BW Electronics Sensors - kengw - 08-12-2016

Hi
Been researching the most unobtrusive scales to fit to my Myford.
This site makes a draw wire encoder http://bwelectronics.co.uk/modular-dros/.
The sensors will
  • Sensors provide a continuous position output as a serial data stream which, with suitable buffering, can go to an RS232 serial port.
  • Sensors can be fully remotely controlled via a bi-directional serial link connected to a display or a PC.
Would these work with Touch DRO?

Hi,

TouchDRO works fine on my Myford ML7R lathe, using wire encoders.

Sorry in Dutch.
I presented an English text to Model Engineer's Workshop Magazine, but they didn't publish it.
I do not know why.

Hi,

Today, Model Engineers' Workshop magazine finally told me that they will publish my articles in an English translation. However, due to a long queue of contributions, they will only appear in autumn 2021!

Hi,

Finally, Model Engineers' Workshop Magazine (Nr 305 July 2021), editor MyTimeMedia Ltd. published my contribution in an English translation. That is earlier than announced.

Title: "A digital Readout for a Myford Series 7 Lathe, Jacques Van Damme uses wire encoders instead of digital scales".
5 pages long, it explains how TouchDRO is used in combination with wire encoders on my Myford ML7R lathe. Works wireless using bluetooth, readout is visible on a tablet or smartphone.
