Product Description

Mitutoyo 174 Series KA Counter SmartCable™ with Multi-Field Output

Send data to Excel - no software wedge required

This Advanced Systems & Designs SmartCable™ USB Keyboard single gage interface connects the Mitutoyo KA Counter Series 174 to a computer. Connects to the Mitutoyo KA Counter 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. NOTE: Mitutoyo 174-175A or 174-185A KA counter must have optional RS232 code out unit (Part Number 09CAB217).

NOTE: See our 600-22-KA200-KB-USB for the updated 200 Series Mitutoyo KA 174-183A or 174-185A using optional 06AET993 RS232 code out unit.

Connecting the SmartCable™ Keyboard with its built-in keyboard wedge to a computer will allow the Mitutoyo KA Counter 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 Mitutoyo Series 174 KA Counter 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 or Explored based SPC software program, simply select the cell where you want the data to appear.

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 modes on your spreadsheet. The output mode is selected by adjusting the rotary switch on the SmartCable™ Keyboard gage interface. To access the rotary switch, simply remove the top cover by loosening two Phillips screws.

This SmartCable™ Keyboard gage interface works with both the Mitutoyo discontinued 174-173 2-axes and discontinued 174-175A 3-axes KA counter. Sends data from X, Y, and Z (on 3-axes counters).

Offers multiple, user selected, options for data output:

  • X only followed by CR or TAB

  • Y only followed by CR or TAB

  • Z only followed by CR or TAB

  • X & Y followed by CR or TAB

  • X, Y, & Z followed by CR or TAB
