Renishaw TP200 CMM Probe Body New with 1 Year Warranty.
The TP200 probe body houses the strain sensing structure and electronic processing circuitry.
When the stylus contacts the workpiece, in a normal gauging move, the force applied to the stylus tip is transferred, through the stylus module and the coupling at the front of the probe body, to the silicon strain sensors. A tip deflection of a few μm is sufficient to trigger the probe. The probe's signals are amplified and processed in a hybrid microcircuit electronic assembly. The probe's data and control signals are communicated between the probe and the PI 200-3 interface over a pair of screened wires, allowing the TP200 system to be compatible with the majority of Renishaw probe heads and accessories.
The TP200B probe body uses the same technology as the TP200 probe body but has been designed to have a higher tolerance to vibration. This helps to overcome the problem of 'air' trigger generation which can arise from vibrations transmitted through the CMM or when using long styli with fast positioning speeds.
The TP200 / TP200B are electronic probes using strain gauge technology, which gives higher accuracy than kinematic touch-trigger probes. They combine outstanding metrology performance with superior functionality to produce a highly versatile DCC CMM probing system, with excellent productivity.
The stylus module is mounted on the TP200 / TP200B probe body via a highly repeatable magnetic kinematic joint, providing a rapid stylus changing capability and probe overtravel protection.
TSF (standard force) module is suitable for most applications.
LF (low force) module is recommended for use with small precision ball styli or on delicate materials.
