Machine to machine

PLM6 and PLM7 are straight cables, both having a 15-pin D-type plug at end 'A' and a 14-pin chassis-mount LEMO socket supplied loose for fitment to end 'B'. PLM8 and PLM9 are straight cables that have a 15-pin D-type plug at end 'A' and a 14-pin in-line LEMO socket supplied loose for fitment to end 'B'. They all reside within the CMM axis conduits and link with the probe head's cables to relay the motorised probe head and controller signals.

These are also used to link with adaptor cables and relay SP80 scanning probe signals to and from Renishaw controllers or equivalent counter cards via an IU80 interpolator unit.

PL10 is a straight cable and has an in-line 5-pin DIN socket at end 'A' and an in-line Lemo plug at end 'B'. It electrically connects Renishaw manual probe heads to the CMM quill.

Manual head to Franz binder connector

PL28 and PL52 are coiled cables with a round Franz binder plug at end 'A' and a moulded 90 degree 5-pin DIN plug at end 'B'. The PL28 is used on Stiefelmayer CMMs to electrically connect Renishaw manual probe heads to the quill, whereas the PL52 uses in-line and linked 1K2 ohm resistors - these protect the Renishaw manual probe heads when connected to the CMM quill.
