UCC2-2 CMM Controller

About UCC2-2


Renishaw's universal CMM controller is suitable for touch-trigger and scanning probing.

The new UCC2-2 offers full 4-axis control and scanning capability.

Known part adaptive scanning techniques:

  • Cylinder scan
  • Gasket scan
  • Grid scan
  • Automatic find centre
  • Advanced data filtering
  • Advanced analogue probe calibration

UCC2-2 specification

The technical specification includes the following features:

Maximum CMM axes4
Scale inputs

Renishaw RGH22, RGH24, RGH41 and other digital scales are directly supported.

Analogue scales can be supported via an external interface.

Daughtercard options


The UCC2-2 has a range of compatible additional card options.

PICS / RS232 auxiliary product interfaceAdds two RS232 communication ports to the UCC, and includes a PICs compliant connector. Optional card to allow the basic measuring system to be enhanced with alternative probes and/or added peripherals.
PH10 PLUS motorised head interfaceProvides an interface between the PH10 PLUS probe head and theapplication software, requiring no external hardware and with minimal cabling requirements.
SP80 probe interfacePlug-in card for the UCC that operates the SP80 scanning probe.
Additional axisCan be configured for a rotary table or dual drive interface. More than one can be fitted in a single controller.
Temperature sensor

Traditionally high accuracy measurement has been confined to environments where the temperature can be controlled to minimise the influence of thermal errors. As more and more CMM manufacturers are moving towards in line inspection with shop hardened machines, the need for temperature compensation is increasing.

The temperature sensor inputs can now be connected to UCC2-2 and, using the additional temperature card, make machine and workpiece temperature compensations, increasing the accuracy of the CMM.
