WinWedge Professional 4.0 Release

TAL Technologies is pleased to announce the January 2007 release of WinWedge Pro v4.0 with updated support for the latest versions of Windows, updated help files, and more features.

WinWedge is an easy to use data collection program designed for interfacing RS232 (and TCP/IP) devices such as data collection equipment, laboratory instruments, balances, pH meters, moisture analyzers, micrometers, flow meters, temperature sensors, bar code scanners, GPS receivers, and other serial output devices, to any Windows application. WinWedge inputs real-time serial data directly into EXCEL, Access, LIMS, MMIs, statistical software or any other Windows software.

Use WinWedge to easily perform real-time analysis, charting, and graphing of your serial data in your PC applications. Different instruments can simultaneously send data to different applications or to different "fields" within the same application.

Improved Analyze Window

Two of the most useful improvements are in the WinWedge "Analyze" window. You can now open the Analyze window in WinWedge and leave it open while you define the structure of your input data. You can also resize the analyze window so that you can see much more data and therefore reduce or eliminate the need to scroll through data that appears in the "Input Data" textbox in the Analyze window.

Add A Delay Between Keystrokes Sent From WinWedge To Other Programs

When WinWedge, TCP-Wedge and File-Wedge are configured to send data to other programs as "keystrokes", you can define additional keystrokes and/or date and time stamps to be sent to the target application along with the data. Normally additional keystrokes are used to navigate around in the target application or cause the target application to perform some operation on the data that you are feeding it. In some situations the target application may need some time to process the data that you are sending to it. To accomodate this, a new "DELAY" function has been added to WinWedge, TCP-Wedge and File-Wedge. You can specify the DELAY function only in the "Record Preamble Keystrokes" or the "Field Postamble Keystrokes" that you define in the Wedge.

Additional features of Version 4.0 include...

  • Improved Installation Program.
  • Minimize WinWedge To The System Tray Instead Of To The Taskbar.
  • Send Keystrokes to DOS applications and Citrix Windows as well as MS Windows applications.
  • Re-written user’s manual and help files with new examples for using WinWedge Pro with the latest Windows application programs such as the newest versions of Excel.
  • Recompiled to work with all versions of Windows including Windows VISTA.

As with all TALtech software, WinWedge Pro v4.0 comes with free and unlimited technical support and a risk-free 90-day money-back guarantee. Please visit the WinWedge page for general information regarding WinWedge Standard and Pro, application stories and user comments.

Since 1988 TALtech has focused on providing the highest quality software and support for inputting data from RS232 (serial) devices into any PC application software. Now TALtech also supports TCP/IP-based data collection, communication and conversion between RS232 and TCP/IP.
