PHC10-3 Probe Head Controller

The PH10 heads must be used in conjunction with either the PHC10-3 controller or the UCC (universal CMM controller).

The PHC10-3 incorporates an integral power supply for the head, manages all head functions and communicates via a suitable interface with the CMM computer. A separate probe interface is required for probe signal conditioning when using the PHC10-3.

If using the UCC, the PHC1050 daughtercard takes its power from the host unit.

Powering the PHC10-3

The PH10-3 head controller is to be used with the provided PSU - (Emerson DP4024N3M AC power adptor).  www.emerson.com This is a 24 V DC 49W supply and is conected to the PHC10-3 via Ø5.5 mm dc jack plug.
