The guide gives information on physical installation, system connections, communications and interface settings, as well as assistance in fault-finding during the installation of PHC10-3 PLUS.
The PH10 PLUS series of motorised probe heads can only be used in conjunction with the PHC10-3 PLUS when part of an OEM system installation. PHC10-3 PLUS has replaced the PHC10-2 and provides support for RS232 and USB communications (IEEE is no longer supported). PHC10-3 PLUS uses an external power supply for the PH10 PLUS series of heads, manages all the head functions and communicates via a suitable interface with the CMM's computer. PHC10-3 PLUS does not manage the probe functions but does have the provision for an interface to be fitted.
