RCS P-series - Probing solutions for industrial automation

In-Process metrology for industrial automation

RCS P-series

Enhance your manufacturing capabilities with metrology enabled industrial automation 

RCS P-series probing solution, developed by Renishaw, applies metrology principles to your robot cell to enable in-process monitoring and automatic recovery. Multiple probe options are available based on the requirements of the cell, with radio, hard-wired or optical transmission available.

RCS P-series enables a number of advanced calibration and datum functions, customisable for any robot cell. All cell components calibrated in six degrees of freedom (DoF) relative to each other can be understood.

Permanently installed into the cell, the RCS P-series products are designed for in-process routines and recovery.

RCS P-series

RCS P-series bundle options

RCS P-series offers a range of probing options for your specific robotic cell requirements. The bundles offer hard-wired or wireless options, both with or without a toolsetter. All bundles include the RCS robot processing unit (RPU), an edge PC interfacing directly with the robot controller for probe calibration and metrology calculations.

Hard-wired bundle

Select the most straightforward probing bundle for when a wired probe suits your cell.

Radio bundle 

Integrate probing within industrial robotics using a radio (wireless) probe and receiver.

Optical bundle

For when your cell requires a wireless probing option and line of sight to a receiver is achievable.

Toolsetter only 

A toolsetter only bundle is used for when tool updates and broken tool detection are needed.

The RCS probing kits are built around both radio and hard-wired probe and tool setter solutions. When calibrated, the probing system allows you to create advanced datums and recovery sequences.

The dedicated RCS RPU enables improved accuracy utilising proven Renishaw expertise in geometry and machine calibration to locate tool and part frames within automated systems. This assists with set-up and recovery as well as compensating for short and long-term drifts.
