SmartCable™ RS232 Gage Interface with Mitutoyo Digimatic Input
This single input RS232 SmartCable™ gage interface led the industry in offering users a single input option at a time when manufacturers wanted you to buy more ports at each station. It was the first single input gage interface, originally designed over 15 years ago, and is still going strong. The SmartCable™ single gage interface connects standard Mitutoyo gages (indicators, micrometers, calipers, etc.) and other gages that mimic the Mitutoyo Digimatic signal, to a computer - gage cable not included. Gages available from Chicago Dial Indicator (CDI), Mahr Federal, Ono Sokki and others have digital outputs compatible with the Digimatic signal. The output of this SmartCable™ gage interface is through a standard 9-pin female RS-232 serial connection that quickly configures itself.
Advanced Systems & Designs has made it easy to connect digital calipers, micrometers, indicators or any other gages directly to computers. Readings are triggered using the gage send button, an external footswitch (connected via external foot-switch jack) or host request. The SmartCable™ gage interface is designed with the harsh shop-floor environment in mind for use in any SPC data collection system. Six foot cable length.
