Renishaw presents a system of transmission of probe by radio for machining centres

Drafting MU01/09/2003
Renishaw, multinational specialized in metrology, introduces the first probe of machine tool in the world that uses the broadcasting frequency spectrum (FHSS) jump. The new RMP60 is also the probe of shorter radio available, with the advantages resulting from the rapid calibration and verification of pieces in a wide range of machines.
The RMP60 probe and the new RMI receiver have been developed from a considerable experience gained through the manufacture of a range of certified products of any radio transmitting channel fixed MP16 and MP18 probe systems. Renishaw now adopts the FHSS technology for its next generation of systems of broadcasting because of the considerable advantages that contribute to the system users.

Broad spectrum transmissions allow a more powerful than single channel communication, as they distributed signals in a wider range of frequencies. RMP60 operates in a band for industrial products 2.402-2.481 GHz. used jumps of frequencies, where transmitting a signal through a coded pattern of different frequencies identified with the transmitter and radio receiver. The innovative use of Renishaw of this technology allows reliable probe signals to be sent in real time in an industrial setting.

The RMP60 system need not be located in a dedicated radio channel. Once aligned, the RMP60 probe and RMI receiver carried out joint frequency leaps to overcome any possible interference, without changing channel or frequency band. The allocated band is divided into 79 channels of 1 MHz FHSS allows several probe systems and other industrial equipment to coexist perfectly, with a minimum chance of interference.

The system is compatible with the regulations of radio frequency of the European Community, United States, Japan and many other countries.

With only 63 mm in diameter and 76 mm in length, the RMP60 is available shorter radio probe. You can probe cuts of surfaces using the shorter of the carousel of the machine tools.

Probe by radio systems provide a great flexibility of positioning and orientation of the recipient, especially where the focus line restrictions make little practical optical transmission systems. The RMI is a combination of antenna and interface, so it is not necessary to mount another separate compartment in the cabin of control. Pipelines of circuits are simpler and installed more rapidly, by what probe RMP60 can be easily installed in existing machines.

New adjustment system

Another novelty of Renishaw is a system of adjustment tools NC 4 laser. It is a system without contact and very fast with ultracompactas transmitter and receiver units and provides a great repeatability over distances of up to five meters. According to the distance, it is possible to measure tools up to 0.2 mm in diameter.
