The Lathe works in 3 Main modes:

1.Manual Mode:
Only Z- feed support
DRO Support

2.Power Mode:
XZ -feed support
DRO Support
Semi automated functions like make Chamfer/Fillets/Cutting
Homing and Goto functions

3.G-code Mode:
Reads Gcode from microSD disc and executes it
Operates in Closed loop with DRO

Digital Read out system (DRO):
Diameter or X-Coordinates
Price 50$ per Axis (Max330 mm)
Keypad input of Zero/New data (X-Z-D)
Resolution 0.01mm
Uses modified WIXEY remote digital readout (Kit ~ 50$ each)
For other applications it can connect direct to PC USB as a ASII com port
Communicates with Lathe Controller (EMC protected) via plastic fiber
No electrical ground or signal connections for EMC protection

Extern Power Module:
48V 10A for BLDC Spindle & 24V 10A for Stepper
Separated Power Supply no Mains in the Lathe

Controller Opto-Barrier to Drive Boards
