Operation manual - measure probe
1. Measuring probes in general
The tried and tested principle of the inductive half-bridge is used in the probes. This guaranties an absolutely hysteresis-free measurement. The measuring bolts are mounted in high-precision ball bearings. The probe is largely protected against mechanical stress in its robust housing. The bellows is covered by a sleeve with which the pre-stroke can be adjusted at the same time. All probes match their electrical data and can be connected to devices from different manufacturers. Depending on the type, the measuring ranges of the measuring probes are +/- 1 mm, 2 mm and 10 mm.
2. Measuring probe fastening
The probes can be clamped anywhere on their cylindrical shank (diameter 8g6). The clamping screw should only be tightened moderately. No deforming clamping elements may be used. Pneumatically deliverable probes should not be clamped in the front area (24 mm) as this is where the high-precision guide is located.
3. Adjustment of measuring pin
After connecting the probe to the measuring unit and setting the desired measuring range, the stroke limiter must be released. Turn back the ring nut and adjust the stroke limiter so that the measuring range is just exceeded. Now, the stroke limitation with the ring nut is to lock. Too large selections lead to faster wear.
The probes are protected against the ingress of dust and liquids. However, it is possible that the bellows is destroyed when using aggressive coolant. Here you must ensure the necessary drainage of the coolant. Through the use of intermediate plungers, the button can be removed from the area of direct contamination.
5. Connection calbe
The connection cable should be largely protected against damage.
6. Lateral load
The lateral load of the measuring bolt is to be avoided, since the high-precision ball guide does not tolerate lateral forces. If necessary, use reversing levers here.
When mounting in the measuring unit, it must also be ensured that the post-stroke of the probe can not be exceeded in the case of a defective or missing workpiece. This leads to the mechanical destruction of the probe. Remedy can be created by additional stops.
8. Pneumatically detectable probe
When pneumatically detectable probes are used, the measuring air must be cleaned and dry (use micro filters). Forward and return stroke must be damped by means of a throttle in order to avoid hard impacts on the workpiece and in the button. In addition, before connecting the button, the system must be blown freely so that there are no dirt particles in the measuring air. Pneumatically deliverable pushbuttons should not be clamped in the front area (24 mm) as this is where the high-precision guide is located.

Electronic measuring probes can be repaired if they have no external damage and are electrically or mechanically faulty.
