Multiple Renishaw probe type installations
For installations using SP25M and other Renishaw probing systems, Renishaw has developed the IS1-2 interface selector system. The unit functions by identifying which probe has been fitted and switches the probe signal/power lines to an appropriate probe interface.
The system comprises an IS1-2 standalone or rack mountable selector unit, a separate power supply unit, additional probe connection cables and special output connection cables to combine the various outputs.
The IS1-2 has four separate outputs and is fully compatible with Renishaw's autochange system and motorised heads via the Renishaw product interconnection system (PICS).
This allows any combination of the following Renishaw probes together with SP25M:
- TP2 touch-trigger probe
- TP20 touch-trigger probe (where TP20 modules are not used integrally with TM25-20)
- TP200 touch-trigger strain gauge probe
- TP6 touch-trigger probe
- TP7M touch-trigger multiwire strain gauge probe
- SP80 scanning probe
- OTP6M optical trigger probe
NOTE: Please refer to the IS1-2 user's guide (part number H-1000-5085) and the PICS installation guide (part number H-1000-5000) or contact Renishaw directly for further information on these systems.
