GageWay SM Single Gage Interfaces

The GageWay SM is an easy-to-use interface designed to connect a single Mitutoyo digital gage (calipers, micrometers, digital indicators, etc.), or Mitutoyo compatible output gages, to an RS-232 serial or USB port. When using the USB version of the GageWay SM, the USB connection looks like a standard RS-232 serial port to your PC application.
