  • Ph9/ph9a

    Greetings!

    Can anyone tell me if a PH9A Probe Head is compatible with a PHC9 Probe Head Controller? I currently have a PH9.

    Thanks!

    Tim
    Thanks a million!

    Yes, the ONLY difference between the heads is that the PH9A has the 'quick-change' mount system. Not a RACK quick-change, but still a 'quick-change' system.

      Wow! Thanks for the quick response and the information. I'd have been in a world of hurt if they weren't compatible. Boss man would not be happy!

      Thanks again!

        I have two PH9 and one PH9A, they works just fine on the same controller. HOWEVER, they are not the same 'build' probe-wise. If you are getting this as a back-up, I would suggest you make duplicate programs since the probe file for the PH9 will have a different length than the PH9A and have one program PH9 and one PH9A. The PH9A uses a quick-change adaper to get back to the 8mm threads that the PH9 has, and the adapter is like 25mm long, so it will add that to the over-all build length.

          Ouch! That's gonna screw me up on a few programs with tall parts. I knew I'd have to change the probe build, but I didn't realize there was extra length.

          Thanks for the extra info!
