software upgrades can be carried out easily, with function enhancements available by email or telephone support
  • Software enhancements are simply applied, as the control software is loaded at boot up
  • Additional new products require only plug-in daughtercards which will also include any appropriate calibration or set-up software
