L-Box – characteristics and description

Like M-Box, L-Box is deployed as an interface for industrial applications in the field of SPC quality assurance and CAQ (computer-aided quality control).
Power to run the unit is provided as standard by means of a 230-volt integrated mains network element. A Mitutoyo LGD-/LGS-key, connected for measurement purposes, is also provided with power by the internal source. The LGD-/LGS-key can be reset (Clear) either by a relevant command or by pressing the key.

L-Boxes are equipped with external foot switch connections, which facilitate trouble-free data transmission to the relevant software. Box activity is displayed by an array of status LEDs, permitting operational control of the device.

L-Box equipment and connection options

Up to 32 digital measuring devices can be connected via L-Box to a single PC. L-Box is provided with a range of Digimatic [?] and MultiRS232 [?] ports.

All L-Boxes support the BOBE EAI488 command set. In addition, L-Boxes 1, 2, 11 and 12 are available with a slightly modified Mitutoyo MUX50 command and data format, allowing them to be operated with quality assurance data software exclusively configured for MUX 50-type Mitutoyo Interfaces (z.B. DMX-16).
