Newall's NMS300 Digital Readout Packages set the standard for reliability, value and ease of use.
Newall's inductive encoders are simple to install and include suitable brackets for the Myford Super 7 and Connoisseur 20" between centre lathe.
Reliable and dependable inductive encoder technology with an IP67 rating - All electronic and measuring components are sealed from the environment
Continually provides accurate readings even under the harshest work shop conditions. Tolerant to shock and vibration.
No cleaning or maintenance required.
The NMS300 console is supplied with mounting arm and fixing hardware. The NMS300 is available in a panel mount configuration. The unique mounting design was specially engineered to make for a clean, seamless look.
Console functions include: Absolute / Incremental operation, Axis Pre-set / Zero reset, Inch/mm conversion, Multiple language support, Radius/Diameter Readings, Tool Offset Library (50) and Taper Calculation.
Lathe not included. DRO kit only.
Newall has specialized for more than 40 years in providing the machine tool and other machinery and production industries with leading edge technologies that increase productivity and machine tool efficiency. The need for a reliable and highly accurate linear encoder led Newall in 1973 to develop its world renowned Spherosyn linear encoder. Spherosyn incorporates a truly unique design in that none of the electrical or measuring components are exposed to the harsh workshop environment.

Shipping was fast and everything arrived in perfect condition. The encoders, read heads and display unit are all excellent quality, however this kit as supplied won’t fit on a Myford super 7 without modification. The problem is with read heads (the block that slides along the encoder scale) which are too tall to fit under the guards. The read heads supplied (both microsyn 300) are 25mm tall whereas the read heads shown fitted to a Myford on this website and in the photos supplied with the kit are different and are only 20mm thick (as per the drawing supplied with the kit). As the cross slide on my Myford is an inch thick I will either have to fit the encoder without the guard or modify/remake the guard to allow enough room to fit the read head under with space for clearance and adjustment. This is a shame as I will not be able to have the guard flush with the cross slide as shown on the website. I’ll also have to remake some of the mounting brackets to lower the read head on the carriage to fit under the guard at the back, or run it without the guard (which I really don’t want to do). There are a lot of holes that will need to be drilled and tapped on the lathe itself which is not really a problem but it will take some time to figure out exactly where these need to go after I have modified the mounting brackets (there are no instructions with the kit for where to put these holes). I expect that once I get all this fitted up it will be great but this “kit” is going to be more of an engineering project than I was expecting and the final results will not be as clean looking as the installation shown on the website. I went with Newall unit because I have heard good things about them but, on reflection, I think if I had gone with the Machine DRO branded kit I would be up and running already. (Posted on 14/08/2018)
