Adding an industrial-strength BlueTooth Digital Readout to your hobby shop is now easier than ever: TouchDRO app puts flexible and powerful DRO at your fingertips. Using one of the BlueTooth adaopter boards listed below, it can be interfaced with most DRO scales available on the market.

All PCBs used in the mixed scale kit are fabricated in the USA (Oregon); iGaging and Quadrature boards are assembled in Oregon using name brand components. I personally test each and every assembled board (and the MCU that ships with the kit). By purchasing genuine TouchDRO boards from this site you will support the project, as well as good paying American manufacturing jobs.

If you're not sure which BlueTooth DRO controller is right for your setup, please refer to this post for more details.

*The boards use standard round 5x2.1mm power jacks (same as Arduino UNO, etc.). Any power supply in the range between 7V and 15V that provides at least 200 mA will work. I recommend finding an "old style" heavy wall wart (rather than a switching power supply), since they provide mains isolation.
