Probes, Adapters and Extensions for the Quantum Series FaroArm


If you want to use the probes from a serial FaroArm® model with the Quantum series FaroArm, ScanArm, or Design ScanArm® you will need an adapter. This is because the probes for the Quantum snap into place whereas the probes for the serial models screw into place.The adapters available are the Universal Adapter, the Extension Adapter, and the TP-20. If you have any questions, or would like to make a purchase, please contact your regional Sales Agent. 

Standard iProbes

20540-XXX is the new standard iProbe, complete with a programmed certified diameter. This means that the FaroArm recognizes the diameter of the probe automatically. This enables probe changing without recalibration.

Standard Probes Include

  • (20540-001) 3MM (Included with purchase)
  • (20540-002) 6MM  (Included with purchase)
  • (20540-003) 1MM
  • (20540-004) 2MM
  • (20540-005) 8MM
  • (20540-006) 10MM
  • (20540-007) 12MM

Universal Adapter

20780 is the custom probe adapter, or the Universal Adapter, indicated by a black body. It accepts any probe with M4 threads. Unlike with the standard iProbes the user must manually enter the probe tip into the driver. 

Who Is It For?

  • If you use multiple probe tips when not regularly required
  • If you want flexibility to create custom sensors when needed

What are the Standard Accessories from FARO®?

  • (21765-003) 1MM Ball Probe
  • (21765-004) 2MM Ball Probe
  • (21765-001) 3MM Ball Probe
  • (21765-002) 6MM Ball Probe
  • (21765-005) 8MM Ball Probe
  • (21766-001) 10MM Ball Probe
  • (21766-002) 12MM Ball Probe
  • (21564) Point Probe
  • (21563-001) 50MM Ceramic Probe Extension
  • (21563-002) 100MM Ceramic Probe Extension
  • (21563-003) 50MM Carbon Fiber Probe Extension
  • (21563-004) 100MM Carbon Fiber Probe Extension
  • (21562) 21MM Extension Joint

Extension Adapter

21460, the extension adapter, accepts threads at the head and the rear interfaces of the threads on the Quantum series handle (see right). It is part of the new Quantum extension kit, 21604. You must manually enter the size of the probe tip within the Probe Management dialog box.

Who Is It For?

  • If you have a probe tip with extensions longer than 100mm
  • If you have a legacy probe extension kit
  • If you have M6 threaded probes

TrackArm Adapter

21583, or the TrackArm Adapter, is the kinematic adapter used for location of the TrackArm. It has M6 threads, but has a hard-coded diameter of 7/8”. It does not support use of M6 threaded probes.

Who Is It For?

  • If you own a Quantum series FaroArm and a FARO Laser Tracker and you want to implement our Super 6DOF solution


TP-20 Adapter

20735, or the TP-20 Adapter, is the kinematic adapter used to communicate to a Renishaw TP-20 probe. You must manually enter the size of the probe tip into the Probe Management dialog box.

Who Is It For?

  • If you want to purchase or use an existing Renishaw TP-20
