  • DRO Help ? Displaying 2X Distance Traveled??

    Hi,

    I have a Sino DRO on my mill and it seems to be accurate but the display is showing double the actual distance traveled ? I see a 1/2 key and tried to correct it with that but no luck. The manual is not much help either. Anyone know how to fix this ?

    Thanks,
    Kevin

      That did the trick. Thanks !

      I won't try and understand the logic of how decreasing the resolution causes the travel display distance to be double ???

        This might be obvious but do you have the manual?

        You may also be in lathe diameter mode (double reading) instead of radius. I know you are on a mill, but I think I can set that option on any axis on the DRO.

        There should also be a "scale factor" setting in the settings menu that you can adjust to make it read any distance you set it up for. If your internal battery is dead, it will reset the dro to default settings every time you turn it off and forget the "setup" that was initially done.

          I have the manual but the English is pretty bad and I can't understand what they are talking about through most of it.

          I set the resolution from 10um back to 5um and that fixed it.
