HEIDENHAIN Debuts ACU-RITE’s Bluetooth droPWR

HEIDENHAIN, Schaumburg, Illinois, presents the new Bluetooth droPWR by ACU-RITE. The droPWR is a first-of-its-kind system to enable an iPad® tablet to become a digital readout (DRO), doing everything an ACU-RITE DRO can except without cables between tablet and machine tool.

Bluetooth technology along with an IBT interface box in the droPWR system allows connection to multiple machine configurations in one tablet including for milling, turning and grinding machines with up to six axes. Designed to be simple and functional, this tablet DRO can be moved and used with various machines, making it perfect for many production environments such as small shops and students in shop class. The new droPWR system includes the new software, an IBT interface box suitable for the machine tool and relevant encoders/brackets if needed. A tablet with iOS 15 or greater is required.  And with its simple onboarding configuration set up, a user can quickly establish connection to its intended machine(s).
