About TP1S / TP1SM

TP1S system configurationThe TP1S/TP1SM is a 1 inch diameter, shank mounted probe that is ideal for manual CMMs due to its robust design and large overtravel range. The probe signal is carried to the CMM via an external cable, and the probe has an adjustable stylus force to help optimise its performance. It has an M3 stylus mount and can carry a wide range of styli.

The TP1S system comprises the TP1S probe and a suitable interface; PI 4-2, PI 7-2, PI 200 or UCC.

The TP1SM is similar to TP1S, but with the cable connector rotated 90°.

    TP1(S) - A robust shank-mounted probe offering generous overtravel, ideally suited to manual CMMs. TP2 5-way - A compact probe allowing component penetration, ideally suited to CNC/DCC machines. TP6 - Complementing the TP2 series, but carrying longer and heavier styli, this probe is suited to general purpose applications. TP6A - This probe has all the functions of the TP6 probe and in addition the patented Renishaw autojoint that permits fast probe exchange without the need to requalify.
