  • System Requirements
    Supported ROMER systems: Absolute
    Supported ROMER Probe Systems: Hard Probe, TP2, TP200
    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.

  • 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 by the OEM and reside on the controller. Coordinate data that is sent to ZEISS CALYPSO is considered “calibrated” and is not adjusted or altered. 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 the machine and controller using the OEM software as needed. ZEISS Industrial Metrology does not provide this service or machine repair.
