SmartCable™ USB Keyboard Gage Interface for Mettler Toledo AM / PM / SM Series Balance with Data Interface
Send data directly to Excel---No Software Wedge Required
The Mettler Toledo AM/PM/SM balances are fitted with a bidirectional data interface for use with peripherals. The balance can transmit weighing results to a peripheral device using serial RS232 communication. This Mettler Toledo balance works well with our SmartCable™ Keyboard gage interface allowing us to send a data request to the balance to receive data.
This SmartCable™ Keyboard gage interface is engineered to change the output on the Mettler AM/PM/SM Balance and send data directly to Excel without adding a software wedge. The special 15-Pin male connector on the Advanced Systems & Designs SmartCable™ connects directly to the female connector on the Mettler Toledo bi-directional data interface---no additional cables required.
The output of the SmartCable™ Keyboard gage interface is a standard USB 2.0 keyboard signal. Connecting the SmartCable™ USB Keyboard with its built-in keyboard wedge to a computer will allow the SmartCable™ interface cable to be identified as a keyboard device that allows the Mettler AM/PM Series balance send data to any Microsoft Windows application - no software wedge required.
The SmartCable™ Keyboard will make the Mettler Toledo AM/PM Series Balance readings appear as if they were typed in using a standard keyboard - eliminates data collection errors. If you want to collect data into a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet or Explorer based SPC software programs, simply select the cell where you want the data to appear and trigger a reading.
