  • Calibration Dwell

    Good morning,

    We are attempting to calibrate some new probes on a Brown and Sharp Global machine. When we try to do a full calibration, the probe makes a scan, and then dwells at the end of the scan for @45 seconds. Later in the routine it might throw up a "direction not clearly defined" alarm and stop. Any suggestions?

    Thanks.

    I don't think probes are suppose to scan when they are being calibrated. All touch points including scanning heads. What kind of probing hardware do you have?

      PH10 / SM25 stuff scans when calibrating.

      Yep, we've got the Renishaw SM25. When we make a new probe, or have to fix a problem with an older one we have to do what's called a full calibration. The ruby slides around on the sphere during that process.

        I've never seen mine 'dwell', just zips right along.

        Since it is a 'last thought', I'll put it out there first...

        MAKE SURE your 'net' connection between the controller and computer is plugged in tight (the cat5 cable).

          Make sure the "reset tips to theoretical" box is checked. Also, make sure your calibration sphere you are defining, is the right one.
