REFURBISHED (p/n 159280-11) Battery Powered Genesis Multi-Gage Interface (MGI)
The Genesis Multi-Gage Interface (MGI) streamlines the data collection process
Users collect data from a wide range of electronic gages and convert the signals to a common RS232 output. Measured data goes directly to PCs for use with statistical process control software.
Genesis MGIs have four gage ports and can be daisy-chained to increase the number of ports at any one gaging station. In addition, a bayonet connector provides convenient foot-switch operation when needed. Up to 32 gages can be interfaced to a single PC serial port in any analog or digital combination.

Interfaced to a PC MGIs provide direct gage input for a PC inspection station. They can also be used in conjunction with Genesis data collectors to provide additional gage ports.
Aside from simple gage readings, the MGI offers…
- Continuous gage reads (as long as the footswitch is depressed) with MIN, MAX, TIR and continuous average output capability
- Sequential readings of multiple gages (ideal for gage fixture applications)
- Parametric selection using a specific measured value or several values from a multiple parameter gage (e.g., comparator with multiple axis display, force gage with MIN and MAX readings, etc.)
- The MGI can be used at a fixed station, operating on an AC adapter/charger
