Probe Type
   Probe Type:       
   Your choices are...         
   Touch-Trigger (Discrete Point) Probe       The most common probe type.  Discrete point probes actually touch the surface of the work piece.  Upon contact, a signal containing the coordinates of that point is sent to the CMM.  The probe is then backed off and moved to the next location where the process is repeated. 
   Displacement Measuring Probe       Generally referred to as a scanning probe.  This method generally involves passing the probe over a target surface at its working range.  As the probe scans the surface, it transmits a continuous flow of data to the measurement system.  Scanning contact probes may use linear variable differential transformer (LVDT) or optoelectronic position sensing. 
   Proximity (Noncontact) Probe       Generally referred to as a scanning probe.  This method generally involves passing the probe over a target surface at its working range.  As the probe scans the surface, it transmits a continuous flow of data to the measurement system.  Noncontact probes, either scanning or discrete can use laser, capacitive or video measurement technology. 
   Other       Other unlisted probe type. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.

Operating Parameters
   Mounting       
   Your choices are...         
   Vertical       The probe is mounted vertically on the CMM. 
   Horizontal       The probe is mounted horizontally on the CMM. 
   Other       Other unlisted mounting type. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Axes      The directions of gauging relative to the probe's coordinate system.
   Your choices are...         
   +X       The probe can sense along the positive x-axis. 
   -X       The probe can sense along the negative x-axis. 
   +Y       The probe can sense along the positive y-axis. 
   -Y       The probe can sense along the negative y-axis. 
   +Z       The probe can sense along the positive z-axis. 
   -Z       The probe can sense along the negative z-axis. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Measuring Range:       The greatest distance the probe can travel to measure in any direction. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.
   Repeatability:       The quantitative degree of agreement between results of successive measurements of the same quantity under identical conditions.  Unidirectional repeatability is specified for touch-trigger probes. 
   Search Logic:      All matching products will have a value less than or equal to the specified value.
   Stylus Force:       The maximum force applied by the stylus when contacting with the surface being measured. 
   Search Logic:      User may specify either, both, or neither of the "At Least" and "No More Than" values. Products returned as matches will meet all specified criteria.

Features and Options
   Sensor Type:       
   Your choices are...         
   Kinematic (Switching)       Key characteristics of kinematic or switching sensor types include: Wide range of products available, small probe size possible, low over-travel force, simple interfacing, and robust and universal filament. 
   Strain Sensing       Key characteristics of strain sensor types include: Fewer lobing errors, long operating life, extremely versatile, wide operating speed range, long stylus carrying and ideal for peck, or stitch scanning. 
   Piezoelectric       Key characteristics of piezoelectric sensor types include: Very few lobing errors, large stylus-carrying capability, multi-mode sensor operating extend versatility, and restricted operating-speed range. 
   LVDT (Linear Variable Differential Transformer)       Key characteristics of LVDT or linear variable-differential transformer sensor types include: High accuracy and large stylus carrying capacity. 
   Optoelectronic       Key characteristics of optoelectronic sensor types include: High accuracy than kinematic types and high data rates. 
   Laser Triangulation       Key characteristics of laser triangulation sensor types include: Single axis profile measurement and the laser may be reflected by surface reflectivity. 
   Capacitive       Key characteristics of capacitive sensor types include: Alternative noncontact technology, profile, form and surface flaw measurement may be affected by material type or surface chemistry and uses a fixed stylus. 
   Video Imaging       Key characteristics of video imaging sensor types include: Suitable for 2-D and flexible parts, automatic edge detection possible, and may be affected by surface reflectivity and ambient light. 
   Other       Other unlisted sensor type. 
   Search Logic:      All products with ANY of the selected attributes will be returned as matches. Leaving all boxes unchecked will not limit the search criteria for this question; products with all attribute options will be returned as matches.
   Status Indicators?       The probe has an LED or other status indicator. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Detachable Stylus Module?       The styli are detachable from the probe. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   Stylus Force Adjustment?       The force of the styli can be adjusted on the probe. 
   Search Logic:      "Required" and "Must Not Have" criteria limit returned matches as specified. Products with optional attributes will be returned for either choice.
   CNC / Machine Tool Applications?       Probes used on Computer Numerically Controlled (CNC) machine tools provide the measurement capability to automatically control the machining process. This eliminates the need for costly, time consuming manual procedures.
