The ASDQMS GageMux® Universal Gage Interface Makes Data Collection Easy

Posted by

Advanced Systems & Designs (ASDQMS) is an Ohio-based technology company that serves the manufacturing industry. Our customers range from small to large manufacturing operations including automotive, aerospace, electronics, pharmaceutical and agribusiness. 


We make all of your gages and RS232 devices speak the same language. With over 25 years experience in manufacturing, quality management, and data collection integration, Advanced Systems & Designs understands the opportunities associated with inspection data collection and acquisition hardware. Whether data is from single or multiple sources, Advanced Systems & Designs integrates customer hardware and software into a seamless Statistical Process Control (SPC) solution.

An example of this is our GageMux® USB+RS232+Keyboard. It is compatible with all SPC software programs including explorer based programs. The GageMux® universal gage interface with Keyboard output connects directly to a computer and can send data to any Windows program (Excel, Word, Internet Explorer) without using a software wedge. It is simple to setup for your individual data collection needs. The GageMux® USB+RS232+Keyboard will make the gage readings appear as if they were typed in using a standard keyboard. At the same time, this GageMux® can be easily configured to work the same as our standard GageMux® USB+RS232.

The Advanced Systems & Designs GageMux® USB has revolutionized data collection and storage. It allows users to connect hundreds of different types of measuring devices and gages to an automated data collection system. This GageMux® USB gage interface is available with two (2), four (4), or eight (8) inputs, can daisy-chain up to 500 gages, and reads directly from Mitutoyo gages or other Digimatic output gage cables such as our Digimatic output FlashCable®. All of our GageMux® USB provide configurable options using rotary switches or commands stored in E memory. The GageMux® USB has LED indicators that communicate to the user if a reading is sent to the computer, if a gage is reading incorrectly, as well as which output mode you have configured (Keyboard, USB or RS232).

As with our other gage interfaces, the GageMux® USB+RS232+Keyboard requires no confusing software wedges or other intermediary software. The GageMux® USB has a simple, user friendly setup – your computer automatically installs the USB driver when the GageMux® is plugged into your computer USB port---just plug and play!

If you choose to use the GageMux® as a RS232 9-pin output device, simply change the internal switch settings, connect a serial cable, and the GageMux® will send data to your computer RS232 COM port. No need for additional drivers or messy external cable converters.
