Daughtercard options

The UCC2-2 has a range of compatible additional card options.



PICS / RS232 auxiliary product interface

Adds two RS232 communication ports to the UCC, and includes a PICs compliant connector. Optional card to allow the basic measuring system to be enhanced with alternative probes and/or added peripherals.

PH10 PLUS motorised head interface

Provides an interface between the PH10 PLUS probe head and the application software, requiring no external hardware and with minimal cabling requirements.

SP80 probe interface

Plug-in card for the UCC that operates the SP80 scanning probe.

Additional axis

Can be configured for a rotary table or dual drive interface. More than one can be fitted in a single controller.

Temperature sensor

Traditionally high accuracy measurement has been confined to environments where the temperature can be controlled to minimise the influence of thermal errors. As more and more CMM manufacturers are moving towards in line inspection with shop hardened machines, the need for temperature compensation is increasing.

The temperature sensor inputs can now be connected to UCC2-2 and, using the additional temperature card, make machine and workpiece temperature compensations, increasing the accuracy of the CMM.

UCC retrofit

Renishaw has formed a technical partnership with some of the industry's leading software companies and retrofitters to provide powerful CMM retrofit solutions using Renishaw's UCC controllers.
