SP25M straight stylus carrying capability and performance guidelines

SP25M gives exceptional scanning performance over the entire range of stylus lengths. This is achieved by using a dedicated set of scanning modules, SM25-1, SM25-2, SM25-3, SM25-4 and SM25-5. Each module is optimised to carry a specific stylus range whilst maintaining a low contact force band and maximised sensor performance.

This design approach has enabled SP25M to successfully counter the loss of scanning system performance traditionally encountered as stylus length increases. It is therefore important to adhere to the stylus carrying recommendations given.

Use of the Renishaw range of M3 styli and accessories is recommended. This range includes several longer styli with carbon fibre stems for exceptional performance as well as kits specifically suited to each of the scanning modules.
