Metrology Software for Connecting Measuring Instruments



Mahr Inc. now offers its MarCom Professional metrology software version 5.2 as a free download from its website. MarCom 5.2 is a full-featured metrology software interface for connecting measuring instruments by cable or wireless.

Mahr Inc. has offered its MarCom Professional metrology software version 5.2 as a free download from the Mahr.com website. MarCom 5.2 is a full-featured metrology software interface for connecting measuring instruments by cable or wireless. It enables direct transfer of measured values into MS Excel, SPC software or text file, and can manage signals from up to 32 measuring instruments connected wirelessly and 128 connected via cables using USB.

"Taking measurements on the shop floor and transmitting them wirelessly speeds up the quality assurance process," said George Schuetz, Mahr Inc. Director Precision Gages. "When measuring on the machine or on larger workpieces, for example, there is no need to run troublesome cables. This speeds setup and provides more efficient data processing, especially for quality control in production or incoming goods."

Wireless data transmission also simplifies the recording and documenting process, especially in the networked factory of Industry 4.0. Pressing a button on the instrument, or using a keyboard command, timer, remote control or foot switch sends acquired data sent from the gauge to an i-stick radio receiver plugged into the USB port of a computer. Each i-stick can receive data from up to 8 gauges using "Integrated Wireless." For those measuring instruments that do not have an "Integrated Wireless" interface, Mahr can add an external transmission module.

"MarCom Pro 5.2 software enables fast and easy setup of measuring stations with wireless data transfer to the PC," said a company spokesperson. "The MarCom cell control is highly flexible. Measured values from connected devices can be automatically transferred into separate Excel columns, tables or files ensuring the reliability of measurement data documentation. At the same time, the MarCom software ensures that readings can be passed on through an integrated virtual interface box to an SPC / CAQ software such as Q-DAS or Babtec."

Wireless data transmission capability is now integrated into Mahr Inc.'s families of MarCal digital calipers and MarCator digital indicators, using proven wireless technology. In addition, Mahr Inc.'s broad line of mechanical comparative gauges can now be upgraded for wireless data transmission with the addition of a MarCator 1086 or 1087 wireless digital indicator. The line includes a wide array of snap gauges, ID & OD gages, fixed and adjustable bore gauges, as well as depth and comparator stands.
