Board Behavoir
#3
I played with the caliper-type scales for a bit. I even found a "cheap" source for the special cable. Turned out that the Mixed Scale board doesn't properly interpret the "BIN6" protocol that they output. It doesn't parse negative numbers, so even if you get them "working", they won't work properly. I don't know if Yuriy has gotten around to fixing it (Or will ever try at this point. It's a resource allocation thing.). An oscilloscope is tremendously helpful in diagnosing these things.

So, trying to cut my losses, I got incremental Shahe-type aluminum scales from Shars. They work quite well after adding a power supply decoupling capacitor inside the read head. They also made for a much nicer installation on my lathe (search YouTube for "Logan Lathe Model 200 TouchDRO Installation").

I've posted details elsewhere. Search on my name and see if any of it is helpful.
