Hobby Digital Readout Systems
With our years of experience supplying digital readout equipment, together with our extensive product range including a variety of compact profile options for the smaller machine tools, we are sure to provide a cost effective DRO solution to hobbyists and model engineers alike.
Installing a digital readout to any machine tool will transform operation and accuracy; removing the requirement to read directly from the machine dials. Providing a clear easy to read display offering metric or inch conversion. Fitting an encoder to measure physical travel removes many of the issues caused by backlash and worn lead-screws, along with improved repeatability and time saving.
Console options include traditional LED displays or full colour LCD graphical menu driven displays and a PC interface is also available. The linear and rotary encoder sensor types include capacitive (typically battery powered), optical glass and magnetic encoders.
Please see Industrial Readout Systems category for encoders over 1 metre reading length and higher resolution encoders. Please also feel free to contact our technical staff for further advice, or to arrange an on-site install by one of our engineers (UK only)
- The components that make up the magnetic encoders, are available separately. Offering a solution for a wide range of non-standard measuring and position feedback applications.
