Send data directly to Excel---No Software Wedge Required
Simplify your data acquisition system. This USB Direct Cable single gage interface connects the a standard Mitutoyo gage to a computer. Connects directly to the gage, no additional cables required. The output of the USB Direct Cable gage interface is a standard USB 2.0 keyboard signal.
This is the ideal cable to use with Mitutoyo's NEW IDC Digital Indicators because it has a built-in data send button. This cable is what many have been requesting to use with digital indicators when they do not want to disturb the reading by pushing a send button at the gage. This USB Direct Cable gets the data send process away from the indicator so your readings are accurate every time. There is no need to add the expense of a separate footswitch---but if you want use one, there is a footswitch port on the USB Direct Cable box.
Connecting this USB Direct Cable with its built-in keyboard interface to a computer will allow the USB Direct Cable to be identified as a keyboard device that can send data to any Microsoft Windows application or SPC internet explorer software - no complicated software wedges required. And it never changes when your software updates.
