Advanced Systems & Designs (Troy, MI) offers the SmartCable line of single input gage interfaces the output of a manufacturer’s gage into standard RS232, USB and keyboard output for use in any SPC data collection. According to the company, it quickly configures itself, and the user will find it easy to connect calipers, micrometers, indicators or any other gages directly to PCs. Readings are triggered using the gage’s send button, button on cable, an external foot switch (connected via external foot-switch jack) or host request. The SmartCable’s interface is designed with the harsh shop-floor environment in mind and employs an advanced micro-controller.
