m&h TP-R-400 radio probe

Versatile and compact radio probe with unique handling

m&h TP-R-400 radio probe

The m&h TP-R-400 radio probe is characterised by versatility thanks to its modular and user-friendly design. 

Despite its compact size, a wide range of different measuring units, diverse extensions and styli configurations can be used to maximise flexibility and efficiency. This means the m&h TP-R-400 can be optimally adapted to future requirements and applications on the machine tool. 

The probe was designed for ideal use in modern production environment. Equipped with an all-round illumination ring, unique handling and a display on the probe, configuration changes and status checks of the probe have never been easier. Additionally, equipped with a separate base plate, the TP-R-400 can even be converted into a tool-setter.

Leveraging AFS technology, the m&h TP-R-400 delivers transmission free of interference signals, offering the utmost reliability and efficiency.

  • Features & benefits

    All-round visible status via the illumination ring

    m&h R-400 is the first system on the market that uses an illumination ring to display
    the status of the machine tool for operators and service staff, providing complete visibility and control. 

    Unique operation

    The m&h R-400 system base is the first touch probe on the market that can be operated
    via a touch sensor. Other devices, such as smartphones, are not necessary. The clear display and icons enable intuitive operation. Safety functions such as “lock settings” protect the unit from unwanted adjustments, increasing process reliability.

    MDR and AFS technology in the 2.4 GHz range

    Multi Data Rate (MDR) technology makes it possible to transmit high data rates and large data sets in the shortest possible time. The spread spectrum transmission and multiple transfer of records ensure transmission reliability and a fast, trouble-free measurement process.

    With Automatic Frequency Select (AFS) technology, the frequency ranges of the 2.4GHz radio band are continually scanned to ensure the automatic selection of partial frequencies that are free of interfering signals. This not only ensures the system's own transmission will be fast and trouble-free, but also prevents interference form WLAN systems or other radio sources.
