Industrial Automation

WinWedge® and TCP-Wedge®

Collect Data from and Control devices via TCP/IP or serial networks

Use WinWedge and TCP-Wedge in industrial automation and process control DATA ACQUISITION and CONTROL with all types of devices – PLCs, sensors, meters, gages, scales, check weighers, industrial controllers, robotics, etc. Communicate between any Windows application program and any device connected over a TCP/IP or serial (RS232, RS485 or USB) network.

Sample Industrial Automation Applications

1) TCP-Wedge could request data from a tank-level monitor over a TCP/IP network every 5 seconds. The data would automatically be input in real-time into a Windows-based HMI software (such as Wonderware InTouch). The Windows software can then analyze the data and have TCP-Wedge send commands out to controllable valves on other IP addresses to increase or decrease the flow.

2) WinWedge Pro could collect data from and control a PLC connected via a serial cable to a Windows PC running MS Excel. Excel would grab the real-time serial (RS232, RS485 or USB) data via a Dynamic Data Exchange link with WinWedge. Excel would analyze and record the data and control the PLC with commands sent to it via WinWedge.

WinWedge and TCP-Wedge can be run on multiple serial or TCP/IP (Ethernet/Internet) connections on one PC to communicate with sensors, controllers and other devices throughout your plant.
