The UCC BI is required for a CMM system which uses brushless motors. The UCC BI provides the interface between the CMM controller and the SPA2-2 (which provides power to the brushless motors).
Scale 0 interface (15W HDD socket)
UCC - SPA (RJ45 socket)
Scale 1 interface (15W HDD socket)
SPA - A (RJ45 socket)
Scale 2 interface (15W HDD socket)
SPA - B (RJ45 socket)
Scale 3 interface (15W HDD socket)
MCU (9W D plug)
Machine I/O (44W HDD socket)
Servo power amplifier / E-STOP (25W D socket)
RS232 (9W D plug)
PICS (9W D socket)
UCC BI power jack (6.3 mm socket)
NOTE: Please see 'Troubleshooting' section for assistance in diagnosing system faults.
WARNING: The capability to connect the UCC BI to a third party analogue amplifier requires UCCsuite v5.3 or newer.
- Up to four CMM axes can be handled by the UCC BI
- Up to five CMM axes can be handled by a dual UCC BI system.
- The UCC BI can automatically adjust the supply voltage to encoder readheads (to compensate for long scale cables)
- Some 3rd party temperature compensation boxes can be interfaced to the UCC BI using the RS232 interface
- Probe interface (PICS)
- MCU interface
- Supporting incremental and absolute encoders
- CMM machine input / output, including:
- Air solenoid
- Brakes (for each axis)
- Z-axis crash status
- Travel limit warnings (both inner and outer limits for each axis)
- Air status
- 13 un-committed I/O (6 input and 7 output) that can be customised by the user
