KBC Tools & Machinery has announced that it is offering Digital Read Outs (DRO’s) with absolute encoders from igaging.
The Read Outs allow users to read the position where they have stopped machining even when power has been turned off for the night or lost during a storm or electrical shutoff. With an incremental DRO, in such situations readings reset to zero no matter where the user is in the machining path.
Igaging EZ-View DRO Plus Digital Scales with Remote Read Outs for horizontal or vertical measurements, with absolute encoders, are available with measurable ranges of 0-6”/150mm, 0-12”/300mm, 0-24”/600mm, 0-36”/900mm from KBC. They have a resolution of .0005”/.01mm/1/128”.
Igaging EZ-View DRO Plus Digital Scales with Remote Read Out Kits come with on/off button, present button, hold button, origin button, a 76” remote cable length, mounting brackets, 3V CR2032 battery, and an articulating arm to allow for stacking multiple displays. The six-key LCD display units come with magnetic strips to allow for quick and magnetic attachment to steel surfaces.
The EZ-View DRO has SPC/USB data output, and can easily be attached by an SPC/USB cable data kit or a wireless data kit, (available as optional accessories), to your computer to log your output without antiquated paper based log books. An AC power supply is also available as an optional accessory.
The igaging EZ-View DRO Plus Digital Scales with Remote Read Out Kits and absolute encoders start at $126.95 CDN for a 6” kit from KBC.
