Heidenhain DROs DRO100 DRO203 DRO300Click image to enlarge

A new line of three digital readout (DRO) products for the machine tool marketplace is available under the Acu-Rite brand from Heidenhain.

The new DRO100/203/300 models all support many new software features, including an “Installation Guide” that appears at first-time power up.
The DRO100 unit has been designed as a functional yet very simple digital readout that can be easily understood by the operator.
The DRO203 offers all the basic functions of the entry level DRO100 plus common features for both milling and turning applications, such as bolt-hole calculations for milling and vectoring/ taper ratio for turning.
The DRO300 high end model is available in three and four axis variants and is programmable. The DRO300 is the only unit offering the connector for external switching functions. One completely new innovation is the option of expanding the DRO300 to serve as a six axis digital readout.
Some overall new features on these DROs include the “Dynamic Zoom” where, once activated, the display values for the axis currently being moved are maximally enlarged. The user can immediately see which axis is currently in motion.
Other new software features common to all include improved file management where users can save and/or load firmware, configuration files, graphic files and instruction manuals. Also, a simpler user management system has been introduced, and up to nine users can operate the DRO203 and DRO300 units.
