Starrett 776 Series Gage-Chek SmartCable™ Keyboard with Multi-Field Output
Send data directly to Excel---No Software Wedge Required
The Advanced Systems and Designs (ASDQMS) gage interface with keyboard output sends data directly to Microsoft Excel, Explorer-based SPC programs, or other spreadsheet programs without using complicated software wedges. This Advanced Systems & Designs SmartCable™ USB Keyboard single gage interface connects the Starrett 776 Series Multi-Axis Measured Value Display to a computer. The SmartCable™ Keyboard gage interface attaches the Starrett 776 Gage-Chek to the SmartCable™ Keyboard using a 9-pin female cable connector---no additional cables required. This SmartCable™ gage interface allows the user to output up to five (5) fields in Excel with one push of a button. 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 Starrett 776 Series Gage Check Display to be identified as a keyboard device that can send data to any Microsoft Windows application - no software wedge required. The SmartCable™ Keyboard gage interface will make the Starrett 776 Series Gage-Chek digital 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, simply select the cell where you want the data to appear.
Readings can be triggered from the Starrett Gage-Chek by any of the following:
Pressing the push button on the SmartCable™ Keyboard gage interface
Depressing a connected footswitch (not included)
Pressing the print / send button (or operator pre-set "soft keys") on the Starrett Gage-Chek
Simple to set-up!
This SmartCable™ Keyboard is easily configured to output data in different output modes on your spreadsheet, such as CR, TAB, or multiple TABs followed by CR. The output mode is selected by adjusting the rotary switch on the SmartCable™ Keyboard. To access the rotary switch, simply remove the top cover by loosening two Phillips screws. LED Indicator lights aid the user with the operation of the SmartCable™ gage interface.
Six foot standard cable length with special lengths available on request.
A detailed operation manual is included with the Advanced Systems and Designs SmartCable™ Keyboard gage interface. Advanced Systems & Designs normally sets the SmartCable™ Keyboard to the default settings on the Starrett 776 Series Gage-Chek. Make sure both the SmartCable™ and Starrett 776 Series Gage-Chek are set to the same values. Refer to the Starrett Gage-Chek Multi-Axis Measured Value Display user manual for more information on external communication.
