UCC MMI-2

UCC MMI-2

The UCC MMI-2 controller provides a USB based interface for manual CMMs. The UCC MMI-2 interfaces to the Renishaw digital range of scale readheads, or electrically compatible OEM versions, and to TP20 or similar touch-trigger probes. The UCC MMI-2 controls the collection of scales data, and latches the scales' positions when a TTP event is detected. The UCC MMI-2 also supports limited 24 V machine IO signalling, and can interface to a manual head if required.

UCC MMI-2 features

  • Supports manual CMM data collection
  • Three CMM axes can be interfaced by the UCC MMI-2
  • Supports incremental encoders
  • The UCC MMI-2 can automatically adjust the supply voltage to encoder readheads (to compensate for cable losses)
  • Probe interface (PICS)
  • Supports manual heads
  • Connection for the TP20, TP1, TP2 and TP6 touch-trigger probes
  • CMM machine input / output, including:
    • Air solenoid
    • Air status
    • 13 uncommitted I/O (6 input and 7 output) that can be customised by the user
  • Status indicating LEDs
  • Rear panel connectors for the external interface cables to and from the CMM
  • Rear panel USB connection for the two-way communication link to the CMM host computer
