Do you have a mill and a lathe running DRO but only one digital readout box? You can purchase a second DRO box with a power supply and attach it to your second machine, so you won’t have to switch it out and reset your input readings.
220-240 Volt Electrical Current
The DRO power supply automatically switches from 120V to 240V for countries with 220-240 volt electrical current. You may need to use a wall socket adapter if you use the power supply in a country outside North America.
Upgraded DRO Chip
Beginning August 1st, 2021, all DROs will ship with an upgraded chip. This new chip upgrade allows our Digital Readout to function with our ball screw machines as well as our standard leadscrew machines. We also programmed some upgrades based on customer feedback, like using Metric on Inch machines and using Inch on Metric machines.
The new DRO chip has six different modes to choose from based on the machine type, e.g., mill, lathe, leadscrew, or ball screw, and your preference of either inch or metric display on the DRO.
For more detailed information on setting up the modes for DRO, please see the DRO Mode Instructions.
NOTE: You must make sure you have the correct RPM tach sticker for your machine. Use a 6-pulse (P/N 81510) tach sticker if your machine is a leadscrew machine or a 5-pulse tach sticker (P/N P/N 68060) if your machine is a ball screw machine.
Always wear safety glasses when operating machine tools.
