TP200 touch-trigger probe system

Electronic module-changing probes, using strain-gauge technology, for manual and DCC CMMs

TP200 probe body with standard force module

The TP200 / TP200B are electronic probes using strain gauge technology, which gives higher accuracy than kinematic touch-trigger probes. They combine outstanding metrology performance with superior functionality to produce a highly versatile DCC CMM probing system, with excellent productivity.

Features and benefits

  • Excellent repeatability and precision 3D form measurement
  • Rapid exchange between stylus configurations without the need to re-calibrate
  • 6-way measuring capability (±X, ±Y, ±Z)
  • Zero reseat errors and no lobing effect
  • Suitable for intensive 'peck' or 'stitch' scanning
  • Stylus reach up to 100 mm (3.99 in) GF range
  • Module life of more than 10 million triggers
  • Compatible with the full range of Renishaw probe heads and accessories

Above data applies for test conditions as follows: Stylus length 50 mm (1.97 in), stylus velocity 480 mm/min (1.57 ft/min).

* Air trigger (or false trigger). The TP200B reduces probe triggers that may be caused by vibrations.
