Product Description

SmartCable Keyboard for Heidenhain ND 280 Position Display

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

This Advanced Systems & Designs - ASDQMS SmartCable USB Keyboard single gage interface connects the Heidenhain ND280 Digital Position Display to a computer to send data to Excel or other spreadsheet programs. Connects the Heidenhain ND280 Digital Display to the SmartCable Keyboard gage interface using a 9-pin female cable connector---no additional cables required. The output of the SmartCable Keyboard is a standard USB 2.0 keyboard signal.

Connecting the SmartCable Keyboard gage interface with its built-in keyboard wedge to a computer will allow the SmartCable to be identified as a keyboard device that can send data to any Microsoft Windows application (like Excel) or internet explorer based SPC program - no complicated software wedge required. The SmartCable Keyboard will make the Heidenhain ND280 Digital Display readings appear as if they were typed in using a standard keyboard - eliminates 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.

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 device.

LED Indicator lights aid the user with the operation of the SmartCable Keyboard. This SmartCable Keyboard is easily configured to output data in different output modes on your spreadsheet, such as CR, TAB, up, down, left, or right.
