Get Data from Serial Devices into Excel and Apps

Do you frequently need to manually transfer data from devices like scales, balances, barcode scanners or other serial output equipment into Excel, databases or business applications? This tedious data entry can be time-consuming and prone to errors.

Fortunately, there’s software that allows you to automatically capture and integrate serial device data into your spreadsheets and apps: WinWedge.

WinWedge is a powerful Windows utility software that acts as a bridge between your serial devices and applications like Excel, Word, Access, or any other program that accepts keyboard input or data files. It allows you to effortlessly capture, translate, format, and transfer data without any programming required.

Key Features of WinWedge:

  1. Broad Device Compatibility: WinWedge supports a wide range of serial devices using RS232, USB, or Ethernet connections, including scales, balances, bar code scanners, measurement equipment, and more.
  2. Excel & Application Integration: The software lets you input data directly into an open Excel spreadsheet, database, or any Windows program with just a few clicks. No more manual data entry!
  3. Powerful Data Parsing: WinWedge’s advanced parsing and formatting capabilities allow you to extract, manipulate, and format your serial data exactly how you need it.
  4. Automation & Scheduling: Automate data collection by setting up WinWedge to run in the background and schedule imports based on time intervals or hardware triggers.
  5. Flexible controls: Create custom buttons, hotkeys, and command workflows to streamline your data collection and simplify operations.
