The Cutting Edge: Connect Any Gage to Send Data as a Keyboard Entry!

The Cutting Edge: Finally You Can Connect Any Gage

and Display Data as Keyboard Entry on Your PC!

ASDQMS’s patent pending SmartCable USB with Keyboard Output has revolutionized the Quality Control
field by simplifying and streamlining data collection.

The Universal SmartCable USB with Keyboard Output makes it easy to connect and collect data from
any single RS232 device (scales, balances, force gages, calipers, bar code scanners, height gages and
more!) and enter it into your PC easily and quickly. You can change any of the RS232 parameters yourself,
including the specific parsing, baud rates, request commands and more.

As with Advanced Systems & Designs, Inc.'s (ASDQMS) other products, NO SOFTWARE WEDGE or
configuration is required for our patent pending SmartCable USB with Keyboard Output! The simple
plug and play set up allows you to enter data into any Windows application (Microsoft Excel, Word,
Internet Explorer or any web application) without any complicated software packages. ASDQMS’s patent
pending SmartCable USB with Keyboard Output makes your RS232 (or any brand of gage) data look like it
was entered using a standard keyboard, eliminating painstaking manual data entry, saving valuable time and
money!

ASDQMS’s patent pending SmartCable USB with Keyboard Output adds functionality to virtually any
existing gage by allowing data collection in either static mode (instantaneous reading) or dynamic mode
(MIN/MAX/TIR). Users can now trigger gage reading using the onboard pushbutton, footswitch, or host
command. The best feature of all is that we use a common driver which comes with Windows and we draw
power from the PC; the SmartCable gets its power via the PC’s USB serial port or Mitutoyo compatible
systems, making it ideal for portable (roving) data collection (optional external power supply is available).
The SmartCable USB with Keyboard Output comes in a cool blue translucent case, or black if requested.
