The ACU-RITE VUE is a simple digital readout for 2- or 3-axes. It is mainly used as a position display unit for simple infeed and positioning tasks on manually-operated milling, grinding, drilling and boring machines and lathes. The clear and unambiguous display of the current position value on the large, clearly structured LCD screen makes working with the VUE easy and reliable.

The position display unit has a robust housing and a splash-proof membrane keyboard.
