Starrett 2000SCKB Smartcable USB Keyboard Output – 2000-24 Height Gage
The Starrett 2000SCKB 6-foot smartcable connects the Starrett 2000-24 height gauge to a computer or keyboard for data input. The smartcable has a USB 2.0 connector and a Starrett 2000 series connector, and an LED light to indicate status. The USB 2.0 connector on one end connects to a computer or keyboard; the Starrett 2000 series connector on the other end connects to the height gauge. The cable inputs data using one of two operating modes: static (normal) or dynamic (Min/Max/TIR). The Starrett 2000SCKB smartcable is an accessory for use with the Starrett 2000-24 height gauge, which is an electronic, digital, measuring device.
Height gauges, sometimes referred to as gages, are precision measuring instruments that travel on a vertical column (also called the beam) to measure and/or mark the vertical distance from the base of an object in fine units. The vertical position of the gauge and its attached pointer are changed by turning a calibrated screw, or one or more feed wheels. Recorded rotations are read from a scale, a dial, counters, and/or an electronic display. A screw clamp holds the pointer to the gauge. The pointer is typically sharpened to act as a scriber, and can be used to mark a position on a workpiece by scratching its surface. On compatible units, the scriber may be replaced by an electronic touch-signal probe. Height gauges are typically used in manufacturing, machining, and mechanical engineering.
The L.S. Starrett Company manufactures precision measuring tools, metrology and testing equipment, and saw blade products. The company, founded in 1880, is headquartered in Athol, MA.
