WinWedge Software captures serial
data, custom tailors it to your
specifications, then transfers the
data to any Windows application
either by sending keystrokes to the
application’s window or by passing
the data through DDE (Dynamic
Data Exchange) conversations.
WinWedge adds complete data
acquisition and instrument control
any Windows application - Excel,
Access, LIMS, MMIs, etc. It is easily
set up in minutes, with no
programming, using a fully menudriven
WinWedge collects data on any
serial port* (RS232, RS422 or
RS485) even multiple serial ports
simultaneously and quickly diagnoses
and corrects serial communications
problems with a powerful “analyze”
It also transmits, prompts or
commands out the serial port to
control or query your instruments
directly from within other Windows
applications or directly from
WinWedge. Think of WinWedge as
a fully customizable serial I/O
WinWedge has a simple, menudriven
step by step set-up. With
WinWedge you can easily eliminate
slow, error prone manual data entry
- without having to do complex and
time consuming custom programming.
WinWedge 32 Pro
WinWedge 32 Pro is designed to
collect data from, and control, any
serial device, no matter how
complex the serial output or how
sophisticated the control required.
Use it with industrial and laboratory
instruments, quality and process
control devices, PBX systems,
WinWedge 32 Pro
advanced parsing, filtering and
formatting of text, binary, hex, octal
and ASCII data. WinWedge 32 Pro
is a full 32 bit version for Windows
95, 98 and NT. It supports up to 100
com ports, and all 32 bit Windows
features, such as long file names,
and it is 30% faster.
Expanded DDE support allows other
applications to completely control
WinWedge and all serial I/O. This
lets you create extremely powerful
data acquisition and device control
interfaces from within any Windows
application that supports DDE (i.e.
Excel, Lotus, Access, etc.).
Included with the WinWedge Pro
package you receive TCPWedge
software. TCPWedge lets you
communicate with any TCP/IP
network port address (Ethernet/
Internet) from any Windows
application. It is just like WinWedge 32
Pro but for TCP/IP communications
instead of serial I/O.
WinWedge 32(Standard Edition)
32 (32-bit) are standard is designed
to work with simple devices, such as
bar code readers, electronic scales,
calipers and gages, or any other
device that transmits simple text
data - either single field data, comma
delimited data or fixed length data.
It supports basic prompting and
control of serial devices, selectable
input buffer size (up to 32K), date
and time stamps, and baud rates up
to 19,200 baud. WinWedge
supports up to 9 COM ports.
WinWedge 32 supports up to 16
Advanced Features of Pro Version
• 30 powerful math functions
including scaling, conversions,
arithmetic and logical operators.
• Virtual Instrument Mode.
• Hot Key activated output strings
and Hot Key control.
• A Pre-Input Character Translation
table that can be used to simplify
complex input data record structures.
• Disk File Logging mode for serial
data. Use it to log serial data to
file in the background.
• Extended support for 2-way I/O
to give you more options for
controlling serial devices.
• Support for any serial data
including Binary, Hexadecimal
and Octal as well as ASCII.
• Maximum field lengths up to 64K
(vs. 256 bytes in std.)
• Pro versions include FileWedge
software. FileWedge easily inputs
data from any disk file directly into
any Windows application.
FileWedge works just like
WinWedge except data is read
from a disk file instead of a
WinWedge 32 and WinWedge 32
Pro run under Windows 95, 98, NT,
2000 or XP. All versions of
WinWedge will work with any
Windows program. The Pro
versions offer support for a far
wider range of serial devices
including advanced industrial and
laboratory instruments. All versions
are small applications that can run
with minimal system requirements.
