Courtesy: HeidenhainHeidenhain's TS 642 is a universal replacement for the touch probes of Heidenhain's TS 6xx series. If the collision happens with one of Heidenhain's touch probes—TS 640, TS 641, TS 649 or TS 632—the TS 642 is available as a universal replacement. The TS 642's features include sensor technology with a service life of at least five million probes and an integrated workpiece cleaning jets functioning with air or coolant. It also has an infrared range up to 7 m with a wide transmissions angle and flexible usage of various batteries. In addition, the original transceiver can remain in the machine and all the original cables can also be used. Even the styluses are compatible. After an exchange, the existing taper shank can continue to be used.
