FlashCable® Gage Interface for Mark-10 Series 5 or 7 Digital Force Gauge
Sends the displayed reading to our GageMux® or similar devices
This FlashCable® gage interface is engineered to change the output on the Mark-10 Series 5 or 7 Digital Force Gauge to an output in a Digimatic format. The 15-pin HD male connector on the Advanced Systems & Designs FlashCable® connects to Mark-10 Force Gauge 15-pin input connector. This FlashCable® gage interface is designed to work with our GageMux® or other similar devices that recognize the Mitutoyo Digimatic signal.
The FlashCable® gage interface does not obtain any power from the gauge. When connected to the GageMux®, pin 9 of the 10-pin input port provides the power to the FlashCable®. If using devices, other than the GageMux®, make sure pin 9 of the 10-pin connector provides a 5VDC supply to the FlashCable® gage interface.
When the FlashCable® gage interface is connected to the GageMux®, the LED on the FlashCable® turns GREEN. This indicates that the FlashCable® gage interface is connected properly. The LED turns RED when the data is being sent or a data request is triggered.
The data transfer can be triggered using any of the following methods:
Using the "data" send button on the Mark-10 Series 5 or 7 Digital Force Gauge
Using the Footswitch on the GageMux® USB (or equivalent triggering method on similar devices
Sending a gage read command from the computer to the Mark-10 Series 5 Digital Force Gauge
Using our 300-1S in-line handswitch
Using a Footswitch on the FlashCable® (not included)
A detailed operation manual is included with this FlashCable® gage interface. The communication parameters can be changed and reconfigured per requirements for both the FlashCable® gage interface and the Mark-10 Digital Force Gauge.
