  • A97.5 with PH10MQ?

    Anyone out there know if I can possibly allow calibration of A97.5 or A105 with a PH10MQ head. Is there a setting that will allow this? As of now, I get an ILLEGAL tip command, but I'm able to move to the angle with the Hand Control. Any suggestions?

    I remember seeing this on the "old" board. You have to override a setting that is there on some machines to avoid damage.
    When in doubt, post code. A second set of eyes might see something you missed.

      I use 97.5 & 105 with a ph10mq all the time I believe that is in there if you are using a sp600 it will not do it.I belive there is a setting in the settings editor to change that.Its been a long time ago that I changed that.

        Jim is correct its a sp600 thing for clearance of the sensor to the head when rotating B axis of probe

          If you over ride this failsafe, and have an autocal routine, you will want to make sure you do a user defined cal order and place that tip AFTER another tip that has a close "B" rotation. The ph10mq will index "A" first and rotate "B" second, if the A97.5,B180 tip is after say A0B0 the sp600 will hit the ph10 as it rotates. There is an extension that you can purchase that will extend the length enough to eliminate this.

          Learned that one the hard way.

            We're not using an SP600, so no worries of crashing. Anyone remember where to change the settings?

              Ironic

              I'm having somewhat that trouble as of this moment.

              Using a PH10MQ TP20 with 20 Ext and 2x10mm Tip ,

              I can rotate to A105 B90 or B-90 but can't calibrate within the Deviation , actualy it's way out .... Have tried Manual cal , etc etc these are the only probes I can't calibrate oh and A105 B97.5 as well

                Try

                Going to Probe utilities or place cursor on Loadprobe command and right click - choose Edit...

                Make sure you have the correct probe file -> Add Angles select attitudes.

                Qualify... hope this is waht you're looking for.

                  I can change to that probe but I can't calibrate it

                    You need to access the hyper-terminal.
                    As far as I know this is the way to do it(this is how I did it at least)...


                    ACCESSING THE HYPER-TERMINAL (CHANGE PROBE HEAD)
                    3.5 AND ABOVE
                    • EDIT>PREFERENCES>MACHINE INTERFACE SETUP
                    • TERMINAL
                    • CNTRL ECB
                    • READY PROMPT, TYPE TESTSOFT
                    • PASSWORD = BNS
                    • CHOOSE 8
                    • HIT “E-STOP”
                    • CHOOSE 9
                    • CHOOSE 2
                    • CHOOSE 0 AND CONTINUE CHOOSING 0 UNTIL YOU REACH %%.
                    • CNTRL ECB
                    • SET_PAR FILE_WRT
                    • MOVE HYPER-TERMINAL WINDOW SO THAT THE BUTTON “TERMINAL” IS VISIBLE. CLICK THE BUTTON “TERMINAL”, DO NOT CLOSE THE WINDOW BY CLICKING ON THE “X”(TOP RIGHT OF WINDOW).
                    • SHUT DOWN THE CONTROLLER AND RE-BOOT THE COMPUTER.


                    An aside…
                    If you need to access the hyper terminal from your computer
                    • Start
                    • Programs
                    • Accessories
                    • Communication
                    • Hyper Terminal
                    Baud= 9600
                    Data bytes=8
                    Parity=none
                    Stop bytes=1
                    Flow Control= x on / x off none

                      The Coot,
                      Which Tp20 Are You Using? You Should At Least Use Medium Force With That Much Length Of Tip Hanging Off Of It.

                        I use that much length all the time on a std force module. Never had any problems. Try cleaning the probe and the cal. sphere. If that doesn't work try a different module - med. force as rebeldude suggested.

                        Also, I assume you are calibrating starting with A0B0 and then having it automatically move to the other angles.

                          Just an idea...
                          Do you need to elevate the cal. sphere a little bit?
                          Lately, it occurs to me
                          What a long, strange trip it's been.

                            Thx all , using a med force with no problems in the past.I manualy calibrated the two probes A105 B90/B-90 and had no problems.Changed the angles in the Calibration Mode (User Defined)for when these two Tip's are Calibrated in DCC mode.All is well.

                            Thx for the reply's
