MUX 16 : Multiplexer for 16 measuring instruments

A multiplexer with 16 universal inputs for measuring instruments


The multiplexer MUX16 enables the communication of 1 to 16 measuring instruments (caliper, micrometer, weight scale) to a PC or similar equipment equipped with a USB port or a RS 232 interface.



Connection possible with the following instruments (but not limlited to):

- Digimatic : Mitutoyo, Mahr

- Opto RS232 Sylvac, Tesa, Bowers etc...

- RS232

- Analogue ouput, single or bipolar, in current or in voltage...


Instrument recognition is automatic.

Mux 8 : Multiplexeur pour instruments




  • Mitutoyo and Mahr instruments are connected to the MUX16 through their original cable.(Digimatic)
  • Opto RS232 duplex instruments (Ex: Sylvac, Tesa, ...) are connected through a cable ref 18010
  • Instrumentes having a RS232 output are connected with the cable ref 18100. This cable can be delivered ready to use or easily configured by the user in order to fulfill each particular need thanks to the MuxConfig software.
  • Instruments equipped with an analogue output in voltage or current are connected with the cable ref 189xx : ±5V, ±10V, 0-5V, 0-10V, 4-20mA, ±20mA, 0-20mA.




There are 3 ways to read your measuring instrument :

  • By a software request receveived on the communication port (USB or RS 232).
  • By a footswitch connected to the MUX16
  • By using the tranfert button of the instrument

This configuration enable to the PC de get the measurements taken from different instruments. The Winmux software allows to bring diretly the data into a spreadsheet software (Excel, Open Office...).
