We've written and compiled several articles and tech resources together to help you better understand the technologies behind our products.

RS232 and Serial Communications
Data collection software for serial devices, including meters, balances, scales or any RS232 instrument. WinWedge captures data directly to Excel, Access or any Windows application or web page. It can even send commands out a COM port so you can control your device through hot keys, buttons, or DDE.

Testimonials

"There is not a person I would rather recommend to someone than you. Boy, if every support person was like you, people would have to learn to speak without curse words, the average blood pressure of users/customers would drop significantly, etc.. I'd be more than happy to talk with any potential users (of TALtech software)."

Tom Barth PriceWaterhouseCoopers

"I highly recommend WinWedge for data collection from RS232 devices - especially its ability to easily edit serial data to your requirements. Great Program!"
