SP600 Analogue Scanning Probe

Three unique and highly versatile probe systems are within Renishaw's SP600 family of analogue scanning probes: The SP600, SP600M and SP600Q.

All three of these probe systems offer high-performance inspection, digitising, and profile scanning capability for a wide range of CMMs.

Each system includes the probe itself, a PC interface card and a stylus module changing rack.
