Scales

Created by: Administrator, Last modification: Fri 31 of Jul, 2015 (23:09 UTC) by Lester Caine

With the expanding range of interface kits, we are looking to provide a standard set of options for scales. All kits will be provided with a standard pin out on the Mini-DIN connector, and so scales can be moved from one project to another. Protecting your investment. To further assist, miniDIN extension leads are also available if required, but glass scales tend to come with a 3mt armored cable, so moving from a Digital Readout Bar setup to a Glass Scale will probably require a change of cables anyway.

Digital Readout Bars - Horizontal & Vertical

Due to shipping costs we recommend buying the scales direct
Arc Euro Trade - Measurement - Digital Readout

Quadrature Glass Scales

We are currently setting up a number of options for glass scales.
One source is Machine-DRO who supply a range of Chinese manufactured scales and have a slim unit that is smaller than the Jenix.
We can supply these units as part of a kit package, at the same price as Allendale, but will include the QCC100 9WayD Cable Link Free of Charge
( Shopping basket page to come - please get part numbers from Machine-DRO and eMail an order to me )
Details on what is supplied with the Machine-DRO scales are being developed here
The manufacturers site is found here Sino KA Series.
Alternative glass scales are available from Jenix - Jenix Linear Scale Series.
