We have an extensive range of digital readout display consoles, including standard LED displays or full colour LCD graphical with menu driven displays . All consoles are feature packed whilst still being cost effective for hobby and model engineering workshops. A PC based DRO interface, that connects via USB to a Windows tablet, laptop or desktop PC is also available.
The consoles come in a selection of single, 2 axis, 3 axis and 4 axis versions. An axis summing interface can also be installed to combine two encoder outputs, for example the quill and knee travel. Our recommendation is to consider future upgrade, a 3 axis console will function with only 2 encoders connected. This would enable an addition of the 3rd encoder or summing device at a later date.
Dedicated consoles are available that offer either mill or lathe functions. Alternatively universal models combine functions for both, allowing for a single console format for the entire workshop that can be transferred between machines.
Please feel free to contact our technical staff for further advice, or to arrange an on-site install by one of our engineers (UK only).
