Product Description

Mitutoyo Litematic 318-226A / RS-232 Interface Unit SmartCable™ Gage Interface 

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

This Advanced Systems & Designs - ASDQMS SmartCable™ USB Keyboard, single gage interface, connects the Mitutoyo 318 Series VL-50-B Litematic Measuring Unit to a computer. Connects the Mitutoyo Litematic Instrument to the SmartCable™ Keyboard using a 9-pin female cable connector---no additional cables required. The output of the ASDQMS SmartCable™ Keyboard is a standard USB 2.0 keyboard signal.

Along with the standard SmartCable™ Keyboard interface output modes, this model provides a continuous mode for tracking deflection of a sample over long periods with the highly accurate Mitutoyo 318 Series Litematic Instrument. Continuous modes of instantaneous, 10 second intervals, 15 second intervals, 30 second intervals, and 60 second intervals are built into this SmartCable™ Keyboard interface. Contact us if you require a special interval for your process.

Connecting the Advanced Systems and Designs SmartCable™ Keyboard with its built-in keyboard wedge to a computer will allow the Litematic High Accuracy Digital Measuring Instrument to be identified as a keyboard device that can send data to any Microsoft Windows application - no software wedge required. The SmartCable™ Keyboard will make the Mitutoyo 318 Series Litematic 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 by any of the following:

  • Depressing a connected footswitch (not included)

  • Pressing the push button on the SmartCable Keyboard 

  • Sending data from the Mitutoyo 318 Series Litematic Measuring Instrument

Simple to use!

LED Indicator lights aid the user with the operation of the SmartCable™ gage interface.  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. See above for continuous output options. 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. A detailed operation manual is included with each SmartCable™ Keyboard.
