Qualitron FlexCable Link ANY Digital Gage to ANY Software
The Qualitron FlexCable provides the link between your gages and the PC or SPC workstation. FlexCable converts the output of any manufacturer's gage into standard RS-232 (for direct input to the PC's or PLC's serial port), or into any Mitutoyo-compatible system, such as Mitutoyo DP1, DP3, DP7, Mux10, or Qualitron GageNET.

This allows easy automated input into any SPC or other data collection software. FlexCable supports over 400 different gage manufacturers (see list of supported gages below).

With the FlexCable's flexibility, you can collect data from any device, including gages, calipers, micrometers, indicators, torque wrenches, hardness testors, height gages, temperature gages, pressure sensors, scales, and instruments.

FlexCable is ready to collect data right out of the box - no software to set-up. Simply plug and play. No external power supply is necessary - power is drawn from the PC or PLC serial port and most Mitutoyo-compatible systems, making it ideal for portable data collection.

FlexCable can be configured to operate in static mode (instant or Normal reading), or dynamic mode (MIN, MAX, TIR readings). The input channel can be individually controlled - triggered externally by the gage's SEND button, foot switch or simple host commands.
