REVO-2 and the ATOM™ encoder
10 November 2016
The REVO® multi-sensor system is one of Renishaw's flagship products and enables CMM users to perform 5-axis measurement on a 3-axis co-ordinate measuring machine (CMM). REVO-2, its improved version, incorporates Renishaw's latest ATOM™ incremental rotary encoder with RCDM rotary (angle) glass scales on both of its axes (yaw and pitch). Each 20 μm-pitch RCDM glass disc (Ø68 mm) is face-read by a dual-readhead setup which helps to optimise REVO-2 performance by eliminating rotational eccentricity error.
