UCC S3

Universal 3-axis scanning and touch-trigger automated head solution.

Powerful 3-axis CMM controller featuring built-in touch-trigger interface, TP200 interface, SP600 and SP25M interface, PH10 PLUS head controller and temperature compensation.

  • UCC S3Serving the 3-axis CMM market
  • Suited to large and small CMMs using SP25M or SP600 scanning probes with PH10 PLUS
  • Has integral thermal error compensation (TEC) with support for 16 channels of temperature compensation
  • Must be used in conjunction with a Renishaw SPA3 amplifier
  • Uses an external power supply and manages full control of the PH10 PLUS head, CMM and probe signals and communicates with the CMM's computer
