DRO100 Digital Readout

The most cost-effective, entry-level digital readout system that incorporates display technology, the DRO100 offers features and versatile software. Designed and manufactured in the USA, ACU-RITE readouts are the first choice of machine tool builders and users alike.

Dynamic Zoom

  • The currently moving axis can be geographically highlighted.
  • In “dynamic zoom” mode, the position value is zoomed to its maximum size depending on the number of digits.
  • This greatly improves legibility—especially from a great distance.

Installation Guide

  • When you switch on the digital readout for the first time, the DRO100 supports you with an installation guide.
  • You are led step by step through the most important settings until the device is ready for operation.

 

Day/Night Switching

  • Depending on the ambient-light conditions at the machine, you can switch the screen of the DRO100 to a light or dark background.
