Motorized Head and Autochange Rack Controllers

ACC2-2 autochange rack controller

The ACC2-2 handles the communications to and from the CMM controller. As a result, it is responsible for effectively controlling the ACR1 autochange rack and multiplexes. It is also responsible forinterfacing the head and datum probe signals.

HCU1 hand control unit

A portable head drive and position display unit, the HCU1 is meant to be used with the PHC10-2 motorised head controller. It allows an operator to easily and manually change the orientation of the head, without having to send commands through the CMM controller.

 Features of the HCU1 include the following:

  • Two speed action (jog and rapid move)
  • Two axis head display
  • Transmit button for teach cycle
  • Status and error LEDs

PHC10-3 head controller

By receiving instructions from the CMM controller, the PHC10-3 controls all head functions and reports system status to the CMM.The PHC10-3 does not process any of the probe sensor signals. These are railed clean through the heads axes and controller to the probe interface.

Features of the PHC10-3 include the following:

  • Drives PH10 (PH10T, PH10M or PH10MQ) to position - sent either from the HCU1 or CMM
  • Checks and reports position
  • Flags up errors, e.g. failure to reach position, obstruction before or after locking etc.

PHC1050 UCC daughtercard

The PHC1050 interface board provides a simple interface between the PH10 probe head and the metrology application software. Impressingly enough, it uses no external hardware and with minimal cabling and connectors. 

PHC10-2

The PHC10-2 controls all head functions to the CMM. It also reports the system status to ensure it is running properly and efficiently.

The PHC10-2 does not process any of the probe sensor signals. These are railed clean through the heads axes and controller to the probe interface.

Features of the PHC10-2 include the following:

  • Drives PH10 (PH10T, PH10M or PH10MQ) to position - sent either from the HCU1 or CMM.
  • Checks and reports position
  • Flags up errors. For example, failure to reach position, obstruction before or after locking, etc.

The PHC10-2 does not process any of the probe sensor signals. These are railed clean through the heads axes and controller to the probe interface.
