Battery-Free Infrared Touch Probe

Mon, 12/10/2007 - 9:52am
For users looking for an alternative to battery-operated touch probes for machining applications, the TS 444 infrared touch probe is offered. It can be powered by an alternative energy source in the form of compressed air supplied through the spindle of the machine tool, and can be used with all of the company’s control systems. To operate the probe, compressed air is introduced into the touch probe via the taper shank, and powers a turbine wheel inside the touch probe. The turbine wheel generates electrical energy through changes in the magnetic field, which is stored in high-power capacitors.
