Brown & Sharpe CMMs - DEA protocol

  • System Requirements

    Supported DEA Controllers: Tutor-P

    Supported Probes Systems: PH10, PH9, MIP, MIH, PH1

    Supported Probe Sensors: TP200, TP20, TP6, TP2

    Supported Probe Changers: SCR200, MCR20

    Condition of the CMM: It should be calibrated and within OEM accuracy specifications, as ZEISS CALYPSO will read existing and future calibration data. It should also be in proper working order. We recommend you use your existing calibration service.

    Hardware Not Supported (not inclusive):

    • Rotary tables
    • Active or passive scanning sensors. (i.e. SP25, SP600)
    • Renishaw ACR1, ACR2, ACR3 probe changers.

  • Installation Instructions

    Step 1: Install CALYPSO software and any service packs prior to installing the interface.

    Step 2: Download and install the CALYPSO NZDI Driver. Follow instructions prompted during the installation.

    Step 3: Modify the configuration settings file for the host machine.

    For CALYPSO 2017 and after - Run DEANISettings.exe to configure the installation to the host machine. DEAINISettings.exe is located in (note the three underscores before and after NZDI): C:\Users\Public\Documents\Zeiss\CALYPSO\config\equip\___NZDI___\DEAInterface

    If you want to capture a log file and configuration of the system, use the CALYPSO Error Report. All interface log files and configuration settings will be captured in the error report. Log files that the interface generates are stored in: C:\Users\Public\Documents\Zeiss\CALYPSO\log

    DEAClient.ini Definition and Recommendations

    CMM Controller

    • Serial Port = 1 (RS232 PC port connected to controller. 1 or 2. See Windows Device Manager to verify.)
    • Logging = 8 (Creates debugging logs. Default is 8. Choose 1 through 10 for logging details.)

    ProbeHead

    • PHType = Fixed (PH1), Manual (MIP, MIH), PH9 or PH10
    • SystemRotation = 270.0
    • WristOrientation = -Z+X
    • XOffset = 0.0 (Distance in mm from quill end to wrist of probe. Recommend XOffset=0.0)
    • YOffset = 0.0 (Distance in mm from quill end to wrist of probe. Recommend YOffset=0.0)
    • ZOffset = -90.0 (Distance in mm from quill end to wrist of probe. Recommend ZOffset=-90.0)

    Volume Compensation

    • Volcomp Type = DEA DOS, DEA Windows, BnS CT2, BnS CT1
    • Comp File Name = COMPENS.DAT
    • COSDAT File Name = COSDAT1.BIN

    System Parameters

    • TouchSpeed = 5.0 (CMM speed during approach to probing. Range is 2.0 to 8.0 mm/sec. Recommend 5.0)
    • Accel Factor = 1 (Adjustment to the acceleration of the machine. Reduce for older mechanical instable machines)
    • CMM_Number = 00000 (No need to change this value.)

    Step 5: Configure CALYPSO and connect to the NZDI driver.

  • Calibration Instructions

    By design, the installation of ZEISS CALYPSO on non-ZEISS OEM machines does not Calibration Instructions:By design, the installation of ZEISS CALYPSO on non-ZEISS OEM machines does not require a machine calibration or acceptance test. Machine correction files for machine accuracy are managed and adjusted by the OEM and reside on the OEM Computer. Copying these files to a CALYPSO installation folder will allow CALYPSO to read and apply this calibration data. For quality assurance reasons, you may choose to perform an acceptance test of ZEISS CALYPSO and the CMM system. However, if machine accuracy or repeatability is not within acceptable limits, adjustments must be made to original calibration file and moved to the correct CALYPSO installation folder.

    After the installation of CALYPSO software, or after adjustments are made during a machine calibration, copy the following two files located on the OEM computer. For PCDMIS this is typically located in C:\PCDMISW\

    • COMPENS.DAT 
    • COSDAT1.BIN

    To the ZEISS CALYPSO computer folder C:\Users\Public\Documents\Zeiss\CALYPSO\config\equip\___NZDI___\ DEAInterface\
