  • Allows for multitasking or having more than one application displayed at a time, the readout application on one side and part print on the other.

  • Dynamic zoom

  • The position value of the currently moving axis is zoomed to its maximum size. Greatly improves legibility — especially from a distance.

  • Light /dark switching

  • Depending on the ambient-light conditions at the machine, the screen can be switched to a light or dark background.

  • ​Configuration guide

  • ​When launching the software for the first time, a configuration guide provides step-by-step instructions until the device ready for operation.

TURNPWR-large-display.jpg

The TURNPWR lathe control

  • TURNPWR is a workshop-oriented turning control that enables the user to program conventional machining operations right at the machine.

  • It is designed for turning machine tools with up to two axes.

  • TURNPWR was developed to satisfy the wants and needs of lathe machinists where manual and automated operation are both useful and needed.

  • TURNPWR promises to enable the user to maximize throughput by significantly reducing setup time, scrap and other non-productive operations.

ACU-RITE® SENC 150 & SENC 50

SENC 150 SENC 50
SENC-150-header.jpg

What is the difference between the SENC 150 and SENC 50?

  • The SENC 150 and SENC 50 linear encoders are very similar.

  • The SENC 150 is available in a wider range of measuring lengths, 75mm-3,075mm vs. 25mm-500mm.

  • The SENC 150 also has a slightly more rugged body, with a weight of 0.7 kg/meter of measuring length compared to 0.3 kg/meter.

The SENC 150 from ACU-RITE is the ideal scale for all applications.

  • The compact and robust design, and the numerous possibilities for mounting, make it ideal for retrofitting.

  • The slight dimensions and high accuracies of this ball-bearing guided encoder, which uses the reflected light method, are ideal prerequisites that can be used in metrology applications.

  • Robust design

  • Resolutions from 0.5 µm to 5 µm

  • Output signals: TTL

  • Measuring lengths from 75 mm/2" to 3075 mm/120"

  • Distance-coded reference marks

SENC 50 linear encoder

With its extremely compact dimensions, the SENC 50 linear encoder is perfect for many different types of applications and situations. It is especially suitable if the installation space is limited or otherwise restricted.

  • Compact dimensions

  • Resolutions from 0.5 µm to 5 µm

  • Output signals: TTL

  • Measuring lengths from 25mm/1" to 500mm/20"

  • Distance-coded reference marks

DRO 100

ACU-RITE® DRO100

The ACU-RITE® DRO100 is the entry level digital readout system.  

What is the difference between DRO100 and DRO203?
 

  • In the 100 series, DRO101 works with one axis, DRO102 two axes and DRO103 three axes.

  • The DRO203 model works with two or three axes from A to Z and Z0.

  • The DRO100 series provides the most popular readout functions.

  • The DRO203 provides those, plus convenient milling- and turning-specific functions.
