Which kit to use for Warco scales
#1
I have some scales http://www.warco.co.uk/digital-readouts-...lathe.html, but am not sure which protocol they use and thus which of the interface kits/options I would need to use, can anyone advise me on the correct items to order?

For info I have been using this display http://www.warco.co.uk/digital-readouts-...douts.html but it seems to have dies so I am looking to replace it with something that will offer me more features but at a fraction of the cost of a full system for now, in the future I may upgrade the scales but I may wait until I replace my mill.

Just an update, I used mixed scale kit as I may upgrade the scales in the future, I set the links as though they were iGaging scales. I took apart the old display and that had information on the PCB that enabled me to work out the pinout.
 
The picture shows what I did, I have used standard shielded USB cables, in the box I used a PC USB backplane with new connectors wired to match the headers on the PCB, the box is rather large but it was the easiest to get hold of.
