Product Description

The CableWedge USB Gage Interface is designed for interfacing (convert and connect) most measuring instruments to a computer via the USB port.

The CableWedge is a multi-function interface that includes both HID (keyboard emulation) and VCP (Virtual ComPort emulation).

HID – Keyboard Emulation
No setup is required. The CableWedge USB will work right out of the box. Connect the CableWedge directly to any USB port on the computer and collect data immediately. The PC will see the CableWedge as an additional keyboard and immediately allow readings to be entered into any program. Gage readings appear as if they were typed on the keyboard numeric pad. Now readings are displayed just like you typed them...no data errors!

Eliminate data entry errors from transcribed numbers or other human errors. Enter data into spreadsheets or database with ease. All programs 'see' the data as if typed on the keyboard, eliminating the need for extra software to populate spreadsheets, documents, databases, etc. By default the gage readings are sent followed by a carriage return.  Like all the interfaces manufactured by Midwest FlexSystems, the output is configurable to meet custom needs.

Custom features like sending Date/Time Stamps to spreadsheets, capturing Min/Max/TIR readings, navigation within your software to the data entry column or up and down arrows, and more can be configured to get the most out of the CableWedge USB. Just enter the configuration menu and select the custom option you desire.

Data can be sent to programs like Excel and LabView up to 30 readings/second.  Now that's fast typing!

VCP – Virtual Com Port Emulation
If you would load the driver (included) for the CableWedge USB you will be able to access advanced features as well as capture data from a Virtual ComPort (VCP).  The computer will treat the CableWedge like a serial port - just like previous DB9 or DB25 serial ports.  The CableWedge USB will send data that can be captured by any software you choose.  Most SPC software have a driver for the standard format used by all Midwest FlexSystem products.

Software written to communicate or capture readings from com ports will see the CableWedge USB as a new available COM port.

Configuration Menu
The CableWedge comes with an installation CD that includes the driver for COM port setup and also the software to figure the CableWedge USB.

Software includes Midwest FlexTerm Terminal software for easy and intuitive setup of advanced features.

Options include:

  • Date/Time stamping of data into spreadsheets
  • Min/Max/TIR Mode
  • Continuous sending of data
  • Change the line terminator (EOF – End of Field)
    • -Carriage return
    • -Tab
    • -Down arrow
    • -And more…

The CableWedge USB is a great addition to the advanced interface products from Midwest FlexSystems, Inc.
