Cable guide

The CMM cable guide contains comprehensive information on the most commonly used Renishaw cables.

It is of particular use to engineers involved in installation or support of Renishaw equipment on CMMs, or where correct cable identification is required.

Further information for signals, connectors and switch settings of controllers and interfaces can be found in the CMM products switch setting and connector guide (Renishaw part number H-1000-4068) or relevant installation and user's guides.

Renishaw cables are identified by marker rings or printing to show the 'PL' number.

These markers have a T,V or U suffix to reflect the cable function and design.

Further customised cable solutions are available for specific applications, please contact Renishaw for further details.
