Touch-trigger probe systems warnings

Pinch hazards exist between parts and between moving and static parts. Do not hold the probe head during movements, or during manual probe changes.

Beware of unexpected movement. The user should remain outside of the full working envelope of probe head/extension/probe combinations.

In all applications involving the use of machine tools or CMMs, eye protection is recommended.

For instructions regarding the safe cleaning of Renishaw products, refer to the Maintenance section of the relevant product documentation.

Remove power before performing any maintenance operations.

Refer to the machine supplier's operating instructions.

It is the machine supplier's responsibility to ensure that the user is made aware of any hazards involved in operation, including those mentioned in Renishaw product documentation, and to ensure that adequate guards and safety interlocks are provided.

Under certain circumstances the probe signal may falsely indicate a probe seated condition. Do not rely on probe signals to stop machine movement.
