FlexPort Analog Gage Interface FP-4A

The FlexPort Analog Gage Interface allows users to connect to voltage outputs of +/- 10 vdc or 4-10mA output devices. The FlexPort also allows users to enter engineering units and also control the resolution for each input individually (engineering units are the value that the voltage represents).

Product Description

The FlexPort simultaneously combines the signal from multiple tools and converts it to a standardized format (RS232 serial/USB) for populating any software package you choose.  (SPC software packages have a driver for this format).  The front panel includes multiple data send LEDs to signal successful data transmission.  The LEDs turn on when data is requested and automatically turn off when data has been sent.

The FlexPort offers 2 ways to request a reading to be sent to your PC:
 - Data send jack (contact closure from hand or footswitch)
 - PC host commands (before and/or after readings sent)

All requests can trigger a static or dynamic (TIR) reading, trigger all or any combination of ports, send serial requests to a gage, notify PC that a data request has occurred and many more features exclusive to the FlexPort line.

The FlexPort Analog is available in 4 and 8 input versions.  Data is sent to your PC via the included RS232 or USB cable to a communication port.  Each input is identified with a channel number for easy identification and tracking.

Multiple input FlexPorts include a Pass-Thru port (DB9M) that can connect to a serial gage and extract 1 to 10 readings from an output string.  The Pass-Thru port can also be used as a backplane port to connect multiple interfaces using the standard cabling included with every unit.  You can mix digital, analog and remote display interfaces for up to 99 inputs.

Whether you need to recall a stored reading or need to capture multiple readings per second, no other interface compares to the speed and flexibility of the FlexPort Gage Interface.
