View Full Version : Spindle position sensor

23-03-2014, 06:05 AM

I've been trying to source a spindle index sensor and board and have so far found two that appear suitable, one from CNC4PC and the other by CNCdoctor, as I would prefer to buy from a UK supplier I tried to place an order with the latter, but without success, are they still trading? I would also be pleased to learn of any other sources for a suitable sensor board.

Personally I wouldn't bother with a seperate board, as the only benefit is it makes wiring things up a bit easier. -
All you need is an optical slot sensor - Slotted Optical Switches - 1 (http://uk.rs-online.com/web/c/displays-optoelectronics/optocouplers-photodetectors-photointerrupters/slotted-optical-switches/?applied-dimensions=4294885523,4294535089&esid=cl_4294967294,cl_4294957191,cl_4294957471,cl_ 4294955911,cl_4294955946,cl_4294957569&m=1)

They can also be had of ebay for not much money.

Thank you for your speedy reply, but I was asking if cncdoctor are still trading as I would like to place an order with them, or locate another UK company marketing a similar product.

There are no contact details so that puts me off right away, I would send them an enquiry and if no reply next day then forget it.
