Product Description

USB Direct Keyboard-Style Cable for AND EKi Series Scales

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

The AND EKi Series of Precision Electronic Balance with its RS232 DB9 interface port can fulfill many laboratory weight and measurement accuracy requirements. This USB Direct Cable is a single gage interface that connects to the AND EKi Series Electronic Balance using a 9-pin male cable connector---no additional cables required. The output of the USB Direct Cable is a standard USB 2.0 keyboard signal.

Connecting the USB Direct Cable with its built-in keyboard wedge to a computer allows the AND EKi Series Electronic Balance to be identified as a keyboard device. Data can be sent to any Microsoft Windows application - no software wedge required. The USB Direct Cable will make the AND EKi Electronic Balance readings appear as if they were typed in using a standard computer keyboard to eliminate data collection errors. If you want to collect data into a Microsoft Excel spreadsheet or Explorer based SPC software program, simply select the cell where you want the data to appear and trigger the reading.

Readings can be triggered by any of the following...

  • Pressing the PRINT key on the AND EKi Series Electronic Balance
  • Pressing the button on the USB Direct Cable gage interface
  • Depressing a connected footswitch (not included)

Simple to use!

A detailed operation manual is included with each USB Direct Cable gage interface. This USB Direct Cable is a single gage interface that is easily configured to output data in different output modes on your spreadsheet such as, CR, TAB, up, down, left, or right by adjusting the rotary switch on the USB Direct Cable. To access the rotary switch, simply remove the top cover by loosening two Phillips screws. LED Indicator lights aid the user with the operation of the USB Direct Cable.

This USB Direct Cable comes with a lifetime warranty against manufacturing defects. Six foot standard cable length - special lengths available on request.

At the factory, the default settings are loaded onto the USB Direct Cable to match the AND EKi Precision Balance. Both the USB Direct Cable and the AND EKi Series Balance must be set to the same RS232 communication values. Refer to the AND EKi Balance instruction manual for more information on communication using the built in RS232 interface.
