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

This Advanced Systems & Designs - ASDQMS SmartCable™ USB Keyboard single gage interface connects the FGV-XY Digital Force Gauge to a computer and sends real-time data to Excel or other spreadsheet programs. Connects the FGV-XY Digital Force Gauge to the SmartCable Keyboard gage interface using a Hirose 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 FGV-XY Digital Force Gauge to be identified as a keyboard device that can send real-time data to any Microsoft Windows application (like Excel) or Explorer based SPC program - no complicated software wedge required.

The SmartCable™ Keyboard will make the FGV-XY Digital Force Gauge 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.

  • Pressing the button on the SmartCable™ Keyboard interface cable

A detailed operation manual is included with this SmartCable™ Keyboard gage interface.
