- Send button (on the gage or cable)
- Send button (on the front of FlexPort FP-1M)
- Data send jack (contact closure from hand or footswitch)
- PC host commands (send host commands to request a reading)

The front of the FP-1M allows users to plug in standard 10 pin cables for Mitutoyo and digimatic output devices.  For the port, a data send button and data send input jack as well as a data send LED is provided.  The LED turns on when data is requested and automatically turn off when data has been sent.
