A range of new controllers that will give unprecedented flexibility to users of co-ordinate measuring machines (CMMs). The controllers are amongst the first to support the new industry standard I++DME protocol, which, in future, will allow CMM users to use their preferred measurement software with any machine control. The new family of universal CMM controllers (UCC) and servo power amplifiers (SPA) provide cost- effective solutions to every measurement requirement, from basic touch-trigger probing on manually operated machines to a fully automated multi-axis CMM with advanced scanning capability. For sophisticated probing requirements, UCC2 is a high power, multi-axis universal CMM controller, which offers greater measurement throughput by utilising powerful machine dynamic compensation techniques, innovative scanning routines and a higher data processing power than the earlier UCC1 system. Choosing the UCC2 controller also ensures a guaranteed upgrade path to the latest Renishaw technology. Standard features of the UCC2 controller include an interface for Renishaw’s market leading SP25M scanning probe, 4-axis control, advanced calibration routines for Renishaw probe technology and a comprehensive error map which compensates for the whole range of geometric, temperature and machine dynamic errors. For users choosing the optional scanning plug-in, there is the added benefit of Renscan DC, a powerful aid to productivity which allows a CMM to perform high speed scanning with accuracy levels normally associated with slow speed operation.
