We stock a range of adaptor cables and interfaces to allow simple replacement of damaged/faulty existing equipment for most DRO manufacturers. Most adaptors plug directly in line with no modifications to the existing equipment, keeping both the console and encoders standard. This allows for easy upgrade to M-DRO equipment should another part need replacing in the future. Our adaptor cables are suitable for Acu-rite, Anilam, Easson, Electronica, Fagor, Heidenhain, Knuth, Meister, Mitutoyo, Newall, Sargon, Sino and many other leading brands. Please contact our technical staff for assistance.
There are three industrial standard output signals that can be commonly found. These include TTL quadrature square wave (including EIA422 and RS422), 1 volt peak to peak (1Vpp) and 11uA Sinusoidal. Interfaces are available that will convert the signal of your existing console or encoder. The summing interface combines the output of quadrature encoders into a single quadrature output. Applications include combined mill quill with knee travel or lathe compound travel with main carriage travel.
