for machine tools
Upon contact with a workpiece surface, the stylus of a TS three-dimensional touch trigger probe is deflected upon contact. A trigger signal is released in the TS which is then transmitted to the control. This occurs either as an infrared light signal (TS 7xx, TS 6xx and TS 4xx) or via a cable (TS 220 and TS 230). The actual position values as measured by the machine axis encoders are simultaneously saved by the control and the information is then utilized for further processing.
