Retrofiting an old big milling machine

The scale is glass because i saw the glass inside.
I found the VCC & GND from TL084CN 4&11 pins.
TL084CN has populated 1&7&8pin but not 14pin.
Are these 3 outputs the U1 U2 U3 ?
The remaining one wire is the 7.5V ?
That is the usage of 7.5V ?

The TL084 is an operational amplifier so it needs a positive and a negative power supply voltage and a common ground for both of them, so it needs a + and a - 7.5V measured from it's ground in your case.
That looks to be derived from 15V supply in your case.
It can be done simply by using 2 capacitors to quite complicated voltage regulators.

The schematic shows +15V 0V GND +7.5V
If understand correct the +15V is the +VCC the 0V is the -VCC and the 7.5V is the GND(but the TL084CN has no GND only +-VCC) right ?
I have a symmetric linear power supply +-15VDC/1A but i think the is not suitable for this case...
I need a symmetric +-7.5VDC right ?
What max current is good for powering 3 scales ?

Just a guess but they should not use more than 50mA or 0.05A. They rarely use more.
