Beta LaserMike 2020 Laser BenchMike FlashCable® Gage Interface
Send data to our GageMux® gage interface or other Digimatic input devices
The LaserMike 2020 Single-Plane SPC Processor performs high speed non-contact measurements along one plane and is able to gather comprehensive Statistical Process Control (SPC) data. This FlashCable® gage interface is engineered to change the output on the Beta LaserMike 2020 laser based micrometer measuring processor to an output in a Digimatic format. The 25-Pin male connector on the Advanced Systems & Designs FlashCable® connects directly to the female connector on the Beta LaserMike 2020. This gage interface cable is designed to work with our GageMux® gage interface or other similar devices that recognize the Mitutoyo Digimatic signal.
The FlashCable® receives power from the GageMux® gage interface. When using devices other than the GageMux® gage interface, make sure pin 9 of the 10-pin connector provides a 5 volts DC supply to theFlashCable® interface cable. The LED on the FlashCable® turns GREEN when properly connected to our GageMux® gage interface or other similar devices. 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 PRT key on the Beta LaserMike 2020 Laser BenchMike when properly set up
Using a footswitch on the FlashCable® (not included)
Using our 300-1S in-line handswitch
Using the footswitch on the GageMux® USB (or equivalent triggering method on similar devices)
Sending a gage read command from the computer to the gage
Every FlashCable® gage interface comes with a detailed operating manual. Using a special utility, the FlashCable® communication parameters may be changed or reconfigured per requirements for both the FlashCable® and the Beta LaserMike 2020. Advanced Systems & Designs typically set the FlashCable® gage interface to the default settings on the Beta LaserMike 2020. Refer to the Beta LaserMike Model 2020 Single-Plane processor operator manual for additional information on properly setting it for external communication.
