The MasterProbe will have to be of type RDS-CAA in order to proceed with RDS-CAA
qualification. The “Fitting Position” button should be visible.

If MasterProbe is not already of type RDS-CAA, drop down the “Mode” menu, choose
“CFS qualification,” and proceed with locating Reference Sphere Position

If MasterProbe is already of type RDS-CAA, select “Ref. Sphere position” and follow
prompts. NOTE: If not already in A=0, B=0, be sure to drive the RDS clear of all
obstacles.

When qualifying RDS-CAA, it is recommended that the Reference Sphere is oriented
vertically.
Unscrew the reference sphere from rotating plate, loosen rotating plate and rotate 180
and reattach the reference sphere to the top threaded hole.

Be sure that the “Tilt” is set correctly. If the Reference Sphere is oriented vertically, “Tilt”
should be set to 180. It matters not what Rotation angle is set. Take the first point in the
direction of the stylus, as always.

After setting the Reference Sphere position, it is necessary to set the Fitting Position of
the MasterProbe. In this process, the MasterProbe will automatically find the Reference
Sphere position in all 12 orientations.

The progress of the Fitting Position is posted in the window. Status will indicate an OK
status unless there has been a collision. Check that the Standard Deviation for
MasterProbe is acceptable.
