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.
