Denford easiturn opto spindle encoder replacement?
« on: December 12, 2013, 06:16:55 PM »
I have a denford easiturn and i think the original opto spindle encoder is up the spout. I was looking to just directly replace it. I read a post by Hood that recommended the Optek OPB917B.  Does anyone know if this opto will work on the denford? (It's the one with the encoder disk on the spindle that has lots of holes around the edge and then a single slot inside that one - the one mach3 uses).

Can anyone point me in the direction of a circuit diagram for the Optek OPB917B that replicates the original denford opto encoder albeit just using the single slot on the disk.

Thanks in advance - rim
