Product Description

Panametrics Magna-Mike Model 8000 SmartCable™ USB Interface with Keyboard Output 

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

This Advanced Systems & Designs SmartCable™ USB Keyboard, single gage interface, connects the Panametrics Magna-Mike Model 8000 Thickness Gauge to a computer. Connects the Magna-Mike Model 8000 Thickness Gauge to our SmartCable™ Keyboard interface using a 25-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 with its built-in keyboard wedge to a computer will allow the SmartCable™ gage interface to be identified as a keyboard device that can send data to any Microsoft Windows application - no software wedge required.

The SmartCable™ Keyboard interface cable will make the Panametrics Magna-Mike Model 8000 Thickness Gauge 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 or Explorer based SPC programs, simply select the cell where you want the data to appear.

Readings can be transmitted by the following:

  • Pressing the button on the SmartCable™ Keyboard gage interface

  • Depressing a connected footswitch (not included)

  • Pressing the SEND button on the Panametrics Magna-Mike Model 8000 Thickness Gauge 

Simple to use!

LED Indicator lights aid the user with the operation of the SmartCable™.  This SmartCable™ Keyboard interface is easily configured to output data in different modes on your spreadsheet, such as CR, TAB, up, down, left, or right. The output mode is selected by adjusting the rotary switch on the SmartCable™ Keyboard gage interface. To access the rotary switch, simply simply remove the top cover by loosening two Phillips screws.

Six foot standard cable length. We can make with any special lengths upon request. Contact us for more information.
