    Collect data from networked devices

    WinWedge Pro comes with TCP-Wedge, which is designed to collect data from networked devices directly into Excel or any Windows application.

    TCP-Wedge is nearly identical in features to WinWedge Pro. The key difference is that instead of configuring a COM port connection, TCP-Wedge allows for the selection of an IP address and port number – in both Client and Server modes.

    Like WinWedge Pro, TCP-Wedge supports powerful DDE capabilities to allow the user to set up sophisticated data collection and device control interfaces with Excel, Access and other DDE-capable applications.

    WinWedge Pro features + Network connectivity

    Connect to any IP-based balance, scale or measuring instrument and the data is automatically transferred to MS Excel or your other Windows applications in real-time.

    Part of the WinWedge Pro bundle

    It also supports all the advanced features of WinWedge Pro including sophisticated device data parsing, filtering and formatting, full 2-way (input/output) network communication to control your devices across your IP network.

    Use with TCP-Com® or a serial device server

    If you have network-connected serial devices via our TCP-Com software or a hardware serial device server (i.e., a Terminal Server), you can use TCP-Wedge to pull the data from those devices directly into Windows applications. Networked data will appear as local data to Windows.

    Easy Setup

    Select COM port or network settings.

    WinWedge & TCP-Wedge connection options.

    Connect your device to your PC or to a network connection. Then, use the Port Settings window to define these connections, i.e. COM port number or IP address.

    WinWedge Pro has more options to parse, filter, and format your data, including:

    • Math functions & binary
    • Support for up to 100 COM or 10,000 network ports
    • More device prompting and control options
    • More DDE options

    Choose your transfer method and activate!

    Data sent to columns in Microsoft Excel.

    Select how you want to send the data (Keystrokes Mode, DDE Mode, or Log to Disk), specify your target app or file, and activate WinWedge.
    Watch as the data from your device appears anywhere you want. You can send the device data directly into a chart or use Excel’s built-in functions to peform real-time analysis.

    WinWedge FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

    Yes. It is extremely easy to use! The configuration process is fully menu driven and has complete, context sensitive, on-line help. You can easily customize all input to your exact specifications. Once you see how easy it is to use WinWedge, you will never again take data readings by hand!

    Yes, we offer two different types of upgrades: software upgrades and license upgrades. A software upgrade is an upgrade from a lesser version number to a newer version number (ex: WinWedge Pro 3 to WinWedge Pro 4). These are generally available for a reduced cost and can be ordered online. You must have a valid serial number for the older license in order to process the upgrade.

    A license upgrade is an upgrade to a higher number of allowed PCs (ex: Single to Team license). These are always available for just the difference in cost between the two licenses. Contact us to get a quote or place an order.

    WinWedge Professional has many advanced features and benefits, including the ability to collect data from networked and internet devices (not just serial!), log data directly to a disk file, and allows for more powerful parsing techniques and math functions.

    WinWedge Professional also bundles together many of our popular software products into one package, including TCP-Wedge, TCP-Com, File-Wedge, and more.

    WinWedge transfers data to other applications by either entering it in the highlighted text field or cell (just like typing on a keyboard) or by passing the data using DDE (Dynamic Data Exchange).

    The keystroke method is extremely simple. Serial data just “pops” into your application as if it were being typed in! This method is the most popular as it is so easy to use.

    The DDE method enables to you to transfer data in the background and create extremely sophisticated data acquisition and device control interfaces.

    WinWedge also lets you add additional keystrokes or DDE commands and, if your application supports it (like Excel) you can even automate real-time data charting and analysis.

    Yes, we provide a demo version of WinWedge Pro for testing & evaluation purposes only.

    All the features of the Pro version are available in this demo, including TCP-Wedge. Limitations include:

    • Non-commercial use only
    • Permanent display of splash window
    • Data transfer sessions are limited to 10 minutes per session; continued use requires closing and re-activating
    • Expires completely after 30 days, requiring unlock purchase
