droPWR support

Watch for droPWR in the App Store, due to be released in the fall of 2022, only for Apple® products.

Dynamic zoom

The position value of the currently moving axis is zoomed to its maximum size. Greatly improves legibility — especially from a distance.

Light /dark switching

Depending on the ambient-light conditions at the machine, the screen can be switched to a light or dark background.

Configuration guide

When launching the software for the first time, a configuration guide provides step-by-step instructions until the device ready for operation.

Split screen

Allows for multitasking or having more than one application displayed at a time, the readout application on one side and part print on the other.
