Measurement Collection Specialists | Connect Any Gage into Any Software
MicroRidge designs and manufactures a broad range of wired and wireless measurement collection solutions, including MobileCollect wireless, GageWay interfaces, and WedgeLink hardware and software keyboard wedges. Measurement collection is what we do from wired to wireless. Our products support the broadest range of digital & RS-232 gages, digital indicators, micrometers, height gages, scales, etc. as well as all SPC software.
MobileCollect makes it easier to bring your gage to what is being measured, rather than bringing what is being measured to your gage. Collect measurements with handheld gages (calipers, digital indicators, micrometers, etc.) and other instruments, and send wirelessly to your PC. Whether connecting a single gage to a spreadsheet, or hundreds of gages to a cloud-based quality monitoring application, MobileCollect offers the tools you need to send each measurement in real-time, with 100% accuracy, at the press of a button.
Mobile Module Transmitters
Mobile Modules are transmitters that send the measurement data to a Base Receivers. The Mobile Modules are battery powered and typically connected to gages such as calipers, digital indicators, micrometers, etc.
Remotes are transmitters that send the measurement data to a Base Receivers. Remotes support the same types of gages as the Mobile Modules. Remotes are used when you do not need the mobility of the Mobile Module.
Base receivers collect measurement data wirelessly from Mobile Module and Remote Transmitters. Bases are connected to a PC, laptop, or tablet by a USB or RS-232 port. Bases are available with serial and keyboard wedge outputs.
GageWay interfaces connect one or more digital gages and serial devices to a single computer port using physical connecting cables. They can transfer gage data into any Windows program or SPC/data acquisition software, and are an excellent option for situations where gage mobility is not a requirement. GageWay interfaces support a wide range of digital gages and serial devices.
Single Gage Inputs
GageWay SM is an easy-to-use interface designed to connect a single Mitutoyo digital gage (calipers, micrometers, digital indicators, etc.) or compatible output gages, to an RS-232 serial or USB port.
Multiple Gage Inputs
GageWay Pro2, Pro4 and Pro8 interfaces connect one or more digital gages and serial devices to a single computer port. Each interface includes “USB serial” and “USB keyboard wedge” outputs.
Connecting RS-232 Devices
Connect RS-232 devices to GageWay Pro interfaces via the LC Cable. The LC Cable allows you to connect serial devices to the MicroRidge interfaces.
WedgeLink Keyboard Wedges
A keyboard wedge is used when you are trying to get data from some type of measuring device into applications that cannot accept data from a serial port. A software keyboard wedge reads data from a serial port and passes this data to a PC application. A hardware wedge reads data from digital gages or RS-232 devices and sends the data to the PC via a keyboard or USB port. Common applications that are used with keyboard wedges are Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Access, and other database types of applications.
RS-232 Hardware Wedge
WedgeLink SP transfers data from serial devices directly into Windows applications such as Excel. Data parsing is not available & no setup is required.
RS-232 Hardware Wedge
WedgeLink AT transfers data from serial devices directly into Windows applications such as Excel. WedgeLink AT features extensive data parsing.
Software Keyboard Wedges
WedgeLink software keyboard wedges transfer data from serial devices into Windows applications such as Excel. The WedgeLink Standard version features extensive data parsing.
