Industry-tested Accuracy & Reliability

Device data is automatically transferred to your Windows application with 100% accuracy. Perfect for process control, quality control, pharmaceutical and other “mission critical” data.

Simple, One-Minute Setup

BC-Wedge is optimized for getting single-field device data wherever you need with as little setup as possible. Think of BC-Wedge as a basic version of our WinWedge Software.

Sends Data as Keystrokes

Send data anywhere that accepts text input. BC-Wedge automatically “types” single field device data into Excel, Access, or any Windows application and web form.


With a more focused feature-set, BC-Wedge is a more affordable alternative to WinWedge Standard while continuing to offer free and unlimited technical support.

Wondering how BC-Wedge can help with your data transfer and automation needs?

Compatible Devices

BC-Wedge is compatible with basic devices that send single field RS232 or USB-RS232 data, such as…

  • Barcode scanners
  • Digital calipers
  • Scales
  • Balances

For other devices, we recommend WinWedge or WinWedge Pro.

Need greater device support, flexibility, and control?

If you need to collect data from instruments or devices that send more than one data field or if you need to send commands to prompts or control your devices or if you need more advanced data parsing, filtering or formatting, you will need to use our more powerful WinWedge software.

  • Sophisticated data parsing and filtering
  • Advanced keystroke macro insertion before and after your data
  • Date & time stamping of your serial data
  • Powerful DDE (Dynamic Data Exchange) support
  • Optional disk file logging of serial data
  • Full 2-way serial I/O to send data and commands out to your serial devices…

Easy Setup

Select your device’s parameters.

Connect your device to your PC’s serial COM or USB* port and select your device’s communications settings, such as COM port number, baud rate, parity, data bits, and stop bits.
*Be sure to install any necessary drivers.

Activate to start sending data!

Activate and watch data appear in fields within any Windows application or web form.
