Product Description

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.

The MGI is available in two models…
• Genesis MGI-D (digital) with 4 digital ports
• Genesis MGI-C (combined) with 2 digital and 2 analog ports

Automatic Gage Recognition (AGR)…
• True plug and play
• Automatically recognizes the gage and applies proper communications routines
• No user set up is required
• Uses low-cost gage cables

The MGI interfaces with hundreds of gages from a wide variety of manufacturers including…
• Micrometers
• Height, thickness and laser gages
• Hardness testers
• Calipers
• Weight scales
• Torque wrenches
• Surface analyzers
• Indicators
• Comparator displays
• Genesis MGI


Analog gage ports provide excellent resolution through a 12-bit (plus sign) A/D converter. Data from a column gage with a full-scale resolution of ±.010 will resolve to 2.5 millionths of an inch. The MGI with analog capabilities also provides…
• Reference voltages to drive variable resistance or strain gage devices
• Easy configuration of gage signals to MGI requirements with ASDQMS interface cables
• Inputs configured for single ended, dual or differential operation
• “First Peak” and “Total Peak” readings from analog inputs (useful in torque applications)

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

ASDQMS offers a number of statistical software packages to support data collection and analysis. Operating on Windows based PCs, ASDQMS offers SPC1+ Enterprise and SPC1+ Navigator software. Software I/O specifications are also available for interfacing the MGI’s direct gage input to individual software packages.

• Input voltage: ±5 mV minimum
• Resolution: ±4000 counts at ± full scale voltage
• Excitation voltage: +2500mV ±5 mV at 0-80 mA, -2500 mV ± at 0-80 mA

Output to status and control devices port…
• Connect external accessories including earphones and status lights or control signals

Optional power…
• Internal rechargeable NiCad batteries or external AC charger/adapter (12-14 hours usage)

• 9 ¾” x 8 ½” x 2”
