The PHC10-2 controls any one of the PH10T, PH10M or PH10MQ heads based on commands received from either the CMM controller or the HCU1 (if fitted). In addition to this, the PHC10-2 interrogates the head and reports back:
the heads A and B positions,
any problems found
The PHC10-2 does not process any of the probe sensor signals. These are railed clean
through through the heads axes and controller to the probe interface.
A hand held, manual head drive unit for use with PHC10-2 and PHC50 motorised head controllers. It allows an operator to manually change the orientation of the head without the need for sending commands through the CMM controller. This is invaluable when:
programming an inspection routine (through teach cycle programming),
