Product Description

The Mitutoyo 264-012-10 USB input tool provides an interface to input measurement data from a Mitutoyo measuring device with the Digimatic output feature to a computer. The tool is for use with Digimatic devices such as micrometers, calipers, or gauges, and connects to a computer through a USB interface.

The tool has an electronic housing and connects to the Digimatic device through an SPC connection cable, which is required for input (sold separately). An attached USB cable provides output to the computer through a USB 2.0 or 1.1 port. The tool converts received measurement data to keyboard signals for direct input into the cells of commercially available spreadsheet software, such Microsoft Excel (not included). The unit dimensions are 2.8 x 1.7 x 9 inches (72 x 44 x 23.5 mm) (H x W x D), and it weighs 2.6 ounces (74 grams). (H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.)

Mitutoyo manufactures precision measuring tools, metrology equipment, and systems. The company was founded in Tokyo in 1934 and formed Mitutoyo America Corporation in 1963, which is headquartered in Aurora, IL.

I purchased one of these to record measurements from a set of Mitutoyo Calipers. Installation was straightforward - simply connect the USB connector into an available USB port. In my case, Windows 7 (32-bit) recognized the unit and automatically configured it for use.

Couple Notes:
1. If you don't currently have one, you'll need to purchase the cable that connects the calipers to the unit itself.
2. The unit has a button on it that sends data from the calipers to the computer. However, most users will want to use a foot pedal to send the data instead. There's an 1/8" jack on the unit that you can plug a pedal into - BUT note that it needs to be a MONO connection. I connected an older DataMyte pedal to it with an 1/8" STEREO jack and it wouldn't work until I added a mono adapter. Ultimately, I connected a $20 mono piano pedal to it and it works great! You can get a standard mono piano pedal from any department store that sells synthesizers.

I tested the unit with Word, Excel, Access and AutoCAD and it worked as expected. It doesn't matter what program you're using really. The unit simply sends the data to any program as if the user was typing it. Also, note that the data is sent with a carriage return at the end of the stream. This allows the cursor to move to the "next line" in whatever software you're using without you having to press the ENTER key.

This is a great tool to have if you do a lot of data collection and want to semi-automate data entry (you still have to press a button). This input tool is plug and play and is super simple, no need to configure it, no need to use hyperterminal or any round about way. Just plug in and press the button and now you have data. Just as if you had keyed it in.

Make sure your Mitutoyo gage is a DIGIMATIC ABSOLUTE gage. Not all calipers/indicators/micrometers have the required SPC output, check Mitutoyo's website or look for the SPC port on your gage.

This is the older model of the Mitutoyo USB input tool, but it still has its usefulness if you have multiple Mitutoyo gages. If you want more flexibility with data input, this is a more economical solution than the newer "all-in-one" cables which only work with calipers or only indicators (remember there are seven different connector types). It allows you to keep the same USB input tool, and then purchase the more affordable data cable adapter ($30-$50) for each gage rather than a newer direct to usb cable for each gage ($170-$190).

Works on any application or any computer that can identify a HID peripheral. This input tool is identified as a keyboard.

Verified Purchase
I purchased two of these for the inspectors in our quality department and saw nearly instant benefits. They installed in minutes, and work exactly as promised, and are very easy to use. (FYI, an additional cable is required between your measuring device and this input tool.)

I looked at these, but they still require a computer at the other end to do anything with the data. So I built my own with a Arduino microcontroller for less than $50 (including LCD screen), and don't need a computer attached to process the data, the arduino is the processor. With VGA and speech out, I have about $100 total in the project.
