Product Description

Ametek Accuforce AF3 Digital Force Gauge SmartCable™ USB Interface with Keyboard Output 

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

This Advanced Systems & Designs SmartCable™ Keyboard interface connects the Ametek Accuforce AF3 Series Digital Force Gauge to a computer. Connects the Accuforce AF3 Series Digital Force Gauge to our SmartCable™ Keyboard interface using a high quality 12-pin 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 Ametek Accuforce AF3 Series Digital Force Gauge 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 Accuforce Digital Force 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 data send button on the Accuforce Digital Force 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 length upon request. Contact us for more information.
