Product Description

Z-Mike 1200 Laser Micrometer Gage Interface

Send data directly to Excel---No Software Wedge Required

This Advanced Systems & Designs - ASDQMS SmartCable USB Keyboard single gage interface connects the Z-Mike 1200 or 4000 Series Laser BenchMike to a computer and sends data to Excel or other Explorer based SPC programs. Connects the Z-Mike 1200 / 4000 Series Laser BenchMike to the SmartCable Keyboard gage interface using a 9-pin male cable connector---no additional cables required. The output of the SmartCable Keyboard is a standard USB 2.0 keyboard signal.

Connecting the SmartCable Keyboard with its built-in keyboard wedge to a computer will allow the SmartCable USB gage interface to be identified as a keyboard device that can send data to any Microsoft Windows application (like Excel) or explorer based SPC program - no complicated software wedge required. The SmartCable Keyboard gage interface will make the Z-Mike 1200 or 4000 Series Laser BenchMike Laser readings appear as if they were typed in using a standard keyboard - eliminates SPC data collection errors. If you want to collect SPC data into a Microsoft Excel or other spreadsheet applications, simply select the cell where you want the data to appear.

Readings can be triggered by the following:

  • Pressing the send, print or enter button on the Z-Mike 1200 / 4000 Series Laser BenchMike, if it has one

  • Pressing the button on the SmartCable Keyboard

  • Depressing a connected footswitch (not included)

A detailed operation manual is included with this SmartCable Keyboard gage interface. The communication parameters can be changed and reconfigured per requirements for both the SmartCable and the Z-Mike 1200 / 4000 Series Laser BenchMike. Advanced Systems & Designs normally sets the SmartCable Keyboard to the default settings on the Z-Mike Laser BenchMike. Make sure both the SmartCable and Z-Mike Laser BenchMike are set to the same values. Refer to the Z-Mike Laser BenchMike user manual for more information on external communication.
