Machine tool 3D touch probe
LP2, LP2H and LP2DD probes can be used in optical, inductive and hard-wired systems. Optical transmission is best suited to field retrofitting and optional fitment.
The optical transmission method requires either an OMP40M, RMP40M, OMP60M or an RMP60M. These provide a variety of solutions to suit different machine sizes, but each unit is functionally similar. They enable the probe to be turned on and off via an M-code, or turned on via an M-code and turned off via an internal timer.
The HSI interface unit processes signals between the probe and the CNC control.
