Optical transmission means no cables.

The Twin Probe System combines part setup and measurement with tool setting and broken tool detection. It uses the same optical receiver to process signals from a spindle-mounted OMP40-2 inspection probe and OTS tool setting probe. Optical signal transmission enables system integration and a cable-free environment. The OTS tool setting probe is designed for broken tool detection and measurement of tool length and diameter. The cableless tool setter is suited to machines with twin pallets or rotary tables, which are challenging for hard-wired tool setter installation. Sealed to withstand harsh machine tool environments, the OMP40-2 also is resistant to false-triggering from shock and vibration. Renishaw, Inc., Hoffman Estates, IL
