Digital Gage Interface

October 28, 2009

The Model MP-8D digital gage interface acts as both a data switch and a data converter. The unit allows up to eight digital tools, such as micrometers, calipers and height gages, to be connected to a PC serial port simultaneously. The LCD continuously displays the measurement readings for any one or all of the connected tools. The operator can make gage port selections manually using front panel pushbuttons or can switch ports automatically by sensing activity at any connected measurement tool. Measurement data output can be triggered by pushbutton or with the supplied footswitch. The interface also allows operators to define multiple part feature setups each having unique tolerance limits, preset value, measurement resolution, peak-hold setting and display format.
