UCC S5

5-axis scanning motion and head controller supporting the second generation REVO-2 measurement head

  • UCC S5Multi-sensor support:
    • Tactile touch-trigger and scanning
    • Non-contact vision measurement
    • Surface finish measurement
  • Must be used in conjunction with a Renishaw SPA3 amplifier
  • Uses an external power supply
  • Manages full control of the REVO-2 head, CMM and probe signals, and communicates with the CMM's computer
  • 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
