XYZ Precise Touch Probe with Alligator clip For CNC Lead / QueenBEE Machines - Plug & Play
The XYZ Touch Probe is used with the end mill to accurately set the 0, 0, 0 positions of the workpiece.
This very handy tool comes with a 115cm cable that has a pre-terminated alligator clip on the red wire and a pre-stripped end on the black wire. The other end of the cable is un-touched and ready to be stripped and connected to whichever controller you are using.
The XYZ Touch Probe is made from 6063-T5 Aluminium with no coating or anodizing in order to ensure excellent electrical conductivity.
The Touch Probe is designed so that it will sit off the corner of the workpiece allowing you to position the X and Y zero coordinates as well as the Z zero coordinate accurately and easily.
Type: XYZ Touch Probe
Compatibility: All Controllers such as GRBL,Mach3,CNC USB,OFFLINE,Openbuilds BlackBox etc.
Compatible with GRBL and other 3rd party CNC Controller/Firmwares that support touch-contact probes, for example, Duet, Reprap, Mach4, and LinuxCNC.
It is good practice to twist the strands of copper so they make a nice clean and solid conductor. This will ensure good contact is made when terminating the wire, as well as lower the chance of strands breaking when terminating.
Insert the stripped cable from the black wire into the non-tapped hole. Ensure it is all the way in.
Insert the M3 set screw into the tapped hole and tighten it onto the inserted wire. Ensure it is making good contact. (Don’t tighten so hard that you break the wires). Make sure by gently pulling on the cable that is securely fixed in the terminal.
Place your Touch probe on the corner of the workpiece where you would like to set 0, 0, 0.
Activate your machine and manually jog the machine to the middle of the touch probe about 5mm off of the probe’s surface.
Attach the alligator clip to your endmill.
Use the relevant software to begin the probing process and therefore zero your workpiece.
