A touch-trigger probe with radio transmission for communicating with the machine's CNC controller, for component setting/inspection on machining centres.
RMP60 uses a unique frequency hopping spread spectrum (FHSS) radio transmission system that makes it ideal for use on large and 5-axis machines.
As with its predecessor, RMP60 is a component of a radio transmission part probing system, and is ideally suited to large machining centres or where line-of-sight between probe and receiver is difficult to achieve.
RMP60 features an integrated probe module delivering exceptional robustness and generous over travel.
RMP60 complies with FCC regulations and operates in the 2.4 GHz band. It delivers interference-free transmission through the use of FHSS (frequency hopping spread spectrum). This allows many systems to operate in the same machine shop without risk of cross-talk.
The RMI-Q integrated interface/receiver is used to communicate between the RMP60 probe and the machine control.
The probe may be activated by RF signal initiated by an M-code, spinning or shank switch.The probe can be used alone or as part of a larger system comprised of multiple radio spindle probes and/or tool setters to function with a single RMI-Q.
RMP60 is also backward compatible with the RMI.
The following software packages can be used to program probing routines for work piece set-up and inspection on CNC machining centres
