Setting up the Mitutoyo U-WAVE Receiver for Windows Tulip Player

The Mitutoyo U-WAVE Receiver allows wireless communication with a variety of Digimatic Gauges and Calipers. The support for this device is available in Windows Tulip Player (v1.7.x or higher) and Edge Device (OS 51 or higher).


Edge devices require the driver to be enabled.

Before using the U-WAVE Receiver with Windows Tulip Player, the device drivers for this device needs to be installed for Windows to properly interface with the device.

  1. Download the DOWNLOAD U-WAVEPAK 1.022B zip file on your Windows PC and extract it.
  2. The extracted contents would have a Drivers folder as shown below.

  1. Plug in the Mitutoyo U-WAVE Receiver to the Windows PC.
  2. Open Device Manager. You can search for Device Manager from the Start menu or find it within Control Panel.

  1. Expand the Other devices section and you should see USB Serial Port with a yellow warning icon.

On some Windows versions, you might see “Mitutoyo U-WAVE” instead.

  1. Right click on the device and select Update Driver.

  1. In the modal that opens, select Browse my computer for drivers.

  1. Click Browse and select the “U-WAVEPAK_V1.022B\Drivers\CDM_U-WAVE” folder from within the folder extracted in step 2. Ensure you select Include subfolders.

  1. Wait for Windows to install the driver and show a success message.

  1. Click Close button. The Device Manager automatically refreshes. You can find the “Mitutoyo U-WAVE (COMX)” under “Ports (COM & LPT)” section. The COMX number may vary depending on the PC.

On some Windows PCs, the device might show up again as an unrecognized device (with an yellow warning icon). In this case, repeat the driver install process again on the unrecognized device.

  1. The U-WAVE Receiver now works with the Windows Tulip Player application.
  2. You may need to manually pair the U-WAVE Transmitter with the U-WAVE Receiver. The Tulip Player Application does not automatically handle this. For instructions, see U-WAVE - Pair Transmitter and Receiver for Metrology Data Collection
