Heidenhain's TS 440/TS 444 model of a 3-D tactile trigger probe offers pinpoint measuring accuracy. The TS series in general features a trigger stylus, which deflects upon component surface connection. This then signals the trigger to broadcast the measured calibrations via infrared light signals (some models include TS 4xx, TS 6xx, and TS 7xx), or by means of cable (models include TS 220, as well as TS 230). The TS 440/TS 444 is part of the former, with infrared light signal-transmitting capabilities.
