Deva Expands CMM Interface And Retrofit Solutions

Designed to meet the demanding requirements of the Coordinate Measuring Machine (CMM) OEM’s and the CMM retrofit market, the Deva 004 is a single PCIE interface card, which integrates digital IO, a Renishaw touch probe interface and fully featured probe cycle library.

On-board signal conditioning circuitry ensures high-precision position measurement so that external probe conditioning equipment is no longer needed.  An ActiveX control encapsulates the functionality required by CNC CMM applications in a fast, easy to use component that is compatible with rapid application development tools such as Visual Basic and Visual ‘C’. Example source code demonstrates the capabilities of the ActiveX, which is also compatible with many popular 3rd-party CMM software packages. Axis tuning and jogging facilities are provided for easy machine set-up.

Hexagon have announced support for the Deva 001 and 037 manual CMM interfaces, within their PC-DMIS 2019 R1 release and with over 30 new features and improvements, PC-DMIS continues to offer a highly flexible and widely-adopted metrology software.  Available as a retrofit package for most other measurement equipment manufacturers’ machines, it allows users of non-Hexagon equipment to take advantage of PC-DMIS technology through Deva’s 001 and 037 cost effective Manual CMM Retrofit Solutions.

Mitutoyo’s MSCOSMOS is the latest addition to Deva software support.  A direct interface to support CNC machines with touch probe compatibility has just been released. Now users are no longer limited to running MSCOSMOS on Mitutoyo controlled machines, as this direct driver allows MSCOSMOS to be utilized on the Deva 004 CMM controller range.
