MAPS (manual autojoint probe stand)
The Renishaw manual autojoint probe stand (MAPS) is a low-cost storage rack for up to six autojointed probe / extension combinations. As a complementary product to the MIH, MAPS allows the user to manually insert or remove pre-datumed probe / extension set-ups for protective storage or use with the MIH. MAPS can be either wall-mounted or bolted directly to the CMM table for easy access.
For further information on MAPS see the user's guide (Renishaw part number H-1000-5300).
Autojoint extensions / adaptors
A large range of autojoint probe extensions / adaptors are available from Renishaw providing easy access to the deepest of features.
Utilising the patented Renishaw autojoint, probing set-ups can be simply locked onto the MIH without the need to requalify each time, yielding maximum flexbility and valuable time saving.

Renishaw provide an extensive range of machine mounting shanks to fit most makes of CMM. Please take care when mounting the MIH with a parallel shank, as any rotational movements will invalidate any stored data.
CAUTION: Always fit mounting shanks to the MIH by using the screws supplied (M3 5 mm (0.20 in) long). The use of longer screws will cause serious internal damage to the head.
AM1 adjustment module
The AM1 (Renishaw part number A-1026-0320) is a compact adjustment module for accurately aligning the probe heads with the CMM axes and / or the Renishaw autochange rack. In addition, an in-built quick release bayonet mechanism allows the head to be removed for storage and replaced without the need to re-align. Limited overtravel protection is also provided by the AM1.
