RMP40 Compact Touch Probe
Renishaw's smallest probe with frequency hopping radio transmission.
RMP40 is a new addition to Renishaw's inspection probe family. This is Renishaw's smallest frequency hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) radio probe ideal for all sizes of machining centres.
The RMP40 combines the miniaturisation of the OMP40-2 with the radio capability used in the RMP60 and RMP600. It uses the 2.4 GHz frequency band that is compliant with radio regulations worldwide and compatible with any Renishaw RMI or RMI-Q interface/receiver.
With RMP40, machining centres fitted with small HSK and taper spindles can now benefit from FHSS radio transmission technology. It is ideal for multi-axis milling applications where the line of sight between the inspection probe and interface cannot always be maintained.
RMP40 Feature and benefits
Unlike fixed frequency systems, with the RMP40 there is no need to allocate a specific radio channel.
Compact and robust
The RMP40 is ideal for machines of all sizes and can access surfaces cut with short tools. Its robust stainless steel body makes it suited to the harshest machine environments.
Ideal for retrofit
The RMI or RMI-Q (a combined antenna, interface and receiver) can be positioned anywhere near the machine, resulting in a fast installation.
Frequency hopping spread spectrum transmission
Renishaw's FHSS transmission for probes allows the RMP40 and RMI or RMI-Q to hop frequencies together to provide reliable communications.
Miniaturisation of electronics has allowed the development of an ultra-compact radio probe measuring only 40 mm in diameter and 50 mm in length; Renishaw's smallest radio probe.
Simple and safe programming
Patented Trigger Logic™ enables users to configure the system without access to the internals of the probe.
RMP40 Software options
The following software packages can be used to program probing routines for work piece set-up and inspection on CNC machining centres
•EasyProbe - entry-level package for simple work piece set-up
•Inspection - basic set-up and work piece inspection cycles, with automatic update of offsets
•Inspection Plus - an integrated suite of inspection cycles including vector measurement
•Productivity+™ Active Editor Pro - a PC-based software package with GUI, allowing the user to select features directly from an imported CAD model, making the generation of probing cycles even easier.
