Beware of unexpected movement. The user should remain outside of the full working envelope of probe head and stylus. The machine supplier should ensure the user is aware of the full working envelope of the system.

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

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.

Refer to the machine supplier's operating instructions.

The system components contain no user serviceable parts, with the exception of FCR25. No attempt should be made to disassemble any part of the product. In the event of a problem please contact your supplier for assistance.

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

Probe trigger override on the MCU joystick should be used with care, since it will prevent the CMM from stopping in the event of a collision.

The probe joints are designed to release the probe and / or the stylus holder in the event of a crash.

This equipment is not suitable for use in a potentially explosive atmosphere.

Pinch hazards exist between parts. Do not hold the probe or probe head during movements.

It is essential for continued safety that all fuses are replaced by the correct type and rating.

REVO must be transported in Renishaw supplied packaging.

The cables must meet Renishaw specifications. Incorrect cabling could cause damage to the equipment.

WARNING: Avoid touching the probes (including counter balance arms), stylus holders and other modules when the REVO-2 head is engaged (servo LED green) and the system is ready for measurement.

SFM-# handling

The SFM-# modules are sensitive measuring devices and should be handled with care.

SFM-# warnings

  • Avoid dropping the SFM modules or colliding with workpieces or parts of the CMM structure.
  • Particular care should be given to the stylus tip. Avoid contact with the stylus unless it is being used for measurement.
  • Visually examine the stylus tip for accumulation of dirt or dust.
  • Ensure measurement surfaces are dry and clear of debris before being inspected with SFP2.
