USB Keyboard Wedge: USB Scale-Wedge inputs data from many low cost USB-HID connected postage and package scales. Easily input weight data directly into Excel, Access, inventory applications, accounting programs, any Windows application or any web page.
1) Select scale from those attached to your PC
2) Select your “Hot Key”. When you hit this “Hot Key” (F9 shown in sample screen shot below) the weight data is transferred to your Windows application or web page at the cursor. USB Scale-Wedge also has the option to automatically add keystrokes before or after your weight data to move the cursor automatically for you.
The next option (also see screen shot above) is to select the format that you would like for your weight data when it populates your destination application.
Then click “OK” and your weight data will automatically populate Excel, Access or any Windows application whenever you hit your “hot key” (i.e. F9 in this example).
USB Scale-Wedge works with any USB connected scale that adheres to the USB human interface device class (USB HID class) specification. For technical details, see: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/USB_human_interface_device_class
For example, many simple USB connected postal scales adhere to this specification. (Note: Most laboratory balances, industrial scales and checkweighers do not adhere to this specification and instead use either a RS232 or TCP/IP interface. For these types of scales, our WinWedge software would be a more appropriate tool.)
It will work with all versions of Windows from Windows Vista and newer (including Windows 10). It does not run on really old versions of Windows, i.e. Windows 95 and Windows XP.
