  • controllers capable of scanning with a SP25

    We are going to buy a new Global right after the first of the year and we have been told we have to get the the "latest and greatest" controller to support the SP25 and scanning capabilities. IMHO (I could be full of it too )scanning with the SP25 was done long before the newer controllers were available. What different types of controllers are you guys using and scanning with the SP25.

    The main reason I am asking because we use MOVE/ALL extensively and also are not running the latest version of the DEMON (currently production CMMs are still on V3.7MR4) and I know the newer controllers will only run 2011 or newer.

    B3C should scan just fine with a SP25, FBII should too with no problem. I know the new DC controller should too but I have no experience with those. I think you can scan with a Sharpe32Z but I've only seen sp600 on those.
    Did this post solve your problem? Let everyone know and help future users out!

      The newer controllers (the FDC or "DC" for short) will run any software and all the analog scanning probes like SP25 - but they are missing the infamous Move/All capability.

      The older controllers (FBIII and B3C) have been phased out.

          Looks like it's once again going to take some typing skills to turn your CMM into a pitching machine, which is bad news for all of you who taped up a bullseye on the wall behind the CMM and hold weekly practice. One step forward, two steps back.

            As far as I know (first hand info from the programmer), it is PC-DMIS that locks out the Move/All from the DC controller (splits up the command in parts and sends them). The DC controller by itself can do the throw...
