The PHC10-3 PLUS head control receives the instructions from the CMM control. It then monitors the head functions and sends system status to the CMM:
• Place the PH10 PLUS (PH10T PLUS, PH10M PLUS or PH10MQ PLUS) in position.
• Checks the position and transmits the report
• Flags errors, eg if position is not reached, if there are obstructions before or after blocking, etc.
• The PHC10-3 PLUS control does not process any of the probe sensor signals. These are sent clean directly through the head and control shafts to the probe interface.
