Any one see a 2 axis DRO for a lathe or mill that has a serial port to read position when needed?
Accurite used to offer that option, But I believe it was the two axis strobed out on a parallel port, but I am not sure whether you can order it on current models.
With serial, it would need a buffer to store the positions when requested/strobed by the host,and then read out.
In any case, it would most likely be an ordered option on most DRO's.
